    Default Our past mistakes.....

    After countless times delivering the bad news to new collectors, we often tell them that we have all been there and got burned ourselsves in the past.

    Well I finally pulled out my mistakes and decided to take a quick picture as a reminder. They set me back quite a lot of money, especially for a new collector.

    So what do you have? Feel free to post them...doesn't have to be medals.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Years ago I heard a voice in my head say "RUN FORREST RUN!" But as momma said "A Stupid is A Stupid Does". Ahhhh! Youth. You think because you are full of piss and vinegar and have some experience that you are omniscient and cannot be damaged. My 2 Post War SS Novelty items for your enjoyment.

    I heat mine with a torch and beat them with a 3 pound hammer and toss them. That serves a dual purpose. It takes care of the urge to kill and destroys a fake.

    Nice Steve! so not photos for you to share I guess....LoL

    I use some of mine for uniform displays so they serve a purpose even though they are fake. I will electro pencil them one day to ensure that are not sold as fakes.
