Where on earth do you chaps get these partners, all i get is socks, jumpers and track suits, oh and the odd "not another bit of old tat" , after 36yrs of marriage you would think that the old dutch would get it by now, the only piece of militaria she has ever liked has been the Gold Mothers Cross that i bought, and that was really for her because she thought she deserved it !!!!!!
Dave, all I get from my wife about my collection is the "evil eye" everytime a new package or item just "shows" up without explanation.
I have had a couple items from my wife over the last few years, all good thankfully and they were items I had seen and commented on to her, though what impressed me the most was she bought them in Britain and had the dealer ship them to her office in Holland to give to me months later, all without my knowing.
shame about the duff helmet, hopefully she can return it?
Whatever its just an opinion.
My girlfriend got me a fixed bale M1 for what I think was my 17th birthday. I decided that I was in love. haha
Sorry guy, the helmet is bad.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
They have produced more fake SS lids than the Third Reich have produced real ones.
Yes Dan a fake Pocher like you said! Also fake wire and looks like the liner is bogus to me too. 1500 GBP so about $2200 US. 4 times that much Frank? There is one (only a real one, wired SS) for sale behind the scenes, asking price is $30,000 US.....I passed....I think Oakleaf bought the EF in rough condition that was posted here by the owner years ago and is asking $12k or $10k or something like that.
