    Pammy, it seems to me that with ALL of the excellent EXPENSIVE militaria you have been showing since your first post, that keeping both together like I have suggested earlier in the thread, and that many others have suggested, should not be a big problem for you.

    You seem to be maybe a little confused about the framing of these nice "vet bringbacks" ? If the stories you have mentioned about the little old vet, and where, and when he obtained them in this bunker are true, then this information should be written, or typed on a piece of paper, and kept with the signs, inside of the frame. Otherwise the story will be lost to time like so many other objects we collect.

    As for frames, if you go to wal-mart and look at the many frames, you can get a couple, or one larger frame very, very cheaply. You just put them inside, hang on the wall and enjoy them.

    As for what something is worth on the collector market, I have found that things are actually worth...... what someone will pay you for it when you ready, and want to sell it. That is the "worth" of the signs. You can run a two week auction on Gunbroker, or another site, and see what people are willing to spend, or maybe you can list them here and see. If you run an auction listing, you can always set a reserve price of what YOU feel it is worth, and see what happens.
    Again, my personal opinion..... I would not break the pair up.

    Regards, Steve

    Hi Pammy, I would never call you a liar, I just meant that sometimes Old Vets, and Old People do not always remember correctly "exactly" the things that happened over 65 years ago. Sometimes they embellish the stories a little also. I too am disabled....semi disabled, and also live on a budget. Sometimes though I find things I have to get, and the credit cards start coming out

    This is fantastic that all these nice things are just coming your direction. By all means buy them if they are cheap, or under market value. Then you can decide to keep or sell it for a profit probably.
    I have found over the years of my collecting, that you must kind of "Focus" on things that really interest you, otherwise you may be able to see what can happen to your home. If you have a large home, (which I do not, just medium-small) you can collect more stuff until you run out of room!!!

    Keep up the good finds! Good luck!

    Regards, Steve

    hi,i sent out some e-mails to a few different high end dealers abappears that these Standarte must have been printed on a masonite board and possibly used to decorate the offices that fell within their colors. none has seen these before,as they do make them pretty valuble but to how much hard to say at the lest $200 each thats the lowest they would be worth but could go much much higher . .,just my opinon if the ss posters are bringing $600-$1200 and the stander flags up up up there$$ these should be in the $500-$1000 ..well its just what one wants to pay...i will have to go to one of the big military shows and bring these with me ...thanks guys i just got bored and thought i would jump on !!were are you at steven?nothing at the sale...

    They are worth quite alot, Pam, but go to any of the shows
    with the intention of finding the values only......

    Don't be too hasty !
