SS Ringman you hit nail on head. I too am an old collector back in 92/93 I sold everything in a fit of rage after my wife leave me. Why because I feel German militaria will not keep me in food, a roof over my head or help me live longer. I had some nice stuff then as it was cheaper to buy. A few years ago I see a german helmet at an antique fair I buy and now I am back spending money on stuff that after 5 minutes I put away and never look at. I have Sa Daggers I have not seen for 6 months. But to pay $5000 for 1 dagger even a SS would make me happy for maybe 10 minutes, do others feel the same. Its like an addiction now I must go to look for my next fix.
cheers to all Robert
