Watch out - these are flooding the market!
These ( and more ) come from the same Ebay seller in the UK. Getting good money ( their FJ helmets are reaching 600 pounds ), they are coming out in quantity and are a big trap for the newbie. Yes, Ebay crap is a no-no on our forum but I am ONLY posting this so that we can educate the up and coming ..... forgive me!
I particularly like the Kriegsmarine gerbirgsjager cap!!! ...... undersee mountains perhaps?

They look too well aged, almost like "props"......
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
I've seen these replica Kriegsmarine Officer caps ( with
no aging ) having bids placed and selling for around
$200 - supposedly made by 'expert' European
Hi Steve there was a seller on E-Bay.ca selling the Kreig caps for a long time they were coming out of back east he was getting quite a good dollar.
Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.
Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!
Indeed Mark, there was a dealer selling them at shows
here for $100 or so, but they seem to sell for more
at auction - Having a quick look now on Ebay,
there is one for a 'Buy It Now' price of
$433 CDN + $43 postage......... !
Good lookin out for newbie and all collectors
