    Hang onto them until November then either consign 'em or put the lot up for sale yourself, they'll go in no time and make for a real nice Christmas bonus!!

    Jingle balls, Ned.

    For me these are fantasy items. I do not believe in them or the story of topic starter.

    Look beyond your first reaction of "cool":
    Fresh boxes, fresh straw. Why Always the SS balls? (money!). No ageing of box or balls.
    Would you believe AH allowed his head hanging in a tree, let alone looking like that?!
    These pop up everywhere the last 5+ years.

    I've felt very dubious about these sorts of things ever since I first saw them. They often appear in new condition and with the original box with fresh-looking straw. Like you say, why SS? If they were made very early, why not SA? If they were made late, would this company have been allowed to produce baubles bearing the SS runes? These don't seem right at all.

    I still have no problem with them, each to their own. Regarding the preservation, 'in new condition', 'fresh boxes', 'fresh straw', well why not? The ornaments only come out of the trunk/case in the attic once a year to be hung on a tree for a couple of weeks and then they go back. And for how many years were these actually used five, ten, less?? Look at the number of stonemint TR items we see on here every week. Daggers, EK's, caps, medals, badges etc., etc. You don't question them.

    Just a point regarding the 'straw'. It's not straw it's wood shavings, and i've torn enough old furniture apart from the Victorian era to the 1960's that is stuffed with these kind of shavings as padding that's as good as the day it went in and still smells of fresh timber, the same goes for horsehair.

    So, why you do make valid points, there are others too that bear thinking about guys. As for the veracity of them being allowed to be produced, there was a period before these kitsch items and many others were made illegal and banned by the National Socialist authorities when they flourished, as was only mentioned here recently by Jo Rivett in an interesting thread that caused similar arguments.

    I like 'em, you dont. I'm sure there is proof one way or another if it is looked for carefully.

    I agree with Ned. How many of us have decades old boxes of baubles passed down over the years in the loft? I have some from at least the 70's still in their original boxes in as new condition.
