    Most look OK to me, but I think the two Luft tropical helmet eagles are bad. SS skulls are a minefield, so I can't help there.

    Thanks for that , the helmet Eagles you say are bad , you mean condition wise or none genuine ?
    Like you say , as much as ive read about the skulls i understand what you say , its a minefield , i tend to beleive that the lighter one of the 2 maybe suspect , but perhaps somebody else could comment ?

    Sounds stupid also , but am having trouble confirming the actual titles eg what they was sold as to what it actually are.. which chevron is which , basically what is what etc etc..
    Like i say im new to this and need to be sure , i have purchased a few books but not every type is listed.
    What i read tends to contradict a little .
    Again thanks in advance , i really appreciate the help
