    And if a seller cant give you good photos when you ask for it, then it is often a sign of something aint right.

    Dont buy anything before you are 101% certain it is a genuine item.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Oh my! You have many good questions. If you are starting out, the best advice is to be patient and study relevant posts. As for books, the question is what genre specifically are you looking into? I know collectors who collect WWII allied war helmets all the way to very, very, rare SS-TV (DougB's jawdropping Totenkopf) helmets. I am sure some hardcore helmet collectors will throw some titles at you, which will be the cat's meow. I am specifically into SS textiles, SS EKMs, and Medals. Helmets are just not my expertise, but i can you that i have learned so much about them by just studying posts. Patience, studying, and paying close attention to details will save you money and heartache!!!
