i sent the same message to him a coupla days ago. nada.
He just ignores such messages. I wonder why!!!! :roll:
So what? No pinned Fake thread? No Ebay guide? Just the same old ranting 5 pages long? Fake after fake? Year after year?
2 hrs to newbie fry. and, over 1k. to quote marlon, "the horror".
At $1750 I think it's safe to say the dumb dumbs that were outbidding each other have no idea just what it is. Imagine the face when someone eventually tells the poor bugger who won it. What a crook.
It would be great to record all of these questionable jackets, but who has the time? A collaborative effort between all of us would be the best approach but would still require a lot of work. In the end it would probably cause some problems as mistakes could be made and opinions could screw up some potentially honest sales. Guess learning the hard way is the best way, I know from experience.
I ran across this jacket being touted as an original WW2, but immediately I was skeptical because of the throat snap instead of clasp, then I noticed the apparent hand warmer pockets. I sent the seller a message saying it's a reproduction from the last twenty or thirty years and that originals don't have hand warmer pockets. Don't know if he just doesn't know or if he is trying to deceive.
Ah yes, utter bullshit. Either a very poorly informed seller who knows 5/8s of bugger all about flying jackets or one of those trying to hook one of those ample eBay buyers of the "there's one born every minute" crowd. Either way it's not worth anywhere near what Mr Seller has it marked for sale for.
Charlatan or wally, take your pick.
Another chancer hoping to entrap a newbie!
Well, the patch looks original....
It is probably a vet's reunion jacket, with original captains bars and possibly patches too.
Revisited this listing and I see the seller has corrected it to read reproduction and is starting bidding at $200 instead of a thousand. So I guess he just doesn't know much about flight jackets.
