No Adrian that was not the reason i sold it. I used to have three half size versions in gold but tought why not sell one to you. I still have two left.
I knew you was looking for one and it's in a good home now. With the money of the half size i bought myself the wehrmacht dagger
The thing i bought now isn't big time money but only the second one i ever seen. One is in a collection of a friend and the other one is on it's way. Small hint it's a paper piece
