Classifieds Bad M40 Wire
This is quite an obvious fake on the estand at the moment. The same seller has a Das Reich tunic too, not my area but ridiculously cheap and should be looked at by someone who knows cloth I feel.

Hi Krad...not place to close this ad...but if you and others can generate a few more obvious reasons why these 2 items are no good..then at that point myself or another Moderator will close the ad. Regards Larry

I agree with Krad on the helmet at least, Cloth items are not my thing but that helmet is bad, Bad, Bad! It should not be on our ads. Cheers, Sean.
Thanks Larry. The tunic will need another eye but the helmet is a screamer. No patina anywhere but particularly under and around the wire, M40 with two decals is a basic red flag but both decals are pre aged printed fakes. The background on the eagle decal has a strange blue tone to it where it should be deep black. The liner looks to be one of the typical repro liners from ebay as you see here:
REPRODUCTION GERMAN WWII HELMET LINER SIZE 64 SHELL 57 LINER MADE IN EUROPE! | eBay
the only thing original IMO is the shell and perhaps the liner pins.
Thanks for the heads up.
All the items have been removed.

..... unless the price was not in Euros but Ethiopoan Birrs!
Then its a bargain! !! ( 800 Birr = 29.7 Euros )
