Dear fellow collectors,

I would like to inform you about the fact that ebay.com since several months follows a policy that makes it impossible for people in Germany to view, bid on and buy items that are listed in the category


The background of this obviously is the fact that items that show the Nazi swastika-symbol are prohibited by law in Germany regarding their sale, advertising and posession. NOT PROHIBITED, however, are all other German items from that period that do not show that symbol.

So, when you list an item on ebay please have in mind that all potential bidders and buyers from Germany are automatically blocked when you chose the above mentioned category. Thank you!

Best wishes and happy Easter holidays,

Michael Busch
