    Better than Milch's baton...a British Brigadier General took it from him when he surrendered himself and beat him over the head with it until it broke in half. Then he robbed him blind of every valuable thing that he had...

    Most likely one of the Locos, they are getting banned- and reappear time after time after time.

    Like herpes.....
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    I once had a dog called Herpes, because he wouldn't heel either......

    Unfortunately, museums here in America will often sell items if they don't fit within their scope or if they're doubles of items they already have in the collection. It's unfortunate and not very respectable to sell donated items, in my opinion, but it happens often. I'm not sure if the same is true of Europe or other places, but it's probably universal.

    That said, I don't think that the Reichsmarschall's baton is going anywhere!
    That is very unfortunate. During the collapse of the Soviet Union, a lot of collectors from other countries used the opportunity to their advantage and bought priceless items with common goods. I always feel utter disgust towards people like that. In Finland our War Museum in Helsinki is government sponsored I believe and basically runs on donations and thankfully the items there are sacred and not going anywhere. During the war they would get stuff straight from the front-lines and from veterans as donations after the war. Sadly most of their items have to be kept in storage, so not many people get to see them.
