[QUOTE=Friedrich-Berthold; Much heartache and time wasted on same.[/QUOTE]
I can relate to that.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
But the decades that have gone into all of this have some merit, if someone else can profit from same. I am not always sure about such profit, though. A fine thing that the "sculls" can safely graze in their own pasture now.....a real step forward.
I only have three these days, but I never had a lot, mostly too expensive and/or too well faked, also not really my area or interest, though they are of course very interesting and desirable and if money was no object I would have more.
Whatever its just an opinion.
