  1. I haven't been active here in a long time. Mostly, life got in the way. But I just returned from Tbilisi again and I have a few new things I want to share, a couple of which may not have been seen on this forum before. I see that a lot of things have changed here in the last several years. First up is this badge commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Georgia State Militia, so 1931 I suppose. I can't find it in any of my references. Maybe someone here can help. About 15,000 in the militia at this time and (I'm told) only about 200 of these issued. Numbers from a Georgian historian friend.
  2. Any new thoughts on the little Red Cross badge?
  3. You’re quite welcome. I’ll try to get some others posted here.
  4. Nick Here's one that you might like, especially if you collect Osoaviakhim.
  5. Icebreaker? Saphire? I have several nice cigarette cases. Do you collect them? This is a particularly handsome example.
  6. I'm away from home but I have a good one. If this topic is still open next weekend I'll post it for comparison. I'm skeptical about this one but no one else has responded.
  7. This past winter. He's a pretty good friend. We made a trade that I told him was way too much in my favor. He told me he wanted me to have this framed painting so there you are. He is pretty famous and a number of people collect him so it's not like he has any trouble placing his paintings. This one has a prominent place in our home. So does the Guadalcanal painting. He has done a LOT of Civil War and Old West paintings. He's been featured on the cover of Old West and Civil War magazines several times. Don has a cabinet of prints that he no longer bothers with. Three are hanging in our home. I have many of them on a thumb drive. Maybe I should share them here, too. They are also for sale way too cheap because he just got bored with prints. I appreciate the chance to share his art here.
  8. Painting by Don Prechtel. From my collection.
