Re: Hi Everyone!

I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. I'm just sorry that I couldn't give you more attention as even though I was "off" yesterday it was rather busy with it being Remembrance Sunday. As you saw I had to be everywhere at once. It was a rather non-stop day.

I hope you got home in ease. I didn't mean to burden you with some much junk that you had to get a taxi but you're welcome to the uniforms and what have you if you're giving them a good home. Don't drink all the wine at once! It usually retails for £379 a bottle but as you know it certainly doesn't cost me anything like that and I could never drink it all.

Hopefully you got to see everything you wanted. I know it is a bit chaotic and information overload but there is never enough time. Maybe next time things can be a bit more focussed. you can have a think about what you'd like to see or do before you get here.

I'll post those Medals you brought with translated citations later today - the first time I've seen a trophy hunter's awards.

I don't know if you could call that pile of Korean awards a skip but I gave up counting them (or being able to move them) a long time ago. I was sold most of them extremely cheaply with the proviso that I keep them off the market so prices don't deflate. The same dealer sent me a picture of a warehouse in China that has so many DPRK awards in it (even the very top end and "rare" pieces) that even at a penny a piece I'd never be able to afford them. Maybe they should be sold by weight. Those "investing" are going to have a great surprise.

May be of interest to a lot of people...

First of all, hello fellow collectors!
I am posting for the 1st time & will probably be looking for a lot of advice & asking a lot of questions. I have collected various militaria for a few years but have just got the opportunity to aquire a lot of Russian/Soviet/imperial/Eastern block items! A real varied bunch-i have found a goldmine but i dont have a lot of knowledge on the matters. Excuse me if i ask silly questions, we all have to start somewhere! I will be keeping some items & selling some on. My main interest is WW2 period. I have just aquired 2 folders worth of medals & have tried to research how rare/values etc & have found a great variety. Advice on where & what sections to post medals in would be great & also where to sell while trying to avoid dealers who are trying to make profits, id rather sell to fellow collectors.
Any advice is greatly appreciated,thank for now.

Re: Hi Everyone!

Dennis, welcome to the forum. Post away and a moderator can reposition an incorrect placement if necessary. Feel free to look around and educate yourself as there are a lot of fakes out there.
