How much would you need to sell it all? I'm REALLY interested in it. Message me
When you donate anything, that is if they will accept the donation, it becomes their property to do with as they see fit. That includes selling anything that they don't want. The fact that it all came from one individual doesn't mean anything to museum management. They will deacquisition everything that they don't want and despose of through sales.
Well, Like I said before I would really like to try and help out the son of this paratrooper. So, selling it would be the best option. I hate to do it, because I'll never run into something like this again.
any jump wings with stars?
Nice collection . But on the other subject of donations to museums. There is an alternative. You can give them on long term loan to a museum. But make sure you keep proof of ownership. I once donated a load of Northern Ireland conflict related artifacts to the Cheshire Regimental Museum in Chester. They never made it to any display cases. Never again!
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
Wow, an outstanding time capsule!! Top quality items all to one owner. I personally dont think I could even force myself to sell it......this is something any collector would dream of finding and displaying with pride. Definitely not something to be wasted on a Museum, thats for sure. Congrats and good luck my friend!
Thanks for sharing this with us, a real gem.
yes please tell us the price you seek for the whole kabit and kaboodle!
