Very great stuff fellas~
I must say, some of the bizarre pictures posted within this thread that have absolutely nothing to do with SS regalia is beyond me.
Please enlighten us mortals how pictures of chickens in a field - or images of some theme park at night has anything remotely to do with "Post your favourite SS item"? Sometimes it seems like Groundhog Day on this website. Pages upon pages seem to be flooded with nonsencicle images that have no bearing on the article(s) that are intended to the original post. If normality is to prevail here, then let's keep this a sane and reasonable forum.
Please, for the sake of this site to remain a "Beacon" of some sanity, please keep the posts relavent to the topic.
No offence intended to those that may take offence - but let's keep the photos and images to what the topic is about.
I have no dog in this fight, but I gladly take the odd non-thread related pic, as some of those who post these pics also contribute to this forum in a way, that its impossible to put a price on.
A few odd (sometimes even entertaining?) pics in exchange for priceless info and pics of rare items = heck, yes!
BTW As for relevant pics; the visor cap and sabre you posted above are simply fantastic. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Scout for your compliments on my small contribution. May I add this, I have a larger SS collection that I want to remain private - I will only contibute to threads that I think are topical to the subject being put forward. A perpetual wheel of images and items that have no bearing on the topic
that has been put forward, is not only confusing to the novice and advanced collector - but also makes the regular collector and enthusiest wonder ??
Please keep it simple guys- That way we ALL can learn.
And thanks for your balanced post, wolfslair.
I do not necessarily agree (at least not to the same degree), but hope that your dislike of certain pics will not deter you from posting further info and pics of those items, that you do choose to share.
BTW I fully understand and respect your wish to keep certain parts of your collection private. Though we would like to see it all, it is a sensitive subject, as we are constantly reminded by the ongoing debate and the occasionel posts on the morals involved which pop up on the forum.
