    As far as the 'M32' goes, what's available on the repro market is easily recognizable as fake... to start with, most 'modern M32' have padded shoulders... I admit that many newbies could fall for aged stuff, but there's nothing yet that a few good books and a forum such as this one could not prevent.
    yet.......... in the case of belt buckles their practically on the money in fact Ben actually posted a buckle last week that looked very much like an original but is infact fake. they get better and better especially as technology increases and grows

    I should add that I've sold some repro stuff to reenactors over the last month (helping a friend whose business went bad) and I would NEVER personally attempt to pass the stuff I came across as 'real'. I figure that those two markets should never cross (reenactment & costuming VS collection).
    That's why I love this Forum, It's a great place to learn and get original items!
    I've picked up a few original SS armbands lately and thanks to the forum I sleep well at night.
    Getting into this militaria at a young age is difficult, but just like grammar school, We'll get everyone through it!

    I went on this thread, and saw you posing in a German uniform, I thought you were wering a original one ! ! Shouldn't be doing that ! :P
    Then I realise it was fake

    Hey guys.
    Good stuff out there.
    It's very hard to get real SS stuff here in N.Z.
    There are a few private auction houses where you might find SS stuff, but online is the only way.
    But as you know, once you got it you are going to keep it. So supply is low.
    The reason I got a repo was for reenactment purposes only.
    To wear a real one would be crazy.
    I don't like fakes and people who try to pass stuff off as real.
    This uniform is the only fake thing I own.
    But it's a means to an end for what I want to do with it.
    Still wish I had a real one though!!
    Maybe one day.

    It is a cruel, but no less true fact that authentic black SS uniforms are in a few hands. They have never been common, but such is easier to find today, at its price, than when I started in the 1960s. The challenges today are many times more vexing because of price, the sophistication of the fakes, as well as the fun house hall of mirrors that is signified by these sites. More smoke than light operates here, though, if you are interested in black SS uniforms, we here have done more for you than anyone else. A lot more and in detail and at great costs in time, and treasure.
    Sometimes these things come to market where one can snag them, but often they change hands behind the scenes. Surely such a statement will cause even greater paranoia, but the cost of such an item is well reflected in the dealer sites, and then, if you make it to the glamor shows, you can surely get a discount.
    Do not collect this material without at least several months of careful study of books on German history, the history of the SS, and especially its organization.
    damit, basta.

ID:	292159The leading collector in the US, who was at this more than a decade before me, told me recently that he bought an Allgemeine SS officer's uniform for 150 dollars in 1959, at which time I was six years old. My first was more than a decade later, and cost all of 275 dollars in trade....a large sum, when the 08/15 army Waffenrock cost all of 35 dollars.Click image for larger version.
