Vehicle registration document – old version

As the German vehicle registration document contains no security measures, the only way to identify a complete forgery, other than running a check through Zevis, consists above all in picking up spelling errors in the basic document!

Several spelling errors were identified in the document depicted below.

A fairly poor forgery of a seal of the Landratsamt [District Chief Executive’s Office] in Hof was also used.

1 – correct: „zugeteilt“
2 – correct: „beschriebene“
3 – correct: „Höchstgeschwindigkeit“
4 – The words
„Größenbezeichnung der Bereifung“
should be in this empty field!
5 – correct: „Anhängerkupplung“
6 – correct: „Einleitungsbremse“
Forged Stamp

N.B.:

Approximately 100 000 genuine German vehicle registration documents,
bearing the spelling errors shown below, were properly issued by the city of Cologne (Köln) until more or less October 2004

Daß, instead of the correct: Das
Anhängerlast,instead of the correct: Anhängelast
