Came from a guy that does clothing salvaging. You know something like good will. I wanted it in the worst way since he showed it to me. He left it on the wall on a coat hook. I was after him for weeks. Finally I got angry and said here is a 100 dollar bill is it mine or not. He nodded his head and I walked out with it. I love that piece. It is not flashy or the most expensive piece I have. It just speaks to you. I wish I could find another one on the same level as this one.

You are right. Still have a lot after this round of pics.

The buckle came from a estate sale. The story behind it is that the vet had a lot of stuff. The one relative was stealing everything and selling it off for nothing. The relative missed this piece since it was in a overseas cap. Marked org todt on the back in a circle.

Funny story about the mothers cross. My mechanic was at a sale where they were selling trains and autos. He calls about a nazi cross. After a few minutes trying to figure out what he is talking about I left him a bid for 75 since it didnt have the box. He buys it for less. About 30 minutes later some guy walks up to him and asks if he wants to buy the box for 5 dollars. I was shocked.

Last pic for this round. The ring has a medallion of the frozen meat on it. Really detail with the eyes, feathers and beak area. But my camera sucks with close ups.

It has it but the pixel rating is so low. I would spend money on a better camera but that leaves less money for more stuff. Ill take more pics when I get home from running at the sale.

M.,

Lots of beautiful things you've posted for us to look at - most in primo condition, some very rare, and all quite interesting.

Many thanks!

Thanks but I am only about half way though with the next round of pics. I am more ashamed of the lesser quality things I have around. Like mismatched k98 that are clean and the like. Hope you guys enjoy this next round of pics. Remember I didnt even get to the daggers yet.

I love these things. But what dealers want for them is insane. I see them for 350 and up. Both of these are slightly different. In thickness and size.
