Young(ish) Collector’s Collection

Post by michaelwwi » Sat Nov 28, 2020 7:39 pm

Hello! I have been a collector for about 5 years now, I am 21 and collect from the First World War, my collection consists of all countries but lately I’ve been primarily collecting Imperial German. I’ve only one Pickelhaube at the moment, a Prussian M15 marked to the 30th Pionier Regiment. I have a couple of stahlhelms as well but I would like to continue collecting more Pickelhaubes and Shakos as well. Thank you for welcoming me into the community!

Hot damn! That is a sweet collection for 21 years on the planet! All I had at 21 was a WW1 CEF bayonet dated 1917 that my Mom bought for me when I was 16! I bought my first Prussian M15 haube when I was 35! :) You are in good company Michael...welcome! :thumb up:

Thank you very much for your kind words! I've been in the market for an M95 or perhaps a Shako for a while now but the market has been tough! Hopefully I'll have something new to display soon enough!

Welcome, great start. At 21 I had a full collection of military stuff and was being paid to wear it.

You have a pretty good start for someone who is 21! :thumb up: Keep on adding to what you have, but also preserving it, especially items that can dry-rot and rust. :cry: Thanks for posting! I look forward to seeing it grow in the years to come :)
Best regards,
John
