    Nice medal grouping you did well when I first started collecting TR items I made two very big mistakes the first was making blind purchases with out researching the items that I bought which cost me out of pocket.
    The second MISTAKE which still haunts me to this day was I told my wife .

    Thanks for comment Mark. I think none of us are free of your second mistake, but I'm trying to manage her anger making up the prices. It's working until now. " How much all these medals cost?" was the first question and I answer " It's cheap, nobody gives too much value to these old things. Each medal costs about 25 USD"

    yeah, tried that - it doesn't work :-)
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Man, I must have one of the coolest chick in the world. Never has busted my balls over my collection. She recently went to a garage sale and picked up a 90MM anti-tank casing. When she brought it home she already had found the date before buying it. Its from 1944! I was like, WoW! Now if she can just find me some U.S. Paratrooper Boots (preferably 1943-45)... LOL. That bird of mine has me deadbang!

    Never ever tell your wife!!!

    Thats the first rule of militaria collecting or any other hobby that involves spending money that might otherwise be used to buy curtains, soft furnishings, kitchen equipment or paint for decorating!!!

    You need to get in the habit of saying "what, this old thing? I've had it for ages....."

    Wise words Adrian !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
