    Yo Garvy!

    Many thanks for showing off more of the cool stuff in your clutches.

    You are truly a collector to be admired.

    It would be cool if more ODM collectors and gurus would show more of their stuff and create intellectually stimulating conversation here. The inventory contained therein and the smell of mildew & stale cigarette smoke (The latter for which I am not responsible for BTW) ) that permeates my vintage Soviet cotton and woolen textiles vault has become complacent...

    And BTW; g^ %*(( (^&31?<f

    Why thank you, Reechard. . .

    That's the nice thing about ODM's, no stale cigarette smoke or mildew, just patination. . .

    I'll dig up some more stuff to post. Not sure if people realize the time and effort it takes to post, and then no one responds good, bad, or indifferent. Regardless, I really enjoy this stuff and appreciate your support and guidance. . .

    While you're at it, E** m*. . .

    Bill, nice star! Why are you surprised he wasn't given a duplicate?

    Thank you, Auke!

    Perhaps I should have rephrased it. I wonder why he was given a new Red Star instead of a duplicate. I had not seen such circumstances before. Do you have any thoughts you'd be willing to share?

    I see now. I guess in the field it was more convenient to just give him another RS instead of an official duplicate that had to come from the mint. It's strange though that he lost RS nr. 580939 and was then given a lower numbered RS (nr. 517416) as a replacement.

    That, and I am wondering how the Red Star came to be "lost". I would have hypothesized that if he had lost it, he would have been given a duplicate. It's a mystery.
