Leone's plates collection

Post by Leone » Tue Dec 08, 2015 4:27 pm

Hi for all.
Here I want to introduce a part of my interests. It is my collection of helmet plates. Some in perfect condition, some in poor. But I love all of them. 8)

Yes, I don't think there is anything strange. But the methods of attachment for the Hessian seems to have varied a lot. Some are horizontal some are diagonal and your pictures show the backside very well.

Some plates from Kingdom of Wurttemberg. The deer horns is the weakest place in these plates.

Here is my first officer with incorrect (but original) horns.

Gus has threatened many members with "loading the truck", taking their collections. Fortunately for me, he is no longer allowed into Canada due to an unfortunate "grenade" incident at the border. Our European members are safe because cash crop prices were down this year so, shipping himself and the truck in a container would be prohibitive. For Americans.....there could be a problem but again....low crop prices, so maybe he can't afford the gas to get at your collections?? I am informed by reliable sources that he is going to the SOS so again, cost of gas to get there and because he will certainly buy stuff, this may limit his travels/expeditions in the year 2016. :)

Price of gas is the best part of this year, the price is so low that gas stations are paying people to take it. Diesel prices are below a buck a gallon.
