I am not realy in the prices of militaria today, but 500 is what I would expect to be the price at a dealer or fancy fair.
So I think you are doing good!
great price for a very nice looking piece !
Well done~! It sounds like you're on your way to a nice acquisition for a very cheap price.
i did get it today for 300, lol he droped again the 23 dollars, but why is it when you go to buy one thing you end up comming home with more than you set out for, lol, also found two other pices today that will spark some intress, i will post pics of everything bought today in a few. so i spent 7 hours in the car driving and came home with some great additions to my collection. all in all i had to me a great day the hunt for this stuff makes every peace worth that much more!!
here are the pics. i posted two medals i also picked up today, lol there under the medals and decoration sections.
Very nice and well worth the time and effort. I don't think I have ever seen one like this, thank you for posting it.
