    anyone here ever bought from oakleaf militaria?
    I have heard mixed reviews about this dealer, since you asked. A lot of his smaller items are correct, but a bit pricey. There are several authorities that do not like a few of the dealer's high-end items, to say the least.

    As with any dealer out there, prior to purchase, do your research and get a second opinion; its how we all learn as a collector community. Prior to spending any money, post the item(s) up for discussion to ensure you don't get stuck with a reproduction. Another good idea is to purchase from the online forums directly, and many have a "for sale" or "classifieds" section to them. I would venture to say that 99.9% of the time if an item is posted for sale and is questionable, it is weeded out by forum staff rather quickly - so the stuff you're buying is legit, and typically much cheaper than online retailers, as it is a collector to collector transaction.

    this is the only photo i have of hans. the original story my dad told me was that when his aunty showed him the medals when he was young there were the medals,a loaded luger, and a party book signed by adolf hitler at the nuremburg rally sitting in a cigar box. when he went back to germany in later years the party book was gone and all that remained was the luger,medals, and documents. (the luger was given to a museum as we live in australia) unfortunatly hanses wife had developed dementia and could barely remember who hans was or that the party book existed, and as for his uniform i think he was buried in it as he died a couple years after the war of lung cancer. better with him than with me i think.
