First time I viewed this thread, I am just amazed at your finds! My jaw is still on the floor! Makes you wonder about what's out there. Is your store well known for militaria? I'm on the east coast curious how you generate so much activity.
This thread explains your avatar! No wonder he looks like he won the lottery....every other day I'm not going to wish you luck, you already got it!
Here is a pic:
This helps actually... people come into the coin store with gold or coins and say... "oh I have one of those in my attic" so having them on display helps.
It also helps that my local competitors in the Militaria market like to skin people alive when making offers on items. I make fair honest offers and I get a lot of stuff bought that way. Not to mention a very small bit of advertising.
Love that helmet......... !
The tropical Heer tunic is an old movie prop, construction is incorrect, the eagle is an embroidered fake and the collar tabs are the printed type typical of movie props. I hope it was cheap or you can send it back.
Whatever its just an opinion.
That was a concern of mine as well. I'm glad you pointed that out and confirmed my suspicion. I didn't like the tabs so I didn't pay much for it.
