    Just to give a quick update that the lines of communication have been reopened through a third party and Gus has agreed to make this right. I will update the thread with any new developments.

    Thank everyone here for their continued support.

    Perhaps a thread title change to "Important! Gus Villarreal is a Stand Up Guy!! " may now be in order??

    Typical for the lack of moderation over at WAF. The victim is being blamed by some for the dishonesty of the seller. Ten pages over at WAF. Over there, everyone needs to get their two cents in.
    The other site manifests the worst of the Zeitgeist. Thanks to our moderators and members that we can live and breath clean air on this site.
    Among the lords of the flies the stench of generalized mental putrefaction and promiscuous spiritual defecation is the norm. Pfui.
    damit, basta.

    I normally never comment on these threads for fear of accidentally saying something stupid (which my wife will tell you I do very well)

    I'm glad to see it appears to have been settled.

    But similar to what FB has said, this thread vs. the one on WAF clearly shows the difference of how our members, Mods and Admins conduct themselves. This is what I am here. Nothing more to say.
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    'Agreeing to pay' is only what Gus said 6 months ago, the proof of the pudding will be when he actually pays. Hope this episode can be put to bed and the snarling dog pit that is the WAF thread be consigned to history.

    Hello all,

    I purchased a cap on February 26, 2016 while attending the Show of Shows in Louisville, Kentucky. The seller told me to my face that if the cap wasn't right he would give me my money back. I paid $4,000 for the cap. Upon photographing the cap and posting it for discussion on this forum, the cap did not turn out to be what it needed to

    The seller provided me with a piece of paper saying he acquired the cap in 1976 while attending a gun-show and it was purchased from George Peterson and he also provided me with his phone number and address (P.O. Box)

    When I spoke with him on the phone about the outcome of the thread, he stated he would accept a return but needed some time to gather the money. I mailed the cap back to him and it was picked up and signed for after some time, I believe by his wife. The tracking details are here:

    https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfi...%204311%200912

    Gus Villarreal has not returned my money, has ignored every possible attempt to contact him, and has taken back the cap. He still sets up at the shows and goes about like he did not blatantly steal $4,000 from another collector - but that is exactly what happened.

    I am out this money and Gustavo of San Antonio, Texas still has his cap.

    I thought you all should know.

    When discussed on the forum the cap was given a thumbs down in two different sections:

    SS Panzer M43 cap w/ two-piece insignia - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums

    SS Panzer M43 cap w/ two-piece insignia - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums

    Here are the two pieces of paper Gus provided me with that he wrote out when I purchased the cap. Considering I sent him back the cap on April 8th and he has not refunded me (and will not answer or return phone calls) this is what my $4,000 has bought me. Like I said, he told me he would give me my money back to my face in the event the cap turned out to not be what it needed to be.

    Any updates William on this situation with Gus?
