I'd like to highlight a few suspect items from an Ebay seller.
The person concerned has been discussed on here before:
They not really bad, not really expensive, and the main thing, NOT definitely fake, but just a little thought provoking.
firstly: WW2 RAF AIRMANS Shirt 1944 original collarless unused. Rare. | eBay
Now it appears to be a type opening all the way down, but generally speaking they were post-war and wartime were the over the head type. Now, look at the close up of the stamp inside the collar. The date part is a lot bolder than the rest, and it is also blurry. As I write this, it's up to £55.00, which is at least double it's value if that date is fake.
secondly: WW1 RFC OBSERVERS TUNIC Original 1918. | eBay
It is old, and it is Cavalry pattern. I was initially concerned by the use of "Esq." as that seems to be mainly used for TA officers, but of course it could still easily all be fine. But take a good look at the close-up of the label. All the script has a shadow, as if it has been over-written. So if it has been over-written, then the date could well have been altered too. Could well be legit, but the "1918" looks messy to me.
Thirdly: WW2 PAIR NAVAL TELEPHONES,Portable in Metal cases. | eBay
I'm probably nit-picking here, but check out the close up of the label. "194" is easily visible, but not the last digit which has been worn away. But, hang on, the top of the plate is shiny with recent wear, as is the right hand rivet. Coincidence, or sand paper?
The chap has 100% positive feedback from a great many satisfied customers, he also has some very nice interesting things for sale, many obviously genuine, but when you know of dodgy practises in the past, you do wonder and start to look more closely don't you? Maybe he has changed his ways, or maybe just got better at it. I do notice he seldom has anything that isn't nicely marked up inside with a stamp, a date, or a name and service number. I find that most things I find do not seem to have them...
WW2 ATS LEATHER GAITERS ,ORIGINALS. | eBay
Firstly they are not ATS gaiters but are of a type mainly given to the Home Guard. Still perfectly feasible I grant you. Look at the wear on them... now look at the lack of wear to the name and number...
