I really like the display of the cut edge patches as items unto themselves. Many collectors tend to loose sight that the shoulder sleeve insignia represented a man just as much as his helmet and gear. Lucky for us these are still readily available. Your display shelves are very well laid out. Nicely done!

Hallo Jürg

Da ist eine schönes Sammlung.

 

Nice collection to start off with. It must be hard to find German paratrooper items now even in Europe. Best thing about the ground dug relics is that they are defiantly original.

Great display. You have highlighted smaller items that most US collectors tend to keep in insignia alblums or relegated to a shelf out of sight. I tend to do that. So, your display has given me ideas to minimize and bring focus to those items. Thank you for sharing. Well done!

 

Best regards,

A very nice presentation! Less is More when presenting. Of course, most of us keep buying more and more and more and more stuff and have less and less and less and less space to put it all. :)
