My incredibly modest SS collection

Article about: If it was she'd be worth \\$10000+ and wouldn't be in my collection that's for sure!

    Hope your job situation has improved/will improve.
    For one who has reluctantly 'joined the dark side' and started collecting SS relics, I think you did pretty well.
    As others have mentioned, you are far too modest.
    Thanks for the kind words...ummm...'Scout'?

    No the job situation hasn't improved, 6 months unemployed and the best I've got is some free-lance work on commission base only.

    Never mind, I have some nice SS relics to keep me warm and fed!

    great items.hope i find so cheap ss item one day
    Sorry herrzark, these SS items are not so cheap. I would say these items are often the same price as minty fresh examples found from warehouses because these pieces have real history and real sweat is also spent when digging for them on the old battlefields. Then there is the problem of getting them out of Russia past the customs people.

    Good luck in your search for your SS items!

    Mystery item #2: early type SS enameled ring

    Here's a little cutie found on the HKL (main defense line) of 6.Rgt SS-TV in North Karelia. I've read somewhere that these early type rings (sometimes referred to as the '1st type') date from the late twenties so if that's correct, the owner must have been a very early SS member which might explain the path taken into the Totenkopfverbände and from there via the camp system into the combat formation of the 6th Standarte.

    Whether this ring is correctly called an 'SS' ring or was merely a barracks canteen purchase I don't know but it certainly saw service with the SS and that makes it a prime piece for an SS collection in my book.

    I hope you like it!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Cheers guys! I collect this stuff to make you happy you know!

    Paul, you wouldn't have any images or documentation regarding those early catalogues would you? I'd love to get some additional 'provenance' on file.
