    Very interesting design and patterns.
  2. There are more uniforms than demand at the moment. These are great originals.
  3. Wow. He must've screwed up big-time to be sent to a LWFD at his age and lack of infantry experience. I doubt he would've been immediately put in charge of a Battalion like that, would he? Was he demoted? Are his officer evaluations included in those documents?
  4. This has to be one of your more impressive sets! Congratulations on this virtual time capsule. It seems as if you have the man's entire military career in that box.
  5. They did a great job at carefully removing the offending emblem.
  6. What era do you think it was made? Turn of the 20th century?
  7. Cool. I cant wait to see them. It looks like a beautiful example.
  8. Thank you for sharing these beautiful awards with us!!
  9. I am so sorry to make you wait so long. Thank you. Here is the front. I am not home, so I found an original reverse to show you what it's like.
  10. Consider it moved. Thank you for posting this interesting tile!
  11. Congratulations on scoring this really cool lot. When you get around to it, we'd love to see some of the highlights.

Here are a couple, but bear in mind that they are priced with accessories included, as pictured. https://therupturedduck.com/collections/edged-blades/products/model-36-german-ss-chain-dagger-1?variant=12092592455753 and https://therupturedduck.com/collections/edged-blades/products/model-36-german-ss-chain-dagger?variant=12092591276105 Maybe a little more than 2K. Regards Paul
