    Maybe I will show a few more glass-plates with buckles from 1981. From later years
    I do not have any photographs anymore. But as often mentioned in about 1984/1985
    I stopped collecting Third Reich items.

    In November 2000 I started collecting RAD traditions cap-badges. So, in some ways I
    was back to items from the Third Reich. I found in total about 65 during the period I
    collected them. Most of these will be shown in volume 5 for "Headgear of Hitler's Germany",
    in the RAD chapter. The book will be released in about late spring this year.
    They were nicely shown in my glass show-case. I have some total view photographs, which
    I can show later. From a specific period I have photographs where about 55 are visible,
    including photographs of wearing the badges.

    All badges were sold during 2007/2008, when I started collecting Japanese female kimono.
    The "stock" of that collection I could buy, due to the money from these badges!!

    Think what I could have had when I had decided not to quite HJ-collecting and collecting
    in general, but would totally have gone into HJ. In over 30 years I would have had quite a
    HJ collection with the possibilities and sources I had. But that is when.........and I did not!!

    this is the way I showed my material. When I stopped collecting all open spaces for the glass-plates were
    filled up with buckles. The shown photographs were taken March 15, 1981.

    This is how I displayed my RAD traditions cap badges. The photographs are taken in about June 2004.
    A few more are to come and then I have shown what I liked to show.

    Now I am into Japanese female kimono and Asian chopsticks. Quite different subjects. I have told this
    about various times. Due to space-limits, especially for kimono, I have to back off, as I have no room in
    the house anymore to display these large dresses.

    thanks you all take the time to have a look. It was not a big collection, but
    what I owned I was glad to have and proud to show. And so I did my best
    to display it as best as I was able!

    In the thread "Other Collections" I have a post as "No Third Reich". There one
    can see what I am collecting these days!
