    SS tropical skulls are relatively cheap, Circa 100, if original.

    Thanks for the info on the skull. Well....here's the deal. The guys said he will take $1700.00 for the entire lot. Personally, I think that is WAY too much, but maybe I'm wrong. What do you all think? Is that a fair price for the lot? Thanks again for all your help!

    Yes, it would.

    If it was offered to me I would look at the lot as a whole and ask myself why he is selling what he says is genuine third Reich with US patches, some post war by the looks of it. Why is he not selling off bits individually. Most people would agree you always make more money this way. Or is he trying to disguise fakes under the shadow of genuine bits.

    Whats his prices like? Are they stupidly low, imagine they are all genuine and work out the price where it should all be at. If his price is a long way under that, as why?

    can you go view the pieces first, ask if you could meet him somewhere and examine then, take a friend or someone who knows whats good. Make sure you take a good magnified glass, so you can see if metal pieces have been cast. Most of all repro's are cast, which in cases of some originals where never done.

    Sorry for my seemingly skeptical views, but always play it safe, there so much 'dodgy' gear out there.

    Hi Bill,

    it seems a bit much to me, like nearly double what the original German items would be worth. I have no idea on the US stuff, but I assume its not worth a lot-unless there is some very rare unit patchs-.

    Jerry, that's kinda what my gut told me, but I was not sure of the value of the SS stuff and the Afrika cuff. I think those are probably the 2 most valuable items in the lot. I'm going to email him and ask him if he will sell pieces, but he sounded like he was dead set on selling it as a lot. thanks

    Hi Bill,

    The ak cufftitle is worth about 90-120, the Heer tropical tunic eagle is worth 150-200, some of the Heer tunic eagles are worth 30-60. The Iron crosses are worth 50 each. The luft bevo eagle, if original 60-90. Sorry the prices are in s.

    If it is an original (which I doubt), the SS tropical cap eagle would be the most valuable item and they are rare.

    Thanks for the info on the prices! I will just convert the pounds to US dollars--not a problem. At least this way if he does sell pieces, I will have an idea of price. thanks!
