Cat fish and cap badge madness.
Items misidentified as SS cap badge.
Remains of Nazi Officer Discovered inside 100-Year Old Giant Catfish – World News Daily Report
Whacky story is par for the course.
Since the gold train in Silesia is in the news, one also has a Nazi eaten by a very senior cat fish in the Oder.
Seems to me lifted from the other militaria site, but that's me.

Maybe I should sell my collection and devote myself to Florence in the Renaissance.

Quite a funny read. Pray tell, how can they can state that they know the bones have been inside for 75 years when they can't even perform a DNA test due to the gastric acid? ... And that is assuming they really were inside to begin with. I'm sure if I had that eagle in my stomach for all that time it wouldn't look like it was made yesterday. I won't even go in to the whole SS thing.
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
"Don't tell me these are investments if you never intend to sell anything" (Quote: Wife)
This sort of thing fulfills the same need we have to collect, but these people do not correctly get the facts.
In any case, my collection has merit of some kind and the search for the facts about these things may some utility, too.
I find human irrationality to be an endless source of mirth.

Sounds a bit fishy to me........
The veteran's badge survives in pristine condition yet the veteran is dissolved ......h'mm?

" When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle "
That it may be, but it also recalls the mood of Grass' breakthrough novel of 1959 in certain ways.

The role of allegory deserves a certain pride of place in this pursuit.
or, as the Brothers Grimm remind us, the recumbent Staufer king will stir from his slumber beneath the mountain when the moment has arrived.
A truly spectacular piece of Anglerlatein, methinks.
Third Reich items were made to last a thousand years, you know.
