    Default My Tiny Collection :)

    Hey guys,

    So, I thought I would share my collection. Before you scroll down, let me warn you, its really only a couple pieces. One day I hope it will be like some of your guys's and girls collections! I'm 15, and I buy what I can with the money I have to spend. My mom took the camera to a "prince" concert the other day, and I have no idea where it went, so I am forced to use my laptop camera, so the pictures kinda suck. Ill get better ones soon!

    First up, is my P1907 wild tiger corps enfield bayonet, purchased by Siam in the 1920's I believe? Its got a little tiger face on it, and some siamese numbers. I found this one at a surplus store. I bought it since I also have a siamese rifle to go with it! The rifle is easier to take pics with a real camera, so more of that later.

    Next is another p1907, but this is 1918 dated and is Wilkinson mfg. Nothing special, but I like it.

    I also have this Bavarian Belt. I would probably say this is my favourite piece. It has the markings 2TB over 1900 on the leather, and some guys on the forum helped me id it as the second bavarian train battalion, date 1900. The buckle itself still has some nice green paint on it, and the tab is marked 1916 wurzberg. The cartridge loops are assumed to be a postwar add on.

    Next is a ww1 german ersatz bayonet. I found this one at a local antique store (same as the siam 1907) for $30. Nothing amazing, but I like it. Does anyone know what the markings mean?

    The last piece I will show is this pin my uncle gave me a few years ago. I think it is for a german veteran association. I think it might be fake though, Since all the ones I have seen have a differed back than mine. Help on this would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Prince is still touring? lol (nice bayonets and belt, by the way! And you're right-the loops are almost certainly added on, but it's is common to see this done) William

    Thanks Guys! Thats why I joined this forum, to have help and kind comments from people that know what they're talking about! I'll make sure to donate...when I get money hehe! I know, prince seems ancient to my generation! Although , I kinda need to apologize for what my generation did to music... I prefer the 'older' songs and bands! Ahh, getting off topic, oops! I'll try and get pictures of my rifle soon. My parents were going to get me a deact webley VI for christmas, but I can't get anymore since they just bought a car! Anyhow, Ill be sure to show anything I get for christmas!

    Matthewsq I dont think I would judge your veterans association badge a fake do to the odd backing these are uncommon but if it is the same as the example photo's they are referred to as a clipper backing and can be found on a few examples of pre war and Third Reich badges and tinnies that I have seen clearer and close up photos of the markings would help.
