I think he's asking around $175 for, just goes to show you that some things are to good to be true, and anyway about 80% of the stuff he has is fake, yet he claims they are all real, like his 5 knights crosses, 2 with swords :wink:

i have one just like that one but in black i paid 10$ for it a few years back
i knew it was to good to be real but i did buy it
for 10$ i'm not bothered ..if i had to pay 175$ for it i would leave it where it was...........the one i have is now in my "wannahave corner" and when i have an original i'm going to use it to keep my table leveled :mrgreen:

someday when i'm all grown up i'll buy an original
:mrgreen: :lol: :aliengray

Bargain Badges

Post by Matt Gibbs » 17 Jul 2002 08:19

One would hope that people have realised that unless you are extremly lucky bargain examples of these just do not happen. I mean, come on $175 for the real deal GOLD version..?
I don't think so...

Kind Regards
Matt Gibbs

this is a typical case of "learned the hard way"


but theblueofnoon don't worry about it everyone get's burned sometimes
personally i rather get burned while spending $10 than $175 :P

i for one ,before i knew there where books and forums like this i bought a really crappy looking woundbadge with the date "20 juli 1944" i never knew it existed but i bought it(that's about 6 years ago when i starded)
i got so pissed of and stopt collecting (thank the man upstairs that i also bought some good pieces)
i picked it up again when i read the forums, talked to other collectors,bought myself some books ( that was this year)and i only have good items now

so don't worry there is still hope ( help me obi "third reich forum" wan kenobi you are my only hope ) :wink:

As Richard stated, if you did get burned, so be it. I got burned many times, did I get mad? Yep. Did I lose faith in ALL dealers and private sellers? Of course not.

I just bought some really good books, and studied my butt off before investing any more $$$ in this hobby.

The other thing that opened my eye's was joining this very forum, if the info you seek can not be found hear it probaly wont be found! :wink:

Also stick by this basic rule of thumb:
If it is to good to be true, IT IS!
Buy the Item , not the story!!

Regards to all, Benjamin
