militaria items you don't fancy and would never have in your collection

Article about: by ToxicGas I meant to add that to my list! I never understood the point in 'De-Nazifying' objects that no longer serve a post-war purpose... if you're going to destroy it, why not just thro

    They are your favorites because you collect EKs
    If you collected tunics would you really prefer them to be mint, which would mean that it would be an extra piece hanging in a closet throughout the war?

    US WWII items, there's just no appeal. I have my grandfathers uniform items that he kept, but that's all I really care to have. German uniforms and medals are much more attractive and have a sort of "artistic" nature to them.

    I understand that mint items have much higher market value but I personally just prefer items with history behind them - for example award groups with documents, photos etc.

    Medals and awards in general, apart from the few family ones I have or examples that are part of a grouping. I try to educate myself about the subject of course, but owning them just has no interest for me whatsoever. Most allied ones are post-war made anyway, so they are pretty much 'anecdotal', and German awards are, for the most part, just plain ugly

    I am very picky when it comes to ww2 militaria compared to ww1 militaria. I dont like Helmets or fieldgear.

    Best regards,
