    Stuart: They went to a few different people. Some 'famous' in their fields, some just normal people.
    I sent the then VHS (now DVD) as an infomertial out to about 4 people. Then I just received phone calls saying, "I'll take this & this & this, etc."

    Zander: What it would be worth now? I don't like to think about things like that. I would require heavy psych medicine. As a note, I don't think I ever passed up a flag I saw for sale. It got expensive even then. In '92 I actually sold a 89 Harley Davidson 1200 Sportster for the BDM &
    untergau (bann) pennants & the
    Ilfeld tunic as a group. Wy wife just shook her head horizontally.

    If I could roll back time, I'd would have kept perhaps 8 of them. Oh well, onward and upward as I alway say. You can't dwell on things you used to have or you'll be on lithium in no time.

    If you've seen any of the any of the items I've been posting [that I own and am buying these days], it has not been any uniforms or flags, nor will it be. That chapter is closed.

    I have no desire to repeat it. So this time around it's the medals I already have and insignia. That's It. I had some insignia in the first go-around, but not really too much, there were just too many flags and uniforms floating around at that time.

    I'm very glad it was enjoyable for you guys!

    i know hard times too. i had two ss caps a couple of years back, the pride of my collection, kept them in a hat box, handled them with gentle care, when i had to sell them the guy gave me the cheque and threw them on the pile of other caps on the table behind him, just no respect. your collection was great, but dont feel to upset, at least you HAD them, lots of other guys never have the chance to even own one, never mind dozens.

    Kevin, was the flieger HJ Gefolgschaftsfahne the one I've seen with a
    emblem on the corner patch? If so what a flag that one is!

    Hey Darin,
    The Flieger gefolgschaft standart was just a normal flag with the bann & gefolgschaft number.
    Sorry. But it was a good example, all the rings wee there and the paper tag was still on it.

    Next time I watch the movie, I'll get the the bann number.

    The finished basement with all of the items displayed and mannequins was a great place to unwind and drink a Warsteiner. I had a nice comfortable chair down there.

    Funny, I can still remember the faces on the mannequins.... :cool:

    This of course was all way "before kids".
