  1. I believe this speaks for itself with address's
  2. Rich,it is just an envelope.I have a passion for Zeppelin items and bought it from a stamp collector at a good price
  3. Kevin ,thank you thank you thank you!
  4. This is interesting indeed!I have run across this and similar at the shows of late.With so much fake and altered stuff out there I have dismissed and ignored.Think I will pay a little closer attention next time.
  5. Little diddy I picked up last week.
  6. Rich,I saw you post referring to Life of Brian and dry British wit.Well sir,I love British comedy!This is one "yank" that prefers British television over the stuff being aired here in the US. No need to state that Monte python material is classic stuff yet still relevant and funny today.Now I must admit I am one of the lunatics who finds most of what Rowan Atkinson hilarious.I could recite over and over all the British programs and movies I like to watch,but I would say hands down,based on what I view repeatedly, Are You Being Served? is my favorite.
  7. Well sir, you did open that can of worms.....along with severe looks from my wife 😉 I binged on Brit comedies yesterday! Faulty Towers,Are You Being Served?,Grace and Favour,Mr Bean,Dad's Army,allo allo,Vicar of Dibley,Open all Hours,Steptoe and son, and of course Monty Pytons Flying Circus.It was a grand day and did not do chore one,hence the dirty looks from the wife.

    Grenze !

    So did you obey the sign? 😉 Awesome score Richard! I never had much interest in signs when I started collecting,wish I had now.
  9. Wow Richard Wow! Did I mention Wow?Fabulous find !Not intending to be maudlin, the true love of a woman for a man warms the heart.Sadly not an isolated case,I have a similar letter of a woman requesting to be by her wounded soldier husband.This may have been more predominate than we may know.

    Bits of stick grenade 24

    Quite simply rusty gold.
  11. This is a very interesting read Kevin,one man's journey as the research unfolds the story.I sometimes question if I collect for the history of a certain period or the quest for the rest of the story.thanks for bumping this up.
  12. Bumping this,as I have read through past threads all are of interest,some though are WOW! This is absolutely stunning. Just make the mouth water!

    KVK spanish version

    Anyone seen a Blue Division KVK for sale out there? I have 2 holes in my KVK set need that and Knights Cross of the KVK with swords.
  14. Ladies and gents,a bank note from my collection,if you look at the front of this bank note it seems there is a hard working German citizen.Now dear reader,lean your head to the right.....you will see the engraver added a Vampire sucking the life's blood of this German citizen,his entire neck is the Vampire.The history of this particular note is that it was made to give comment on the reperation payments Germany was responsible for.

    Brexit Impact, if any?

    Well said Rich,I have tried to follow this over here on this side of the pond,because it will affect the world.I am reminded of something Will Rogers said....."Common sense is not an issue in politics,it's an affliction. Neither is honesty,honesty is not an issue in politics,it's a miracle."
  17. Apollo 11 launched 50 years ago this date.Project Apollo was the beginning of mankind's greatest adventure.I was 11 years old and had been following the US space program obsessively.I am proud to be of the generation that witnessed the moon landings....still gives me chills.Like most of us here I was born with a genetic flaw of collecting stuff.So in commemoration of the Apollo 11 launch a couple of my space goodies.

    50 years ago.......

    Rich,that would be an amazing thing but it will be a robot if we do.Apollo was just getting really efficient and precise when the project was cancelled.A horrible horrible mistake by this country!So much we have today is a direct result of the Apollo program. Politicians got involved ..... need I say more?

    50 years ago.......

    Sorry did not include that the patch is a period patch I bought from them in 1969,collected a sack of soda pop bottles to pay for it.The Buzz Aldrin autograph I got in person at a lecture he gave at the college I was attending at the time.

    Welcome John,looking forward to your post.
  21. Was not sure where to post this,I just saw Weitze most recent update.....made me slobber and pant,wow some rare items listed.So much so I am going to talk to my banker on Monday because if I can I am going to own the German Order Cross 1st class with swords he listed.

    Helmut Weitze update

    All said and done,this is a case of know what your buying and I don't except for the scant information that is agreed on by all.After talking to the folks at both sites,I have been left with apprehension and am going to trust my gut.Thank you Rich for your feed back....it is appreciated.

    Helmut Weitze update

    Rich,I have not contacted them as yet, would really like the neck order even if it is a period museum display.The eagles are worrisome on this one,the heads are a bit off to me.

    Helmut Weitze update

    Rich,thanks for your continued input.I have had the site you posted bookmarked for a while....but you know what?It never occurred to me to get an opinion as you have suggested,many thanks for that suggestion.
