Guys,

As stated above, this cost me a bit too much but you don't see them every day! These are the interesting bits from the group, he just had his cover from the SB so perhaps they tried to demobilise the unit as he had his WP? Whoo knows?

Nice little set and with a desirable citation. Just out of curiosity, how big is the Traditionsabzeichen citation? I have always thought it was a small size but it looks like a normal A5 size from the size of the stamp.I would imagine that the addition of the Nahkampftage list would really appeal to the collector of the Italian theater.

Yep, A5, normal certificate size but of thicker courser paper, it has a bit of obvious water damage as does the WP front pages.

I will put it all up whan I get time.

This group is causing me a drama. I paid what my pal asked after he determinded the price and then he got a better offer after I bought it?

I doubt the person making the offer would actually have paid what they stated however. Just out to cause trouble! Sour grapes!

As long as you were happy to pay it then its no drama. The drama belongs to the previous owner and the potential trouble maker, and it is something that happens more often than you think.

There certainly does seem to be an increase of people coming in to the hobby just for the money, or collectors becoming purely dealers once they make a few £££.

Here is such a document I have. Also the paper is very thick.

With my group came a short explanation. Apparently many of those soldiers destroyed their soldbücher because they were affraid to be caught by partisanen. Perhaps later when their unit was dissolved in relatively good order they got their wehrpässe and already knew that there was not much danger so they kept them.

Was your guy a PAK gunner? That was an important and interesting job at the same time but for some reason a bit overlooked by collectors.
