Heading off to a huge military estate sale, what should I know before buying?

Article about: The SS is a fake, and I told the owner, who says it is his prized possession (hence the glass case) and there is no way it is fake. The Luftwaffe is for \\$900.

    Hi Jule,
    your report is very interesting and it's funny to see how many "craplectors" don't want to admit thsat their "treasured possessions" are either junk or over-priced common items!
    Looks like you've got yourself a very nice K98k bayonet (Solingen is not the name of one of the makers btw...it's a German City renowned for its blades!)...I cannot be 100% positive on the frog because I'm using a tiny cell phone at the moment and some details are distorted but I'd think twice before dismissing it as a "repro"...what do the other guys in front of bigger laptops/PCs say?
    Cheers

    Yeah, some guy tried to trick me, saying my sawback 98-05 was a Swiss one because it didn't have a date, and I told him "Because it is a R3 (rarity of 3, meaning quite rare) CITO, which made their bayonets only one year during WW1. The guy kept telling me I was wrong, and offered me $175! For a Swiss bayonet, he really wanted to buy it. I have posted my new K98 bayonet on a separate forum, and I have read a lot, and I am quite positive that it is a police issue, for it also has an eagle (missing the swastika, it was stamped a bit off) and the letter "B", here is a picture:

    $900 for the Luftwaffe helmet seems high to me; they are very common, and a nice one, including chinstrap, can be had for $600-700, if you do some legwork.
