hello,

Just like to introduce myself as a new member of the forum... I am from Belgium and have been (and still) interested in US Paratrooper... Since a few years, probbaly due to the influence of a friend collector :-), I am more and more interested in German stuff, especially linked with The Bulge... I like detailed description of the object what makes sometime possible the difference between original or fake... i like also those kind of forum where you learn a lot. I like also a kind of intellectual or "scientific" approach of the collection...

Thanks for accepting me here...

Serge

Hello and welcome!

US paratrooper items and Battle of the Bulge!

You picked a high want items for collectors and I might add expensive!

Complete grouping was sold on ebay a few months ago! Collectors were talking about it on the internet!

Helmet was included! I believe price was $20.000

Many vets were here in the US and stuff pops up once in a while!

Couple years ago I got 2 named Purple Hearts out of pawn shop!

1 was named too a guy from Easy Company from Cleveland Ohio,

Went to Find a grave and entered a name and up it came with a picture of grave!

A well known Purple Heart guy found it on internet in 10 min!

I sold it for 500.00 since with out his info it meant nothing! I pd 50.00

Another Purple Heart came in pawn shop with wth a couple pics and info and daughter sold it for 25.00

Named!

In my area of forum! Collectors Corner! I have just started showing US stuff 3 parts so far!

And the One Purple Heart is shown! Named! Take a look


I have a gut that was 82nd Airborne Vietnam! His father inlaw was ww2 paratooper!

His stuff is on a maniken!


Stuff is still in homes but hard to get!


Tell us about why you like the stuff and maybe what you collect!

Serge,,, yes science is the answer to much now days.... So you like the U.S. and German pieces.. On the German badges there are a lot of good monographs out in print to check out... These forums also valuable tools..
What kind of items you like? Badges? equipment?, ID books? etc.??
