Thanks you Friedrich for all of the information you have supplied. It has been very helpful. Which auction was it that Herman Historica sold the collar tab in?
Alright, thanks. I will take a look through there previous auction catalogs.
yea, i have no idea why someone would ever remove an RZM tag, unless it fell off??? guessing that would be unlikely though.
The collar tab without the dressed up Paspel and with the tag was perfectly alright for a collector who knows his stuff.
That collector is a person who uses our site and who learned the ins and outs of this complicated regalia.
The alternative is disappointment and public humiliation in the slaughter house of militaria high jinx in the digital age.
There are a handful of sources for good material of this type, and I would stick to them and forget the quick and easy venues.
Or go to the US military shows, if you live in Texas, as this material is more plentiful there.
Old junk, numero II
I try to leave the junk more or less in the state I find it, with some few exceptions where I undo willful damage or restore a missing cuff title or something.
But not very often, mind you.
I got this tab at the recent MAX show. And have been attending the MAX and the SOS for about 3 years now.
