    Hello everybody

    I want to know if somebody is interested in a Montecassino Cross that was awarded to my father. He was lieutenant in the 5th Kresowa Infantry Division, 2nd Polish Corps in the Italian Campaign, and was a survivor of the concentration camps of Kozielsk and Griazowiec in Russia.
    Many thanks

    I am interested - but don't sell it - keep it - it is a one of a kind item ! He was probably from Kresy, ended up in Kozielsk only to move on with 2nd Corps - it is Polish history keep it or donate it to a museum !
    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,

    Hello enesalpa,
    I echo meyle77 as a collector I am also interested in the cross the document and it's history. However, this award with the document are part of your family history and I hope you don't need to part with it. Please keep in mind that Many collectors like myself would love to have it but once you sell it there are small chances of getting it back.

    It's always great to see personal/family items.

    Document the oral history and pass it all
    down to your children or another
    close relative..........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Times 3. This is family. It should stay there.

    But... (and I am NOT recommending this) if it is your wish to move it, a local museum that has a need for it would be a good place (large museums typically would put this in a store room). And if you really do want to sell it (it's yours so all we can do is offer advice) try to make sure it goes to someone who will care for it and it's history in order to honor your father.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    But ahead of listing . . . it's very unfortunate that you need to sell this piece of your family history. A word of warning is that it's not uncommon to come to regret this decision. Also, you may face some heat from family members / offspring should they develop an interest in their family history and find that you were the one responsible for releasing this from family possession. Perhaps first check within your family for someone who may wish to purchase this set.
