  1. very nice, i have the same type Drago Paris, like yours, without a number and i have been after a numbered piece for the last 10 years.
  2. i recall a SOS show 4 years ago, while walking through the ailes i was surprised to see an elder man with a baseball cap and attached to it a Khmer para badge, so i stopped him and we talked and he told me that he was an instructor for FANk units, i asked him if his badge was numbered, and he pulled it from his cap, detached the french pins, and i saw the number on the back, it was the first FANK french made para badge that was numbered that i have ever seen. Laotian you can find them from time to time. HCMT

  6. when i go in the chapters i cant see any pictures, do you need to register?
  7. i think over the past years and with the internet there is a bigger interest in european collectors for US militaria
  8. the higher price is also coming because with the internet, it s attracting international bidders, maybe not with blades because of custom regulations, but many collectors in Europe are collecting US military.
  9. i have bought twice from him 10 years ago, smooth transaction, but the web site is confusing and completely outdated, so i quite following it long time ago.
