I know.. And I appreciate it, believe me .. One day I may want to sell, trade or upgrade this piece.. And I believe a COA Makes that easier. That's my only reason for wanting one.
Referring to the threads about your cross are just as good, cost nothing and you get the opinions of more than one person.
I'm not telling you how to spend your money of course, I completely respect your decision and reasons but just throwing a few points in to think about.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
IMO if you can afford an RK you can afford the COA

What's your opinion on Helmut Weitze COA's?
$250?? I should get into the COA business!
Lowboy...a superb original "Lazy 2" ! The post war ribbon is to die for ! I would kill (METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING OF COURSE !) to have one of my 57er RK's hanging from it.....It is of typical construction by a veteran when wearing his post war or wartime award at an event such as an OdR meeting with civilian clothing ! If you ever replace with a wartime ribbon please sell it me !
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."

Its your money to spend how you wish. If you wish to spend it on a coa its your business.
By the way lovely cross I hope one day to own one as well, enjoy your time as its custodian.
