    I usually make it a policy to never discuss prices on the open forum,
    especially on items currently listed for sale but---I want some of what ever
    this guy's smoking.

    I think he is not smoking but rather sniffing - possibly acetone
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    He's also selling this post war 6th U.S. Army Corps patch for $200........Same one elsewhere wartime issue can be bought for under $10.

    It appears the 'enthusiastic' vendor may be of Persian (Iranian) extract, or has interests therein, so I'd imagine he's possibly on the Hookah pipe!

    If he is in fact offering the blue circular patch with the superimposed white 6 as a being a U.S. 6th Army shoulder patch, he is seriously misinformed. That patch is a 6th Corps shoulder patch. I donít know what it was in WWII, but it was probably the same then. Below is a page from The American Armies and Battlefields in Europe (GPO 1938). The patch in question is in the lower left corner.

    Just because it's original or old,
    Doesn't mean it's gold.........
