I liked your business on FB! Cheers, Robert
Thank you so much, everyone!
No way...I'm not buying it! That's a Woman! lol No guy is going to hold the Other guy's Hand and pose for a photo!(and look how Small that hand is!) Just from the stance, the way with the arm around the guy's waist, the little face and the grin on it, the eyes....If that isn't a woman....well....uuh...I still think it is! lol And can you just imagine the story behind That photo,hey?

I just stumbled across this thread, its mad crazy that you are this lucky to find those things. I have seen magazines like the ones you posted a while back in an antique mall, the prices are listed from each individual selling, and i think the guy wanted like 40 each, and you end up getting them for free, wow. that just makes you hope that when ever you have passed someone will take the time and look through your things to see if there is anything worth while and not just toss them away, at least i do.
Thanks for the kind responses, everyone!
I haven't had the opportunity to use this stuff in the classroom this year, but I'm chomping at the bit to do so! I had a special ed teacher approach me recently to team teach his 8-1-2 classroom (8 students, 1 teacher, 2 teacher aides)... this kids are tough nuts to crack. A lot of them have learning disabilities, and most of them have been in MAJOR trouble, both with the law and in school... We're hoping that bringing in hands-on stuff will help them open up a little bit and enjoy school for once!
They have been talking about WWII in class, and just finished reading Night by Elie Wiesel, so a lot of the stuff I have will fit right in.
Joe, you really do worry me by letting these students "play" with your collection, it only needs one to drop or mis-handle something and youve got a problem, especially if they put the helmets on their heads, the liners are not new anymore and can get easily damaged by being "stressed" or if someone bangs the helmets whilst being worn to see if they can feel the impact etc, i commend you for bringing history to life with the younger generation, but with me it would be a look and feel but not wear policy
In a related topic, this SD M42 SS was found in a rubbish skip, before being sold to a local dealer, from whom I purchased it. No longer in my collection, now owned by Dave, a member here.
Regards and good luck with finding more items.
Whatever its just an opinion.
