Didn't do so bad this year. Was only there over night so was good for me. Next year will have a table again.......

As far as rings... Maybe one or 2 authentic HRs! - German PP,,,not many but probably 15 authentic or so.. - of course,,Plenty of fakes:

So here a tiny HJ.. Jeweler made, nice quality,,,but must have been for a new born,,VERY small size,,, at $125. not bad if you don't have an example,,but the size alone made me leave it alone.

- Next some US rings.... The US rings have gone up in value especially the enamels.. They were scattered around,,one or 2 there, one or 3 there.. You really have to look..

I managed to get 2.. [maybe another coming later] ..

so first this Luft.. Pretty good condition. I don't have a black one I have to look up what it is [maybe administration?].. Just a tiny piece of enamel missing:

The other - Well there were bands for sale during the period discouraging couples not to but gold etc. Many you see the thin band example with the swastikas and oaks leafs,,,,a nice ring... But there are others..
This one I grabbed because I remembered I have a advert for the same ring.. A gold tone ring. Nice detail,,has wear / usage to it. But one I was missing and rarely see..
Both were very good deals. I have another I might get. I made an offer. He wants to wait for the end of the show to see IF he gets it. IF he does then great for him. But, IF he doesn't I'll have a good chance for it at a great price next week. I'll let you guys know..........


Dont forget,,,if you want to see more, jackets, helmets, medals etc. check out this link:

Black was for Engineers or Air Ministry Staff. There is a waffenfarbe guide in the GDC Reference Library wink

yeah I could use a Red [Flak] and I'd be happy!....

- Anytime you or a member from Europe [out of states] are thinking of coming to the MAX and would be flying into JFK in NY . I'd be fine picking you up and sharing the ride with any of you! Just would need to know in advance as much as possible.....

An interesting band Gaspare. The leaves look like arrowheads. There is an arrowhead plant. Arrowhead-philodendron, Pfeilspitzen-Philodendron. Wonder if that's what is depicted and what the significance would be.
