Lucky to get my money back for this M43 Army, made from great coat material
I bought, a fake Hitlerjugend cufftitle on a flea market a few years back.
Before i started collecting for 70 Euro.
I see gunny that you have a bad SS buckle, I nearly bought one the other week, thank goodness Ben has that pinned fake SS buckle thread, In that case I found it easier to compare it to a known fake than troll through all the originals.
Its nice to see that some of you have not been biting yet and some have only made the odd mistake.
Again thanks all for showing, but I am sure there must be more. None of us are prefect are we.
I have bought tons of fakes, mostly before I joined the forum. Here are some more recent photos from my hall of shame:
Original armband, post war insignia (for sale if anybody wants it)
Online Auction buy, I knew something was wrong when I won it for $40
Luckily I got a partial refund on this DRK fake
Post war paint, original shell, liner, chinstrap, and cover
Don't ask lol
Your correct Gunny that one I seen was £35 alarm bells were ringing as it was at an auction. I seen someone there pay £80 for a hollow backed brass black wound badge with 95% of its paint removed, it was listed as gold, By the way I hope your new job is going ok.
Sir payne what is that second helmet, and thanks for posting.
Hi Rod, It is an Imperial Japanese Navy Type 90.
Here a bodge US VN issue auto watch I got burned on Wifey kicked me on this one!!! watch out for the serial no 17719
