    KM Tally with Eagle cockade

    Recently picked up this original Kriegsmarine cap tally and eagle/cockade. I am lacking an original cap at the moment so I picked up a high end repro, to display the orig. insignia. The white topped cap is a post war Bundesmarine. but eagle/cockade on that are orig. I have included some photos showing the attachment of the tally to the cap, also a comparison of the orig. to a common reproduction tally. Cheers!

    WW1 German 98/05 bayonets

    I think I will become a hoarder of These. Love them.Yes, small start. I need to add some engineer saw backs.The Regt. marked one is the most recent addition. I have a 4th one in the mail, sadly its over 3 weeks late and most likely I will never see it. And it was shipped within the USA. last tracking was from 40 miles from me and 3 weeks ago.

    Was there a reason why you wanted to remove it?

    Ribbon bars and bits.

    Looks good, really good! I had to do the vaseline treatment to a Austrian wound badge 5,6 years ago and it still looks good.

    LW M42

    Recently added this ET66 M42 to the collection. Nice size and very decent liner and strap. A nice unmessed with example imo.

    Very Brexit Problems

    oh man, Ive heard alsorts of horror stories. Recently a 57mm inert russian AA round was seized and destroyed. The coppers came to my mates house,and he showed the collection. The copper says to my pal 'I am wasting my time here'

    yeah, seems to be gubbed. On top of that, I had stopped posting ordnance after I lost a German egg at Heathrow, sad that it was probably destroyed, belter of an egg.

    Since we last talked,the collection has grown again. I think this will eventually outstrip the inert ammo. I will keep the bombs and fuzes for the re enactment group. But once i decide to start selling up,it would be an avalanche of sales of the Artillery,Mines and the rest of the TR stuff

    Very Brexit Problems

    Sad to say it,but it seems that most European inert ammo dealers i know will not be coming across to the UK anymore. Trade now is made extremely difficult with paperwork,taxes on individual items and general border shittery. Im actually gutted,if im honest. Just glad i collected what i did at the time. End of an era.

    Helmet question

    You can remove liners, however you really shouldn't as the retaining clips get bent and the helmet never really looks, or is, untouched again...

    Helmet question

    I own very few helmets, and half of them are pots, so I have what I'm afraid is a very uneducated question. Is there any safe way to remove the entire liner of a Spanish Civil War helmet (or any other liner that's partly bolted to the helmet)?

  25. Hi, and thank you. The stamp itself was found by a member of XXX Corps British Army during 1944. The card is of no consequence. The finder kept the stamp and used it after the war to seal personal papers.
  26. We'll be moving away from Facebook to this web forum as FB really hate militaria groups. No censorship, unlimited pictures, buy & sell and lots more... However, It’s an expensive business hosting a website, software licences etc. if you appreciate what the MCN does for collectors, then please consider donating. The forum licences have expired, so need to renew them imediately... I have set the target at £395 per year, which is less than it actually costs, but I pay the extra above that amount. After that, any surplus money raised will be donated to veteran charities. For 2021 our chosen charity is Combat Stress. https://www.militariacollectors.network/donations/donate-to-the-mcn-2022/

    Real or Fake? AWS Panzer Assault Badge

    Now that Rich has pointed out the problems, I can see what he means and the flaws on this badge, and I hope you can get some money back
