Now, this is what I call a great cliffhanger, we all are curious now to get to know what you are waiting for since ten years. 

But you may find strength in the wise words of Buddha Noir: If ten years you wait, what a difference ten hours make?

Ahhhh... but Buddha was not at the mercy of DP!

I am of the firm belief if you mention something before it arrives, the DP will lose it!

I guess every collectors heart could feel what you do right now, if you knew a parcel is to come for your door with a piece wanted so bad, seconds could last forever. So I keep my thumbs pressed that you will get it tomorrow!

She is used to it by now... no sexy underwear compares to a 105 year old pair of Gamaschen!! Buuuut... here it is... maybe not even the most impressive find of the month... but it took 10 years to find them... they are not even 100% matching, but did belong to one man, an Uffz. decorated with the EK1, but did not get the Leiberring for some reason, I have to check his files... He was Leib Regiment in WW1, then Freikorps, then a LW officer in WW2 ....straps.thumb.jpg.b676736d8a8ef602e1e44e59a2cff4c1.jpg

Congratulations on this, I think you might be a happy collector for this moment, before the need for the next thing kicked in. We all knew this! 

I have to admit that I would passed by these pieces, if seeing them on a flee market, but always nice to learn new stuff here in this forum.

That is it in a nutshell... I can look at 100 pairs of straps and 2 will be relevant for me... fact is, if you even see 1 or 2 pairs of fieldgrey straps a week on all sale platforms you are doing well... but to se one of the 3-4 you are really after only happens every few years... and it took me 10 years to find this regiment 🙂

The though part of course is to stay focussed in the period in-between and safe your pennies for that one piece you really want ..... 😇 As Stefan says, we all struggle with that. ....

But these straps go to the heart of your collection, so well done, your patience has paid off ....

Cheers, 

Sandro

    • 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.
