Yes, MilTec has not the best reputation.

But I always find a lot of intersting cheap pieces there.

For example I found very early NVA helmets for 5 € there in mint condition, FJ60 Bw helmets, US M8 bajonet sheats without M1910 hooks fpr 8 € the piece etc.

But you can only buying there if you are a registred dealer, and you have to look the pieces in their store. If you order by mail, you will get only items from the stock.

Yeah, the good old "Postenraum".

Its much the same as with many dealers... digging through their shops / storage reveals lots of interesting stuff whil buying via the net will bring you the fist item from the big pile... I really would like to investigate the warehouse of Räer for example. Everytime I visit their shop I find interesting things they found in their stock... last time it was a 1959 labeled BW tankers beret.

Their Basement is a nice Place to dig. I'm not that often there, but if, I allway's try to get hold of the right guy to go there.

I'm thinking this must be the kampftasche klein.
Unfortunately the stamp is unreadable so I'm not able to date this one.

Yes, it is! It's the older Style with the Plastic Coated Material Straps. Later they switched to the Web Straps.

Thanks Nico now I have to search for the carry slings.
Got a couple duffle bags filled with straps,belts and slings that need sorting out.
My shed is a smaller version of what you have I sometimes think.
Coming across stuff I didn't even know it was there.
All the best,
Kees

I think, sometimes I have the same problem about the origin.
Sometimes I would be happy just to have some Duffle Bags to sort out.
Tomorrow's sunday means for me: Sort at least 20 Cases, cut out the front Part of Veggie Cases to create a 5 Meter high Pile as a shelf, fill it, mark it and so on.
After this I sort out Stuff for customers, pack the Parcels and maybe after 10 Hours I find out that i didn't had a Breakfast again as I just wanted to be there for 2 Hours. That's my normal day.

And yet you still find time answering all questions on the WAF and posting all those DDR medals etc.
Man,you deserve at least the Bundesverdienstkreuz.
How about you deploy some females ?
Wife,daughter ?
Girlfriends ?
Polish girls ?
But serious;there must be young collectors that would love to help you out.
For learning purposes and perhaps to get discounts.
If I was young and had such a large seller nearby,I wouldn't hesitate.
All the best,
Kees

Kees,
at least my Grandpa got the Cross. Actually 3 of them, 2 Irons and a BVK.
When I was married, my wife helped me more in my Carpenter Shop then my Storages, sometimes on Shows as she did the same with a Militaria Shop. Some forum Members know her.
Sadly I have no daughter, so one of my sisters helped me when she was young. She loved it to sort Buttons and to count and seal them counted in Bags. I still kept some of them. Now she's studying and working for her Doctor in History of Arts at the University of Bern.
The other one is a lazy Singer at the Opera.
Girlfrinds? to expensive, same with the polish Girls.
You know, Diamonds are a Girls best Friend, they allway's want to get some Bling-bling.
For a while I had some Collectors Helping out. they allway's got something for their Collection, but now all are lazy as I want to be.
Today I sorted Insignia for 5 Hour's, made some Pic's, now I'm on my Desk/Sofa to ID them, later I post them on my Website, so today i make my 15 Hours. Some minutes in between I have some fun in the Kitchen to get a Pizza and a Drink. The only lazy Hour today was at Taste of America, my favourite Diner, not far from My Place in Berlin. A nice Guy I allway's try to help. When he didn't had his Diner, after his old Partner closed the Place to early by taking out all the furniture to sell it, he helped me nearly every day when I was moving my Carpenter Shop. So, if you ever come to Berlin, we have to have a Break there, then we can go to Storage.
But, it's allways the same: I have the knowledge, so I have the work.
Now I have to stop fun and go back to work.

Nico;
They say youth has the future.
If they are to lazy,what does that say ?
Thanks for sharing some dealers point of view.
Maybe we've met already.
Years ago I went to the fairs at Dortmund and Wesel,maybe you were there.
All the best.
Kees

I did Dortmund only one time as I helped another Dealer. A Year later I married her. Normally I'm doing the Kassel Shows and this year, after a 2 year break, I do Pütnitz again.
