This is my collection so far
The first thing I bought was the ppsh-41, made in 1944. It is completely disabled since it's required by law. The magazine is hard to pull out and place back and and the front sight is off center. I payed about about $200-$300 for it if I remember correctly, I asked about it on another forum and I was told that it was a good and fair purchase. Any input from someone who knows would be nice
The book (Norwegian volunteers in Waffen-SS) is not really a part of the collection but I though I'd show it of anyway. I picked up from a book store earlier this year. It's a great read and has a total of 540 pages with lots and lots of never seen before pictures from the eastern front, combat and training performed here and other places were Norwegian volunteers were present.
The coins I got from my older brother as a gift for my birthday. They were locked away in a box until I bought these cheap "floating" displays on ebay. If I'm not mistaken the larger coins are from the Soviet Union and are 1 ruble each, however these weren't made until 1975 while celebrating the 30th anniversity of their victory againt Germany on the eastern front, so the coins aren't really from the WW2 era. The 2 smaller coins in the same display are 5 "reichspfennig" both made in 1940. They seem to have some sort of grey "oxidation" on the surface which makes it hard to see the details. I'm not sure if this is something I can remove and I'm too scared I might ruin the coin if I try something without really knowing what I'm doing
The medal is just a black wound badge that I bought from greatmilitaria.com. It hasn't been owned or used so it's in perfect condition. I'm planning on getting both silver and gold wound badge sometime later
I also have a large reprint of a SS propoganda poster next to my collection
Any thoughs and tips will be greatly appreciated
