  1. Very realistic. Great picture!
  2. Thank you for sharing these. Your work is unforgettable.
  3. Don is wonderfully talented and a fine historian. His passions are reflected in his art.
  4. I invite your attention to the painting Marine On Guadalcanal just posted in the Military Art forum.
  5. Marine on Guadalcanal - by Don Prechtel Oil on Canvas Original Uniform on loan from a WW2 Marine veteran From My Collection
  6. <<if a Russian buyer thinks he has paid too much for an item it also mysteriously becomes fake>> I wish that hadn't happened to me. But it did.
  7. It has been 6-1/2 years without a response to my question: Can anyone tell with any certainty whether or not this (posts 10 and 11) is an authentic example? Help a brother out here. Chuck
  8. Erors? You made erors? Give me substance over style every time. Well done.
  9. Thank you for this excellent topic. Chuck
  10. $250 retail seems about right to me.
  11. Oops. Photo won't post. I suspect operator error. Wiki link still works, though.
  12. This is Aleksander Nikolaevich Inauri, 1908 - 1993. WWII tank commander, HSU and eventual Soviet Colonel General and head of the Georgian KGB. This is his complete set of Supreme Soviet IDs and pins, from 1954 - 1984. After his death some unscrupulous quick-profit men bought his awards from someone in the family with access but perhaps not permission. They pretty much trashed everything else as junk. I bought everything else I could find in Tbilisi over the course of several years. That included these pins and IDS. I have a lot of his other stuff. Enjoy!

  13. Congratulations Rogi! When is the the next one?
  14. Thank you, gentlemen. Every piece of information is more than I had. TacHel, thank you for the message.
  15. I've had this order for a number of years, 13 or so. I've started selling my collectibles and I think I'll list it on the bay. Problem is, I have no idea what it might be worth or even what level of award it is. I've seen so many on the 'net. The red enamel loss is obvious but the rest is very solid. Can someone please help me? I would appreciate any information at all.
