Quite extraordinary to see how sought after SS memorabilia are following those links. Nothing new there, of course, but it still astonishes me.
But I won't start a rant..

I hear you about the non-German stuff, American gear is pennies.... Unless the seller puts the words "Airborne" in front of the name and price.
