  1. Very informative info Brian - thank you ! I wasn't on the forum for a while … or a bit longer .. If we are talking about Freikorps Caspari , I have few pieces from one of his former officers ( I bought them from his son ! ) - they are from WW I and WW II era , nothing from his Freikorps time … I was told he was participating in this particular Freikorps .

  9. don't even tell me Eric ... quiet few times and the worst part was when it went underpriced or at least for less then I was ready to pay .... damn it !! I never use a sniper , but if you participating in online auctions and want to live like a human ... this is a must ! best regards Kornel
