    Default The lost collection - gone but not forgotten

    Back in the early 1980's i started to collect German WW2 items - a bit of whatever was available. By 1990 fate dealt a hand that forced me to sell it all ( except one lone EK2 that I hung doggedly onto )

    Fast forward to 2009 when a man faced with turning 50 finally had some disposable assets and was able to rekindle the flame - which for the last 2 years I have been doing with a vengeance.

    BUT, what's gone is gone - here are some images of those long sold items ( grainy but that was an Instamatic camera in 1982 )
    ahh...... memories.

    Wish I still had the SD M40 KM - it was a beaudy!!!!!

    Cheers, Dan

    I am sure most of us have had to part with some great items over the years, either to pay the bills or to fund another purchase or whatever reason, I know I have and some of it I would really liked to have kept, but, hey that's the way it goes sometimes.

    I'll post some of my ex items if your interested mate, though a lot of it I only have crappy pics or no pics at all.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Wow Dan, it looks like you had some terrific gear, I love the SA dagger and in particular the MP40 pouches, they're worth a small fortune now!
