Are you talking about the Squared or Triangle Khaki Scarves?

I think he's talking about the leather armored vehicle crew uniform as posted in his other thread:

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru....php?t=1014063

These uniforms are very difficult to find. However, sometime this month there was a set of trousers on German eBay. I checked and didn't see it on there. For whatever reason I've seen more trousers for sale over the years than jackets.

At least I have some of the AVC Berets from the BGS left.
The Pic shows the Side Cap only.

also the Bergmütze was used in the earliest years before Schiffchen (50s-early 60s), headgear changed a few times for SPz crews.

Not really that rare, appear either seperately or as sets appear sometimes on ebay, but prepare to pay very high price. Sellers seem to think they are worth high prices, but not seem like anyone buy them, considered they rarely sell.

I think one reason these seem to be on eBay frequently is because the seller is asking too much and therefore they are relisted over and over. I think the trousers I mentioned above are back on eBay again. At least I think this is the one I saw a few weeks ago:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/303263682304?ul_noapp=true

$110 isn't an outrageous price and the seller is accepting offers. Certainly the condition is very nice!

It is more difficult to acquire a matching set by buying pieces individually, so personally I think the trousers lose some value when sold separately.

About 20 yrs. ago we sold the Suits (Jacket/Trousers) from 100-140 Marks, depending on size & condition.
A friend bought a complete Storage from the BGS in Lübeck next to the Airport.
Still have the AVC Berets and lots of HBT Side Caps, next to lot's of original packed Shoulder Boards, mostly 1950's/60's.

it seem like are often listed for prices of several 100s, because "like/same as WW2!", which make seller think is suddenly worth 5x more. These prices are more reasonable.

The early ones, that are only glued and not stitched through both layers? Zum Einschlaufen oder Einnähen? Might need a few pairs sometime, but not sure, if they are the same as the website.
