    Small Ads Rip-Off

    Philippe you are so right. I rushed into it and the language was definitely an issue for me. What do they say? If it’s too good to be true, it probably is! All the best Jeremy

    Small Ads Rip-Off

    Hi Coert I contacted Kleinanzeigen but had no reply. I’ll give it another go and see if I get anywhere with them. I must not be too trusting in the future. All the best Jeremy

    Small Ads Rip-Off

    Hi Steve No, it was after he had the money that everything went quiet. Before that he’d said he’d give me tracking info but despite numerous reminders he hasn’t replied to anything. Cheers Jeremy

    Small Ads Rip-Off

    Hi Peter I suspect it’s not been sent as everything went silent after I paid despite numerous reminders. Unfortunately my German is limited to Google translate so all rather difficult to follow up. I bought a 74th haube off small ads a while back, no problems, went like a dream. All the best Jeremy

    Small Ads Rip-Off

    FAR 10/46 Wappen

    Brian/Tony Nice wappen, thanks for posting. I bought that one last year, it looks good but has been twisted a bit which is why the bandeaus are misaligned. Merry Christmas

    Olga Dragoner

    Hope this fits the bill. M89 EM's degen made by Alex Coppel of Solingen in 1891. Sword and scabbard are BOTH marked 25D 1 14 and the remains of the sword knot has a white tassel and fringe.

    Kaiserzeit Magazine

    Wow, this takes me back. Used to get Kaiserzeit delivered over to the UK when I first started collecting as a teenager. No internet (and no eBay) just Kaiserzeit, and Colonel Rankin's pickelhaube book. Militaria sales at the Black Prince pub in Bexley, Kent and no idea if I was buying genuine...

    WTB Officer's Pickelhaube Shell

    I've just taken delivery of an engineer officers haube with great metalwork but a totally wrecked shell. Before I pester Brian to see if it's even possible to bring back to life, does anyone have an officer's shell they're thinking of moving on? If push comes to shove I could reuse the front...
