    Few years ago try to sell 1st. model luftwaffe dagger in one web, and there were few potential buyers which want to purchase dagger for 100 € and they say to me that I never get better offer, because they are advanced collectors and know prices on the market - maybe it was one person. Now I can say that this teenage collectors has few e-mails and try to persuade people, which don´t have knowledge. After good buy they also looking for help on forums and everybody helps them - that is not very kind of them. I know that you cant support people whit money, but try to be HONEST. I HATE things like that, and agree with Luke.

    Lol i know ned, i know how some people can be really stupid on craigslist so i lowball them and see what they will take. Trust me i have 2 separate emails just incase i offend the seller with my prices.
    Typical teenager logic, i have to take advantage!!!
    Edit: no she has not responded to me yet with her price, i think i really ticked her off with my price..

    Sorry, but I find it repulsing you publicly admit to trying to rip off old ladies. In my opinion, that's no better, or different than stealing, such as the fakers do, or even that Poland guy who doesn't ship purchased items. In fact, I think you even started a thread about him to prevent others from getting ripped off. So it's not ok to steal all of someone's money, but half is....?
    Question, did you ever consider these ladies could be the vets wife, who's husband paid for the items with blood and sweat vs the insulting two hundred dollars you've offered? I understand not everyone who collects is rich, but if you can't afford what you collect, use dealers auctions(many items sell well below their value), collect something else, or just don't collect at all. Hope this doesn't come off as rude, I just think there are many other ways to obtain these items, even for a fair price.
    Also, you could always try informing the seller of its true value, that's what I do. In one case the vet thanked me for doing so, actually, and still sold them to me for the very low price. He said he was just happy to see the youth interested. Another time the vet gave me, for free, All the items he brought back, including 5 daggers and several rare awards, all awhile, because of me, knowing they were worth around 5-6k.
    So as you can see, sometimes it even pays to be honest; what comes around, goes around.
    Of course, it's your choice how you decide to go about all this, but please consider how you'd feel if it was you who was unknowingly getting ripped off, possibly by buying a fake for the price of a original while under the impression it was authentic. That is, IMO, no different than what you are doing.
