[attachmentid=37071][attachmentid=37072]Nice little gems Pete. Here is one I don't think you know I have. Meine Starke Deutschlands Nacht 4-5.3.34

Also, do you happen to know anything about post 287? 1937 SAAZ? What would the symbol on the flag stand for? Pardon my ignorance. Also, post 288 Gau Treffen. Very nice original example. There are copies of that one out and about. My tinnie post for today. Robert :beer:

I presume Saaz is a place, it says SJ on the flag. Saaz Youth?

Yes I was lucky with the oft faked one, I almost got bitten once, but the vendors photos were good and you could see the lack of quality ( I don't think he knew) It appears to be cupal (thin sheet copper on an aluminium core)

I see someone snagged this from WA site, so I'll post it first:-

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian

    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
