    Default finds of the day

    when you least expect it; you happen to find IT!
    Very thrilled about what I found today.
    I had to go to a place for a photo shoot for some restoration technics for a magazine. We spoke about thise and that and thise is what the guy came up with.
    Since 1910, 3 generations of thise guy's ancestors were in the Belgian police force and all became Commissaire (head of the locale police), and he still had theyre hats.
    And even some TR regalia.
    Got it all for 300 €;... a bargain!!

    Thanks.
    here are better pics of the miniature daggers.
    Don't know what it is with the KM dagger; it seems it never had a swas, could it be post war..?

    The cutlass (briquet) is remarquable as well.
    It is dated 1832 and bares also a mark "GP" that means Gouvernement Provisoire, that is the periode when Belgium was waiting to have a king appointed.
    I guess it must be rare as well.
    It was hanging outside and used for gardening....
