    To make a long story short, I happened across an antique store that has a room filled with militaria that reminds me of the den of the 40 Thieves... thousands and items literally just stacked upon each other. There were shelves of helmets, a dresser filled with drawers of bayonets, dress daggers, etc., display cases filled with both uniform removed insignia and insignia on spools... there were rifles and all sorts of gear.

    I noticed some blatant fakes... like helmets with sloppy water transfer decals and HJ knives with diamonds that were solid color and didn't have the fishscale pattern to the red part of the logo...

    I figure that the store has an even mix of authentic stuff, blatant fakes and convincing fakes. I wish I could have snapped a picture, but one of his employees was tailing me the whole time.

    I did make some impulse buys... the first being what I assume is a uniform removed Luftwaffe breast eagle. Here are some pictures... What do you guys think?

    Thanks for the responses, everyone!

    To be honest, there were some things at this store that are very good quality fakes... I decided to make some small, cheap purchases instead of one big purchase. I didn't want to buy a big ticket item and get burnt on it.

    I will definitely go back and buy more/ take pictures.

    Some believe the flag to be a mine flag. Flags meant for minefields were white and larger. The yellow ones were supposed to be used for creating safe corridors in gas infected areas, allowing the troops to move more safely, someone correct me if I am wrong but I always see them sold as mine flags?
    Good stuff Joe.

    Hi Eric,

    The antique store had the flag advertised as mine markers, but I knew better!
