    Thise is the most impressive and rare (!) one I have.
    It is a die of nearly 60 kilo's to make the crest of a Belgian prototype helmet, only used for less then one year by some foot regiments at the begine of WWI.
    It comes in two die's, one for every side, no male!
    Also got that one in a periode booklet.

    Great looking crest and rare die.
    More rare than a rare thing from planet Rare.

    I wonder if we can all put our money together to STOP IT???
    So no one can stamp anything, one person gets a male, and
    a different person gets a female..
    If your worried about stopping it, look at my post #13...
    I would be willing to put some twards the cause of prevention..

    Im so serious about this, that I am wiilling to put $100.00 US
    twards it...
    Anybody ellce?? Lets see how serious you are to PREVENT
    the contamination of our hobbie!!!!
    And if nothing gets done to prevent this, you cant cry about
    all the new pretty badges flooding the market...

    I'd put some towards it also. Can't go as deep as $1000 but I'll do what I can. Who gets the dies or do we split them among trusted forum members? How will that work?

    Helmetone,

    I thought I said $100.00 to start it off.. LOL
    Yes I would like to see one person get a female die, and someone else
    get a male die..
    I truly dont care who gets what die right now to be honest..
    I just want this prevented..

    I think we need to send our money to someone we can trust, and whom has an account with this auction house..
    Like Bob H.. Doug B.. Mr. Stonemiint.... BenVK.. Bob C..??
    Sorry to throw you under the bus guys...
    But we TRULY need to do something here...

    Well, there is nothing to do with these things when You do not have the right tools and skilled silversmiths who still know how to handle these tools. And if You think these are the only ones in the market... well, some very well made KC-s are coming from Latvia for example. And there was (and I belive still is) a small factory in Czech Republic what produces III Reich awards. With original machinery. So there is no point to buy this lot and to destroy it. I belive the final price will be really high (only making of 1 such matrix costs around 300-400 euros today) so if there are really 50 and more usable matrixes the price could be around 10 000 euro in the "right" hands.

    This really is a sad deal. Has anyone tried to contact them?

    Not saying they are or are not; original periode die's! But I think one should also consider that aspect!
