    Default My 1st year in review

    I just wanted to take some time to express my gratitude to the moderators, administrator, and members of this forum on this the 1st anniversary of my joining. Without you all I wouldn't have the collection that I do nor the confidence to pursue it.
    There are too many of you to list who have helped in the education I have received and continue to receive. From the guys I talk to on a regular basis down to the people who never knew I was learning from their purchases I thank you.

    In one year I have learned not to buy things such as this.....

    Thank you guys again for a wonderful year!!

    Gunny thanks for the laughs. Fallschirmjager, thanks for breaking it to me gently that my helmet was a fake.

    With a bit of effort & research (that you've put in). It's a pleasure to see someone with a genuine interest. Rather than the all too common "how much is it worth" carry on. Stewy

    Unfortunately that was my first mistake.. I remember my first post was about a luftwaffe dagger that I wanted to buy but didn't have a clue about how much it was worth. Internet examples can only take you so far. First of all was it real? Then there are condition factors. So yes I admit I did ask a dollar amount my first thread but not since after learning the rules. Thank you to Ade for the warm welcome on that first post by the way. It took me all of 15 minutes from discovery to becoming a club member.

    Thanks to CBH I have learned a lot from your posts. To HPL2008, much appreciation for your wisdom and the translation of my feldposts.

    Thank you very much rbminis. I have been a fly on the wall on your posts and have learned much.
