How refreshing it is to have somebody inherit such items who has taken the time to explain a little bit about how he came into these items and about his fathers experience during the war (instead of just asking how much are they worth).
I wish you the best of luck with whatever it is you decide to do with all of this (I would keep it all but, then again, I collect this stuff).
If you do decide to part with it, I would definitely keep a few things to pass on to future generations of your family.
Best wishes and thanks so much for sharing your photos here.

Great to see fresh, clean, untouched, undealered, straight as a die "sleepers".
These type of items are worth "Top Dollar" purely for their untouched status !
Just a fantastic collection from Dachua. Items collectors dream about putting in their collection. Like mentioned before, your Father left you items that will bring in good amounts of cash for your family. Just remember your future generations because these item will just increase in price. Good luck with your decisions John and Congrats.

I shudder to think how full John's inbox must be about now...
Such a staggering collection of insignia! I am mind blown.
A collection like that, I would keep. But I'm a collector so of course I would think that. If you sold half of what you had there you would still be in a fortune. Maybe keep the best of the insignia and move on the rest if that's what you want to do.
I really enjoyed reading about your father.
Best regards, Patrick
THEN where would you wear it Glenn ........?????

Not so bad. Everyone is expressing their interest discreetly and gently.
I suppose I should say that if and when I do decide to sell, I will make sure the opportunity is democratic.
