Seems like rather a lot to me, Patrick.
I'd be wary of the postcard as that'd be so easy to fake.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

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

Doesn't look like a good deal to me, friend...this appears too dubious and not worth 75Euros at all...I'm positive that you can do better elsewhere...
Thanks for the information and advice gents. I asked for more photos but I dont think I will accept the offer.
Best regards, Patrick
Nice but rather common ribbon bar of Austrian WW1 veteran.
75 euros for this bar + couple of papers is at least twice as much.
