    Hi everyone! My name is Jeffrey Shaw. I am a lifelong MIlitaria collector. My father was a Miltaria collector. He passed away in 2009 and I inherited his collection. His collection was mainly the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. My collection ranges from the Revolutionary age through to Modern current day Military. I have around 150 knives and bayonets. United States uniforms from WWI to current. Many period uniform Patches, insignia and personal items. I have been going to a event in Reading , Pennsylvania for 23 years called the WWII weekend. It is a massive event with around 2000 worldwide re-enactors , armor, vehicles, Aircraft and most importantly WWII veterans . My family has met so many veterans and heros which brings me to my collection of photos with their signatures. I am passionate about history . I am honored to be a member of this group

    Saw this on a site for a long time. Thought it was a re-painted Torn.Fu.d2 antenna. Then looked closer and it's the antenna for my Lo1UK35 I've been looking for with one section.

    Hi folks and thanks for letting me in! Some of you may know me already - the „Fernmeldefritze“ from Germany 😉✌🏼 Collector, Reenactor and history guide when you come to Hürtgenwald area... Once active, I served in the 8th GebDiv of the Bundeswehr back in the 80th... Compared to many others active here, my collection is still to be considered as „small“ - if you want, I‘ve tried to keep it in the range of being able to set it up as a radio station during shows and events... Stay tuned for pictures and stories! Cheers Fritze

    Hi there guys, Even after pushing the forum around over 27K members on our Facebook groups, virtually no-one has returned here to chat/discuss/take part here on the forum. Facebook is just so much more convenient, just really can't justify the continual payment for this forum. I upgraded all the licences recently but as I sit here typing this, I wonder why I bothered. There's loads of great discussions taking place and militaria being shown off on the FB group, so I'd encourage you all to visit it and have a look... Even if your not on FB, it's worth joining up just for the MCN groups. Main Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/Milcol/ Sales/Trades/Wants https://www.facebook.com/groups/MCN.the.militaria.shop/

    Lenny, I would,nt bother mate , The meaning of capricious "Given to sudden and unaccountable changes of mood or behaviour " ( A capricious and often brutal administration) which does,nt apply here. Fickle, inconsistant,Changeable, unstable,mecurial, volatile,erratic,vacillating, irregular ,fitful,arbitary.... Does that remind you of somebody , I would say that people in glass houses should,nt throw stones, what say you mate???

    Hi guys, not good news I'm afraid. It's a fake. It bears a faint resemblance to an original Assmann skull but that's about it.

    I would say that it is a well made repro, but what the other person said makes no sense to me,just because its well made it has to be a fake????these were extremely well made as they had to pass RZM inspection, but I thought that most if not all had a makers name as well as an RZM mark. Your,s has very large pins , which I always thought was a giveaway. One person who would know for sure is BenVK, he,s used to applying originals to caps and repairing SS headware, I,ll message him , ask him to have a look
