Hey Geoff,

Is that the Dutch boy with the telescope? That is a first class piece, one of the best first model Lufts one could ever expect to find!

I'm glad that you found such a great piece for yourself, really super!

Nice, nice, nice! Smile

Bill

Thanks guys!This is the same dagger pictured in TWs Luft book.I always loved the piece and wished I could track it down.Later on when I was between jobs,and had no spare cash,I happened to see the mail lady pull by.I promptly opened TJs catalog and leafed through it and instantly recognized the piece.In a panic I called TJ and asked if they would put it on hold.Not having the cash for a down payment, I sent a beautiful Red Cross leaders as a trade in."Ouch!!!But any way,The little "Dutch boy"was now mine.I will try to post more photos soon.Thanks Geoff

Geoff is this a recent purchase or something you have had? I asked because I can only dream of owning such a nice example - did you get it directly from another collector or from..?
Cheers
