A salty ushanka


I just received this ushanka. I bought it in Germany from a guy that states it was a german vet bringback. The size is quite small, about a 53. No sign of a stamp. The star was one I had in my collection, as it came without one.

I would appreciate your comments.

Swap Adverts?


Within the classifieds would it be possible to create a swap category, that is to say a place where collectors can trade their surplus rather than sell it?

Also would it be possible to have an 'Other' wanted category?



Not too good this week


Didn't get out this weekend until today and then a bit late. Still got a few bits.

I like the Germany Awake cigarette card book as this is my first!:), the fold out picture at the back shows the scale of the rallies. I like the flier in the book advertising all the other Hitler books available, he must have made a killing from the spin off of his popularity, you think he would have been happy with that.

I also like the Goring book, the binder is quite nice and in keeping with his extravagant character.

The Mein Kampf is just the standard one 14th edition.

The 12 year army was a surprise with the KVK and the DDR CCCP medals.

The map of Germany is post war with the various occupied areas marked. There is one of UK too.

If anyone requires better pics I will try my best.

Luftwaffe Gravy boat

Hi! I have this piece, it was bought here in spain in an antique shop of Madrid, I was wondering if is original or not, I payed the equivalent of 50$, the man of the shop has two for selling: I choose this one because of it's integrity, the other one was year marked(1940) but has a crack, both were same maker & value. Any opinion welcome! cheers!
