    So much truth in that statement.


    Its the collecting, and this web site, that helps me cope everyday, when i start having some problems, i get on here, as its helps me to get my mind off the crap.

    They say i need a hobby, and i cannot think of a better hobby, then collecting these items...

    Dear Brian, thanks and I am happy that my ranting and raving as well as the handful of images I have are of service to you. In fact, were it not for your signal agency, I would have left this site in disgust for various reasons wholly unconnected to you. My point was that, in order to collect SS stuff, you have to put up with an enormous amount of guff and nonsense, but we are all eager, Brian, to help you and your collection as much as we possibly can. My statement concerned the collector-tope and its odd denizens, but tribute of a different kind is what you and the combat soldiers of all nations and all times have paid in the most significant way. I remain deeply grateful to you for this service on the front line of the most difficult kind and for reminding me that I can foster your peace of being and sound body through this odd and to me, at least, frustrating medium.

    We are grateful you join us here and honor us with your presence. German militaria is a way to expand one's horizons, to know more, to struggle to understand complex and compelling events in the past, and even to have some good company along with all the nonsense and petty larcenies encountered along the way.
    damit, basta.

    Yes, Im glad you did stay as, i remember the reasons why you almost left, you had that dillweed run off at the mouth, talking crap, and didnt have a clue as to what he was talking about.

    Its some people that get so jealous, of your collection, all they can do is trash talk, knowing they probably will never have such a superb, and fine collection as yours.

    And, thank you for the kind words, as i do look forward to seeing the tunics you post for us all to see.

    Brian

    Dear Brian, the time for these things to change hands is drawing near. They do not interest me as much as they do some of you, any more. There are many collections, I think, that will presently go to the seven winds, especially if the world continues to spin off its axis. Thanks, and my picture show was for your morale and not as some wrong headed display of things. My colleagues Hritz and Coleman, who have far larger collections than do I, or David Delich (my good friend and compatriot in the struggle for knowledge) have much, much, much better things than I have shown here, as do the unknown collectors who live off the grid, and who would likely astound us with their treasures. I am simply sick of all the fakes and the stupid commentary that suffocates us along with them.

    I'm not sure if this is even a hobby for me anymore. Each item I hold leads to another. Which leads to a book, then another book. Then a memoir, then some researched histories, which leads to another item...

    I was always a history freak but it never lived for me until I collected. I believe WWII is THE defining event since the industrial revolution. And the Germans were the prime movers, and the SS represented the tip of the spear both in mindset and their work downrange.

    Be patient collecting. When you find the right piece, you'll know. You'll lose sleep. It will haunt you. And when you finally got it in hand and it's yours... man, it's priceless.

    And regarding your earlier post about the look of the uniforms. I don't know if you've handled a black rock in person yet, but when you see the blackness of that wool and the detail, it's something else.

    When the day comes in the future, you are ready to pass them on, and please let me know on a price, for what you want for your collection, as i would be VERY interested in all of itl.

    Thanks and I appreciate your kind interest. Where are these men and with them, their black suits?

    I have never seen a black uniform from a Berlin Allgemeine SS unit.

    Yes, when i was down at Ft. Benning, going through for medical treatment, i made friends with one of the guys that ran the museum there, and he showed me some items that was brought back by GI's, and alot of stuff that was collected on orders, as the command back here in the states need/wanted items , and their was a lot of Allgemeine SS tunics, and alot of Dachau tunics also, and plenty of SS daggers, and swords.

    He told me, that in the near future, that some of the items were to be sold off, and he said he would let me know when that day came.

    I have also been fortunate to hold one years ago, and yes, the feel of it, the quality, the smell, was beyond words could express.
