Reca wasn't the typical 350 lb cammo couch potato special ops wannabe who amasses tons of guns, gear and acts like a serious SO dude, but mostly just eats, plays first person shooter video games and watches TV til 3 AM. Oh, and don't forget the monster jacked up tricked out 4WD diesel pickup truck.

He seems to have really had the training.

But the KGB ID is fake and maybe the passports are too.

Can't quite put it all together. Let's ask IBM to run it through Watson. Failing that I'll ask Snow.

The whole thing looks like he played a spy for some years and somehow got caught up in the Cooper story and blended them together.

Stolen Espionage  :rofl:

You may have nailed it Shutter.

The forum is a meat grinder for suspects. They come is as USDA Prime steaks and exit as cheap hamburger.

If the Soviet card is fake, then it makes it more likely the British passport was faked.
Did people see what I said about the different name on it's signature, and the odd 1/4 seal on the Reca photo?

I'd like to see how the Reca photo is on the passport. It's odd it has some kind of vertical seal or printing on it that matches the background?
But it also has a weird 1/4 seal.

And the signature is not Reca?


don't quote me but I think they said he had different names (alias)....gotta have those to be a spy  ;)

reading a collector's forum talking about fake kgb cards on ebay

one said
"Yes, they are faked, especially those for the KGB. A fairly easy job, especially if you have access to old paper stock. The easiest way to tell a fake is to see the same guy's picture on several documents- often under different names."

Bruce wrote about Reca: "Or he became a fascinating participant in an extraordinary charade. The pile of foreign passports was interesting to see and thumb through. Do I believe Reca was a hit man - no, not really. I don't think real assassins save their passports as kinds of souvenirs."

Why on Earth would a spook assassin have a bunch of foreign passports WITH HIS REAL NAME ON THEM? All the passports I saw at Portland (and they looked 100% genuine, with many foreign entry stamps) had Reca's real name on them.

Why are diatoms on the money laughing?

Is there new information about diatoms?

someone noted that the real KGB id's seem to all have the beautiful script I noted, but Reca's doesn't

"3. The writing: All of the KGB documents of this type that I have seen have a beautiful script writing, almost like caligraphy in execution. this one looks like someone attempted to do it, but without success. The writing to me looks too...clumsy, I guess."

I see one British passport and the rest US passports in this picture

The signature page on the British passport is now attached. Why is it not his name?

Three of these IDs contain the exact same photo. Likely they were made at the same time. I'd have a look at the paper they were printed on. Could have been made last year.

Here is a pic that includes the CCCP id or whatever it is? (what is it?)

It has his name, and the picture is the same picture as in the British passport, so probably from same time period?

You beat me to it.

very close

Shoddy glue-up job on Reca's doc. See how the photo corners are flush on the other ID? Walt's looks like his was made with scissors and a fifth of scotch. Did he ever work in a hotel? They tend to gather a collection of various passports over the years.

The profit from a Cooper suspect nowadays can be $100k

at one point is it fraud? Never. That's the beauty of DBC...everyone can mint money..even Blevins!
