    Default Some photos of my (very) small collection

    At the behest of another forum member, I'm posting a few photos of my very small and newly minted displayable collection. I've been reading about and studying Third Reich-era objects for some time, but I only recently (within the last six months or so) started actually collecting. Right now, my main focus is on belt buckles and small pins and badges. I also collect awards and cloth, but only when I come upon good deals. There is nothing much special here, but I hope to expand little by little as time goes by.

    Sorry about the poor photos. The glass-top Riker cases are a bit hard to photograph because of the glare. In order to put them on the wall, I installed some makeshift hangers made with wire coat hangers. I made the helmet stand with a furniture leg and a section of 2x4. There is a bit of gerrymandering (in this case, I guess you could call it 'Jerry-mandering') going on here.

    Great start here, Erno. Nice collection and display. I had a few bring backs from my father but only started adding to those in the last year.

    Thanks, seventyeighth! I don't have any family bring backs, but I got spurred to collect when a local auction house held a militaria auction last year. Since then, I've been reading all I could find online. It's a lot of fun to spot the real and fake.

    Great collection and it's coming along nicely! I especially like the belt buckles and the helmet.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks, guys! I will use this thread to post periodic updates. I will soon need a new Riker case for my buckle collection.

    Very nice, Erno. We all started with one item, and you have that beat! As long as it's authentic, that's all that matters.

    What are those little round things with hakenkreuz in the middle? They look great!
