Been collecting these things for sometime, thought I'd post a few I'd had cased. Our own Bill Warda does the casing for me and a great job he does.

Fiddling around with the camera and re-shot these two old prizes, some might remember them? The lower example was the first nice shooting medal I ever saw, quite some years back, bought it from Don Falk. I never had any real intention of collecting these things, heh, go figure ... grin

Thanks and good collecting!

Gents,

Mike, thanks ...

This just arrived for my shooting medal collection. Got this from fellow collector and friend 'hdmarley,' Dustin Johnson. This Third Reich example is dated 1934 and is in lovely condition. Perfect enameling and all the frosted, 800 silver-work is near new. Never seen this particular pattern before either so that's an additional bonus for me. And if that weren't enough, it's still attached to its orinal green/white Saxon neck ribbon.

Wishing everyone a good spring/summer collecting season. wink

Best!

Bill

Gary, I like them all, but especially the award for crossbow. I have the crossbow and would love to find an award like this to go with it. Bill, You always do a great job with the cases and makes the displays really stand out. Nice to have my morning coffee while looking at items such as these. More please... James

James,

Your kind thoughts are appreciated, gracias!

I agree with your thoughts on morning coffee completely, there's nothing like the tranquility of a good cuppa joe while reviewing some nice collectibles - one of my favorite things. Sunday mornings are even better as we usually brew up some Costa Rican java, love that Arabica beanage! grin

I've been going through some old snaps and tuning them up a tad ... hope you won't be cross if I post some that may have been posted before? I still get a kick if someone else enjoys looking at these things too. I might post a few that don't necessarily belong in the imperial forum, but hey, what the heck, no? Mostly pics of either my own or my old buddy Gary's collections. Hope I won't be breaking any protocol..?

Let me see what I can conjure up ... cool

Best!

B~

Well Gents,

It's Sunday morning, I've got a nice strong cup of Costa Rican coffee here and got some photos ready to go ...

... hope you enjoy!

Bill, I am having that morning cup of coffee and enjoying the views. I like them all, but especially the 1935 schutzen chain. If someone wants to collect a variety of art, then collect the hunting and shooting medals (if you can find them). Seldom see two pieces alike and each has a story to tell. thanks again for sharing and hope to see more the next cup of coffee you have. James

Bill, Better than watching the Masters on TV. I did not know you collected the chains and those are nice ones. Many thanks for sharing. James
