    Don't bother, he obviously has a shop full of fakes for the tourists looking to buy some "original" FJ items when they visit Kreta.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Can you post me a sample pic of what you're saying so next time i'll look for that and photograph it?
    As for your comment Jerry B i totally agree... That shop also has 2 FJ gravity knives, a 1st model LW dagger and an SA dagger that i didn't bother to photograph them...
    I will go again on Monday and take some more pics of these items and the details for the cap and the helmet you're asking for!

    I don't know about the gravity knives etc but the cap, the helmet and the cloth badge are all fakes IMO.

    Something like this. It's a good ground dug FJ helmet. You can still see the tool marks on the rolled edge even in relic condition.

    The helmet is a compete and utter fake.

    Just look how badly the liner retaining spanner bolt fits as the recess for them, is not right. That is apart from the dreadful paint and decal.

    Cheers, Ade.
