    Luft Tropical Pants Fake I Assume

    Bought these several decades ago in a collection I obtained. I believe these are post war copys made with aluminum buckles. They were mildew stained, when I bought them, and I had them laundered. Soes anyone know the correct reenactor value for these vintage copys?

      Bob they are certainly fake. I once, in the early 90s, owned 2 pairs. I just saw a pair on a German dealer's website for 880€, so some still think they are good. I seem to recall Globe Militaria Sold them for $125 back then.

      If I recall correctly, they have a small waist and short legs. Not sure what the demand would be for today's re-enactor...

        Thank you, Willi, for conformation. Many stories flowed around these that they were found, after the war, unissued because of the small size. A smarter faker would have made them larger.

        My original pair are well worn with period patch repair. I would love to find a nice, used, long sleeve shirt with factory applied eagle. I have a mannequin ready, when I find the shirt.

          Yes Bob, many stories about these. Some said they were found in Austria in large bundles. Hence the mildew stains. They also put the markings on an odd place.

          I don't see many shirts around anymore. When they were bring top $ folks were selling them. Now they bring much less and I don't see many on the market.
