Hello Larry!

 

It is for me personally important to show interest in other people's gatherings. Keeping track of what you buy for your collection is a pleasure to me!

 

Cheers,Morten.

Hi Larry, Martin, Odulf and others!
It would have been nice if any of you could create a schematic overview of all "Mützenband" This could be a great database for collectors and easier way to hunt for their images.
Cheers, Morten.

Martin I have great respect for the decision you have taken but am glad you continue to
follow these threads and comment. For my part, I will buy lots until I reach 65 years (is 61 years now) and then quit my purchases. Thanks for comments Odulf and Martin.

I agree with Morten 100%. I too will quit buying when I reach 65. That is only two years away.

Cheers,

Larry

I've been collecting since the 1960's.

It went from anything TR,to just Kriegsmarine and then just Hilfskreuzer related stuff.Then that narrowed down to just items from the HK's Thor and Michel.

Although,i did turn to collecting KM photo's of awards in wear and the cap tallies also.

I love what i have amassed over the years,and enjoyed the history that came with it and learning from fellow collectors.

 

I guess at some point i will have to part with all this stuff.

Not too soon i hope.

 

Cheers,Martin.

Hi Martin, Larry, Odulf and others who have contributed to this thread.
 Had been nice and before Martin sells his collection that we all could together give a work of a book with Mützenband in wear photo. You certainly have not posted all their pictures in this thread. I have many and waiting in the mail many strange Mützenbande potato pictures. I could have written but am very bad at that because I mostly have to use Google translator.
Such a book of books early on to the late Mütsenbander book will fend off many collectors across the world. I know that many in this Mützenbander in wear thread sit on AWESOME Knowledge of this subject. Not many others have this knowledge that I know about.

 

Cheers,Morten.

As it seems we are of about the same age, gents, but I have no intention to stop collecting at 65....

Publishing a such book is not an easy task. Take for example the excellent book about German tallies 1815-1918, by Bernd Wedeking and Markus Bodeux, that's a life time job, a vocation! Perhaps a job for when we are retired. But I'll support every realistic initiative comng about.

Cheers!

I have no intention of selling off what i have in my collection right now.

I am a "Hilfskreuzer geek"

I have a collection of over 40 plus Hilfskreuzer awards,some named from crewmen from the ATLANTIS and STIER.

Plus, HK documents from many ships and HK albums from the THOR,STIER and the HANSA..I did sell my KOMET albums to a fellow collector who is writing a book on the subject.

I will correct myself in saying that i have just become a little more selective in what i buy,and at this point it is a rare occurance.

But i still enjoy this hobby,as mentioned.

 

Cheers,Martin.
