    Is there a online UK auction that is an alternative to Ebay?

    Yes I tried the google but was wondering if anyone else had any experence of a reliable online aution other than ebay?
    I only ask because I want to sell some WW2 German medals that where given to me by a family member and ebay wont allow them to be sold.

    I actually used qxl.com long before I ever used eBay. It seems to have died a bit of a death though :(.

    The sale of Nazi memorabilia is banned on ebay. I believe most ww2 era medals have the swastika on them.

    Kamerad correct Ebay for some reason say that WW2 German medals with the Nazi ensignia is considered as Hate catagory. I do not agree as unfortunate as it was it is part of our history. BTW I am not a Nazi, my farther and his brothers fought in WW2 and that's how I got the medals.

    I have loads, I have uploaded pic's to photobucket in antisipation I can sell them on an online auction. I would give you a link to see them but feel uneasy about breaking admin rules here at this forum, so if a modirator says it's ok I will give the link.
    But verbally i have Ironcross 1st class cased, Mothers cross cased, SS cap badge and so on.

    A search for "nazi" comes up with lots (>500) of results though...
