BTW welcome to the forum
Thanks Ben, will have a good read through. Thanks also to Gunny Hartmann and yourself for the positive likes and reputation comments. I picked up a small visor cap at a flea market in Hungary with the eagle and deaths head badges attached. The stall owner told me in very bad English that it was an SS tank commanders cap, which I know it is not, I am also fairly convinced that it is a marriage of the cap and badges, all of which are most likely copies. It was, however, quite cheap at 60 euros, so I took a punt on it but until now have had no way of finding out about it. I will post some photos later on the relevant thread section in the hopes that someone can identify what it is and if it is original or not, although I expect the worst.
I would not hold your breath mate at 60 Euros lol
Yeah I know. I kind of new at the time that it was probably a wrong one, but hey, I am an eternal optimist :-) Anyway, I have posted pics on the headwear thread section and had all my worst suspicions realised. One day I will get a nice piece of genuine memorabilia but I think I am going to have to pay big money at a respected memorabilia auction house in order to do so. C'est la vie.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Yeah, just been having a look. However, there is an arms & militaria auction in December at Halls Auctioneers, a very respected auction house just up the road from where I live, and it has some nice helmets and medals on offer, all with full provenance and reasonable guide prices. So I will go along there and see how much they go for. If I get nothing there, I will be back on here looking. If I do get anything I will post some pics for you guys to have a look at, as I would value your opinions.
