I've bought from all these guys and never had a problem (touch wood). Before I buy from a new seller I always do some research, check the forums for thread complaints etc and I also ask the more experienced collectors for their opinions. Like I say, so far so good.

I did read those reviews......I tend to try something myself and form my own opinion, I did my research, asked the dealer a few questions, which they were happy to do, they were friendly and very open. I ended up with s very nice water firefighters lightweight parade helmet, which was put on this forum and deemed a good piece. So my dealings with third Reich depot have been positive. I suppose the higher end pieces, SS and others, would come under more scrutiny and suspicion. But I think if you do your research, know what your getting and are confident with the dealers replies to your questions then you can cover all your bases and purchase with confidence.
I may have been lucky, but my dealings with thrum have been more than positive
I see their website hasn't been updated since early 2010, also almost everything seems to be marked as sold so i figure they aren't really in business anymore? It seems the site was run by the owners wife after he was shot dead by police!?!
Yes that is quite true regarding her husband. I only bought something off thrum today, so they are well and truly in business
Heres an excelent one, got myself great items there today. Ist located in hamburg
The shop itself is amazing, i stayed there almost 2 hours looking at stuff. as i said amazing.
