    Wow just looked at the prices! 80 GBP for an HJ armband! Even if it was a good example that price is silly high.

    Thank you guys for your response.

    My feeling in combination with you doubt says to me that probably the armband is not authentic..

    The dealer give money back guaranteed but i think i keep the armband for further research, i really want to check if the armband is original.

    Hello Darin,

    The prices for militaria in Great Britain are widely overpriced that nowhere else! I don't understand why !

    Hello Eric,
    I think there is a thought process there that dates back to the war. British troops were forbidden to bring items back from the war and threatened with punishment if found to have items in their possession upon return. Many British troops threw items overboard from ships into the sea. I think this attitude makes the sellers there believe the items have more value possibly. You are correct, I have noted that sellers in the U.K. often prices items very high. Not all U.K. dealers do this but many of them do.

    Hi Darin,

    except Toby Rowan, I have never seen competitive prices in the UK.
    As regards the market in Europe, the cheapest militaria is in Italy.
    In France, we are fortunate to have reasonable prices but the quality and authenticity can be very disappointing.
    I don't think that a HJ armband costs more than € 80 now, that's just my opinion!

    ? When i look at sites like MYMILITARIA, that stock 50% fakes and fantasy, at astronomical prices, i must say that i cant agree.
    Maybe you have special Italian sites you visit, but the Italian sites i know, are ALL, overpriced :-/

    The UK sites, especially those on the lazy concept-500 server, are also all overpriced, some of the way overpriced!! In general though, the UK sites are fleecing.
