These were just hurry up quick, I kinda suck at photos. Maybe be I'll dig out a few more totes here in a few days! Bret lots of great memories here. The gold pommel luft2 came from Mike Hansen when he was getting out of the hobby( sure miss that dude!) The NSFK is ex Gailen David, the navy and saw back fire is ex Chip Gambino they all tell a story about collectors more than you think. the RAD came from Vern back when gdc started up when the sale section was humping! So much stuff is gone also all the bagged stuff tags etc... Barry Brown some other members here too... Happy to back in the groove 🤙✌️👍🤘

Careful what ya sell you will be hard pressed to get something with the same quality back sold my Broker off to fix a car. That's not something that's replaceable,least that I can find. The 1st luft came from Craig(things were different then) also some ex Brian meaderer pieces. The machete came from a forum member here in Minnesota. Took a drive for that one. Gailen was a great source as was ChipGambino. I just reconnected with Chips son a month back. I can recommend to forge some relationships with people it's a benefit both ways. WhenTom died I found that I had nobody to bounce things off of, Questions ideas thoughts etc...not every response was 100% fact but the integrity was always worth.the stupid question. Bret Van Sant

Hello BretVanSant, very nice, solid and well conditioned collection with a lot of interesting aspects you do show us here. Eg. the postal protection with portepee (all looks period in the pics) is a rare treat. Only the WKC felt sack is a postwar copy or even more a phantasy piece as in this certain configuration I never have seen a period one.
Thank you for showing, regards,
