    Me? No not a dealer, i think a hobby that becomes a job will soon lose its shine. Nah, i work in business development and project management.

    [QUOTE=Glenn66;229080]I had a good collecting weekend the last 2 days, I didn't plan it to be this way...it just happened!

    We in Qatar have our weekend on the Friday and Saturday so as most do I was enjoying a few relaxing adult beverages on Thursday night when I saw the 8pm Military Antiques of Stockholm update was about to land. Mind you, 8pm in Stockholm is 10pm in Qatar so I was already 3 sheets to the wind when the hour of 10 o'clock struck and the excitement of new TR memorabilia took over...

    I mean, it's not such a big deal is it? You click on a box, key in some numbers and viola! you own a lovely piece of history!

    The website was slow to respond "must be all those other collectors hogging the bandwidth" I thought, which only increased the feeling of competition and excitement. Got to beat the other guys to those minty medals/badges!

    So first is this MM30 GWB, I've been looking for one in this condition for ages and I don't think I even checked the price before 'adding to cart'

    Then a nice Frank and Reif Panzerkampf Abzeichen caught my eye. I wasn't really looking for a zinker but it was so pretty and shiny that just like a Magpie bringing trinkets back to it's nest, I just had to have it! Click! 'add to cart'!

    This was going so well that I quickly poured another Bourbon and checked through the rest of the new items. There were 4 NSDAP party badges that caught my eye, some were already 'on hold' which only added to the tension, as soon as I had opened the gallery to review the item it too would be on hold and another would become available as guys were adding them to their carts and then deleting once they'd changed their minds. Luckily the M1/13 I liked the most and which was originally on hold became free again so 'click'! 'add to cart!

    Attachment 174840

    The adrenaline and alcohol were forming a dangerous cocktail of 'what the hell, lets go for it' so I then flicked over to the 'Great Militaria' site where there was a beautiful BH Mayer bronze Panzerkampf Abzeichen that I had been earlier eyeing off but had dismissed as 'too expensive'. In the euphoria of the moment it too was quickly added to cart and is now on it's way to my nest!

    Attachment 174842

    I don't know what it all cost really (I don't want to look) all I know is the credit card has a good sized hole in it now and i'm promising myself NOT to buy anymore militaria at least until these have arrived and this months paycheck has been deposited...but of course if a minty EK1 should happen to wander by....

    Surely drugs must be less addictive than this hobby?

    Glenn[/QUOTE

    Amen...That's the story of my life..a bourbon and adrenalin fueled TR hunt! (when I can afford and my wife doesn't know, that is.) I love your new finds, my friend. did you see the new panzer beret my buddy gave me?heehee.. I feel like a little school girl! Tee hee!! *prances around with beret on head*
