Fellow Collectors,

Our old friend Ralph K. passed away on October 31st, 2014. He was a good solid man and a champion of the hobby. We've lost a lot of fine men this past year. May they all rest in peace ...

RIP

I, too, am saddened by this loss to our hobby.

He had the most amazing collection of etched bayonets and daggers.

He and I would share our pictures.

John


Always looking for Eickhorns and etched bayonets.

RIP Ralph,

Knowing you and dealing with you has been a pleasure. Our collecting world has been lessened with your passing!

One of the truly great hobby pioneers. He opened up a little known field of Third Reich collecting. He will be missed. Sincerely, Ryan Sellick
