eBay seller with several "questionable" items.


Recommended Posts

This is just a heads up on an ebay seller in the UK who is quite well known to some for selling both questionable and outright fake items. He often seems to "enhance" original items with something like a fake document or engraved plate. The wording of his listings is quite careful,so as to suggest an item is "original" or "vintage" but without going as far as saying it's 100% authentic,links to some of his latest offerings below.

The dog tags are great! apart from obviously being non original they are named to another dealer friend of the seller who lived a few miles from him!.

The ribbon bar on the pinks and greens....wow...and do I see WWI overseas chevrons but no WWI victory medal on that ribbon bar? funny how there is everything else under the sun on there...must have been on backorder

 

The dog tags must be the super rare experimental non-notched backwards type made from empty beer cans found in SHAEF HQ...

Who recently died, and who earlier in the year was charged with child pornography allegations. Very poor taste to see these fake tags being sold.

This guy has yet another item with his usual "Eighth Air Force pub story" http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW2-USAAF-Flying-Ginny-presentation-piece-390-BG-Grafton-Underwood-/380531167483?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item58996cd0fb

 

He seems to roll this story out quite often,I've seen several such items and know of one which has found itself into a UK museum.
