He's not the cheapest, but his items are fair.

He sold a uniform from his site that eventually made it onto ebay, that was talked about here and was believed to be a put-together. REALLY expensive items though!

I've bought one or two smaller items from him before his website. He is expensive and I've heard that most of his German stuff (badges) are bad.
I know that some of his stuff is good, but he's probably no different than any other dealer in that you need to know what you are looking at.

US Army Camo HBT Jacket is post-war duck-hunter stuff.

507th Ike has a post-war PFC stripes on it (the woven green on blue chino type)

Armflag is one of the post-war returning home bunting ones, nothing to do with the Airborne.

1st "Allied Airborne" patch is a post-war German made one for the 1st Airborne Army, not a wrtime British-made one.

I gave up looking through after that.

Oh, and prices are ridiculously high in most cases.

Cheers,
Glen.

Hi All,

Some nice 101st patches, but prices are way over the top.

Educational to:

Cheers

Can anyone recommend a place to find WWII airborne items? I am planning on going to the SOS also, will there be a lot of airborne items there? I am mainly looking for anything airborne related: uniforms, patches, jump wings, etc. I am really looking hard for an airborne ike jacket though. Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi Pete-o MSU,

Why don't you put up a wants list?
Are you after dress or combat uniforms/items/equipment?

Cheers

Allan H. and I might have some stuff that interests you. We'll be on the J row at the SOS.

There are normally quite a few airborne items at the SOS. A lot of fake stuff, but honestly I've kicked myself a-plenty for passing up good stuff at the show! Allan H. is one of the world's experts on US airborne militaria, so he's a great guy to get an opinion from before you buy anything at the show.

I bought several times from Richard Maniscalco (owner of screamneagle.com). 99% of his uniforms are 'put-togethers'. I' ve only bought field gear from Richard. Never had any problems with that and he gives an life time guarantee on originality on his items. He's a nice person to deal with, I ordered a T Handle Shovel from his website and it has been lost in the mail somewhere. He gave me two choices: My money back or an other item from his shop. I choose another item, and recieved within 7 days!

The only thing I've heard grumbles about were his prices. What I call "High Retail"

I am sure that Richard is a fine man as far as character. However, with all due respect to him, the prices of many items there are approximately 2 1/2 to 3 times the "going rate" ...for this reason, I have not pulled the trigger on a few that I would love to have.

I spoke with him the phone this evening and he did in fact seem to be a fine person. His prices are a bit insane however.

I have known and dealt with Dickie many years.While his prices can be High on items for Sale,He also pays very well for items he buys.Maybe that helps explain his pricing to a degree.With respect,Robert

I returned an item to him, which a 3d party bought me as a gift...he was quick with the refund to the 3d party, and no issues. Some neat stuff on his site, but $$$.

This guy has alot of great items. As stated, way overpriced. He had some M1s that I thought were fairly priced. I emailed him awile back about some items, never wrote back, so he didn't get my money.

His old mailing address (c. March 2008) was Rappahannock Academy, VA, so draw your own conclusions.

When I returned that gift to him, he was slow on email, but quick to act once I finally got the email. I suspect there are a lot of "tire kickers" on email, so he'd act more promptly from a phone call if you wanted something from his website.

I'm an international buyer, so felt an email was easier. I asked about shipping and payment and got a friendly reply in 24 hrs
