    A nice tunic. It is indeed crazy what people throw away, but nothing surprises me any more. I have a friend who works on the local tip, and the collectable (and valuable)items he brings home is astonishing.

    100 years old, and some dolt throws it into the trash dump....just disgusting, especially considering the History this tunic must have witnessed....am glad it was snatched from the jaws of Oblivion at the last moment. Well done.
