I'm still new to collecting medals and i tend to buy medals that catches my eye.

In the case of the Silver Star (and it's miniature I also have) in this picture it was part of a group by a seller as a WW2 group that the seller thought was the  France and Germany Star. Luckily I spotted the difference and he broke up the set and sold the Silver Star set to me.

Just shows what kind of thing can pop up if you do some research and have sharp eyes.

Exactly what I thought except he did not notice that the design of the ''France and Germany Star'' in his collection differed substantially from all the others. All the other medals themselves in the WW2 series he had for sale had exactly the same obverse design so the difference immediately caught my eye.

And to be honest: I don't feel bad for asking him to break up the set to sell the Silver Star separately since it clearly wasn't a France and Germany Star so in fact it wasn't a bona fide full WW2 set as claimed.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
