    How is this one for value: I will share more in due time when I am able. Been collecting for over 25+ years. Took time away for about 6 years. Got rusty. Traded some militaria to another entity for a kriegs 1st model. Gerrit, Larry and Danny (Krieg-a-saurus) spotted it was a sketchy fake that fooled me and others. I had a non authentic piece in my collection for 6 years and would have never, ever known it without these 3 brothers helping identify it....When you think $25 is too much...think again my bruthas and sistas in the hobby. You are never too old to learn and when you think you have a good handle on this ever changing hobby study more and trust your fellow collectors on here. They care and are guardians of each other and the collector community for the future generations.

    So there is a real testimony from a veteran collector who does not know it all and learned just recently. Since this was found I recouped my $2500 and have taken care of the fake in my collection. What is the ROI on the Forum...Priceless!

    I am in sales for my career...This is no pitch however! Ade and others you are to be commended for assembling the best forum and cast out there.

    My story is long but say until 4 months ago I was bordering on selling it all off. I did my website to honor my grandfather and then was going to sell it all. I can take no credit. Credit goes to Gerrit & Larry for encouraging me to stay in and not leave this great hobby. I admit I was tired and burned out since age 15. When my buddy Opa died I kind of quit. I must say many of the people on this forum I saw going above and beyond to help each other. The tireless pursuit for truth at times and regard for each other really has rekindled me. So thank you forum members and you know who you are for propping me up and brushing me off. Got some wind in the sails again. I am humbled!

    Hi Luke...Yes I had them up and took them down. I have them and will be working with Danny to discuss it in the Kriegsmarine Dagger Forum Ade and Larry started. Good learning opportunity on this one for all levels of collectors. I will be in touch.
