Unfortunately in the book of KA Fake about false brands, that John's brother Johannes Schijfsma JS189 was the forger, but that was precisely the one who did not need it, because he was indirectly a supplier of funds through Van Arckel.
The master servant and successor of Jan Schijfsma also made false silver until his death in 1917. He was lazy and naive and so stupid to store his own MT. This makes it easy to expose.
