When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
And thats what i said several times, that i will do as everyone here says to do, believe the pics, never the story.
Cheers to all from a pub in London, all fitted out with WiFi in this modern age.
I could not have imagined this even 10 years ago.
do they still serve Whatney's Keg Red Barrel???
Only buy this material from a safe and sane source with all safeguards.
There are excellent reproductions of this material made in Europe that would fool certain collectors.
If something is too good to be true, it generally is in this game.
The absence of actionable photos would put me off very fast, indeed.
There are a small number of credible sources for this material, such that miracles are unlikely without considerable luck.
Also, I am very, very skeptical of tales as to this particular material being intact and present especially in Germany.
My comments are not directed against Germans, but are based on experience over a goodly span of time.

We were actually at the Connaught Bar in Carlos Place - do you know of it?
This site really does contain enough images of authentic pieces to get some orientation. But the truth is simple: you cannot collect authentic material based on electronic pictures alone. Nor can you often get lucky with this material, in fact, without a huge investment in time which is beyond most of us with real responsibilities in this peculiar century.
