    The sad thing is some moron will probably buy this set, thinking that they are getting a great deal.

    I can buy, and assemble the complete listing for under 1000.00, may be i should just start putting this kind of stuff on eBay, and get rich this way...

    A buy it now of $ 5999.00, this is some crazy shit....

    No one who knows anything would touch this one, let alone click that 'confirm bid' button. That Chinese SS lid is a real howler.

    Its garbage like this that gives eBay a bad name, The thing is eBay will allow this to remain, while they have been know to cancel authentic TR period items.

    Someone will buy this thinking they are getting a good deal.

    Whoever this guy is, he's not too stupid. Notice he never said it was real, just "authentic",made from imported German wool. Let the buyer beware.........

    LOL. "you would swear he walked in from the western front in 1941."

    Yeah, if there was a "western front" in 1941. Maybe it was the Great Mannequin War which we all misssed somehow.

    To be fair, the 'Item description' describes it as "brand new, unused condition" which shows he's not representing the uniform as WW2 manufacture although given, his wording is a little ambiguous. Furthermore the product listing is 'WW2, 1939-45, Military, Reproduction, Germany.'

    So, if you read the minutae you won't get burned, if you can't be bothered, tough, it's your hard earned your throwing away.
