    Hi Chaps, shame he's shut down. I was pretty new to the Friday updates; but had managed to buy some really nice & reasonably priced items, when I was quick enough that is!! I hope he returns at some stage, Cheers, Richard.

    I know Detlev is an honorable man that has been the source of many fine items in the collections of advanced and novice collector alike.

    If anything good can come of his closing shop, perhaps this will spark a resurgence of actually reading books and researching history and construction particulars on an individual level instead of placing faith in a piece of paper that accompanies an item. A good example of why it is not a good practice to take for granted that something good will always be there to rely on for authentication without having to do the footwork...

    Certificates from Detlev 1992-2000 were perceived as serious documents. Later, after several cases of sale of fakes known in Russia with certificates, they have ceased to be arguments for those people who is engaged in a collecting professionally. We have an opportunity to find differences in things, in fact we have an opportunity to compare such things with found on fighting places, it-best in world expertise.You agree with it?

    The first and only time I used him I bought a Infanterie Sturmabzeichen which later was confirmed as a bad fake

    It must have just been bad luck as I know he is very much respected. I wish him well

    In all my years of collecting TR material,Detlev Niemann was by far one of the most arrogant,unprofessional and even childishly petulant dealers I ever had the misfortune to encounter. With his outrageous attitude I wouldn't have trusted buying a pebbled tunic button from him much less anything else of value. It's just my opinion,but I say good riddance-he won't be missed by Me.
