    Haen,
    Check Kevin's online blog page, he has individual pictures there. I don't think he would mind if you borrowed one for a display.

    Some one must have found a whole box of these as the batch numbers vary on these two Nederlande triangles from 427271 to 428758 , I know Weitze has around 5 to 10 of these and I have seen several on a few dealers sites to date .
    My question is if someone out there that has a couple of thousand of these stashed away . Why not flood the market with these . What Im getting at , if there are 100,000 Collectors of 3rd Reich militaria world wide , out of that mabye 1,500 Hitler Youth Collectors of wich mabye around only 100 are serious HJ collectors . The only since it makes is to me is instead of keeping them all , selling mabye 10 a year at 500 dollars a pop , why not just put a couple hundred of them out at 150 dollars each . I bet we would all buy 2 or three of them each .
    Boy we all would be happy then eh .

    I agree Joe, definetly a horde find or something. Funny how the price varies from dealer to dealer. I saw one dealer selling them at 250 Euro, and Wietze is asking 500.

    Double thanks

    Hi Guys (and Gals),
    The point meanwhile is moot. I have decided to be happy with what I already have (replacements for my lost decorations, EKII, KVKII,Verw.Abz.Schw.,en Infantry Sturmabz.) compliments of local friends from THEIR collection.
    A Lt.Col of the US paratroopers, even made up some VERY good looking replica's of my soldbuch, and Certificates for the decorations.. Were it not for the inscription on the last page of the soldbuch, (inserted on purpose) it did pass (by a collector) as real. All these were based on copies of my stammkarte, compliments of NIOD (Dutch Institute of War Documentation).
    I also have a shadowbox with memories of the Royal Netherlands Army in which I later served as a non-com, and the Royal Neth.Red Cross Ambulance Corps (volunteer/trainer non.com)
    So I better look at the few years I have left, rather than keep reminiscing about the past, and crying over the things I don't have. I will keep looking and posting on this forum though ( don't get rid of me THAT easy
    Cheers
    HN.

    offer

    I just had a thought (1st time for everything).
    I DO aplogize, if I inadvertendly insulted any of the members, by declining their offer. That was not meant to be.
    But I also realize that saying things like "I would not mind having this or that", could be implied as a fishing expedition.

    BTW, I AM curious about your ages !
    Mine is 83 3/4. Anyone want to share his/hers ?
    Reason ?: I wonder what kind of people, 65/70 years after the facts are getting interested in WWII memorabilia.

    Cheers !. HN
