    Default Should've know better...

    The other day I stumbled upon a display of militaria for sale at a antiques shop. The guy had various stuff from all era's and a few daggers and badges that were marked fake. What caught my attention were 2 German Lapel pins which I did not have in my dorment collection. I haven't bought German gear in almost 20 years mainly switching to U.S. Civil war, USMC, and Japanese stuff. The Lapel pins were a High Seas fleet badge and a Veterans SS pin. They were both claimed to be orignal and in the LDO paper. I was suspecious but wondered if fakes of this quality were being made of these smaller collectables?

    Anyway, the shopkeeper says his stuff is 20% off and I go ahead and bite. You know the story already..... I go online and find the SS pin for 19.99. The thing that really bugs me is that now I question some of my other pins I bought in the early 90's some from Manion's even. What a bummer......

    Semper Fi,
    Bob
