Hi Guy's,
Heads up on this green beret. Don't do it!! So many red flags. Don't bid on this one.

Irv, Wouldn't you agree that the educational quality of this Forum might be greatly enhanced by at least mentioning some of your red flags?

Rgds, Thomas

As would being able to share pictures of the offending item instead of an ebay link which will eventually become worthless when the images vanish form there. I know forum rules prohibit this but....

There is a thread which explains it all better than I could.
http://www.britishbadgeforum.com/for...ad.php?t=43674

This was just a 'Heads up' post. But if you want a couple of red flags:- Badge is fake/restrike, stitching on the inside is wrong for WW2 and that is just from the pictures he has posted.

Read the link to the thread if you are interested.
