Default International Militaria vs Badgeman

Just wondering if it’s just me that thinks that International Militaria and the infamous “badgeman” are one and the same person. The stock photographs, item descriptions and vagueness as to the items being fake appear identical….

You are not alone - I arrived at the same conclusion some time ago

The fact that International Militaria has in their terms :

And uses a "Ghost Mail" address I don't think I'd buy anything from them.

There was a thread on int.Militaria when he first popped up, sadly he threatened legal action so it was removed.

In it I believe the hallmarks were discussed and prior to using IM (Int.Militaria) another was used that were believed to be the owners initials following some other digging around the ghost mail address. It contained a ‘T’ but I cannot remember the other letter.

I do not believe int.militaria is Henry Lyttle aka badgeman.
