    A late birthday present from my family in Poland, A family heirloom from my great grandfather.

    A German Horseshoe Leather Greatcoat he took from a German Officer during the Warsaw Uprising.

    Story is (From what I've been told, so take it with a grain of salt) That my Great Grandfather came across 2 German officers in a back alley, Fortunately they were unarmed. he took them back to a polish controlled area so they could taken in. Once he arrived at the polish zone he took the coat from one of the officers and the rest is history.

    What a great piece of family history!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
