    Kokarden for sale and wappen

    Ok guy's I am sad to see these sets are going for $200 plus now on Ebay, so I am taking these out of my personal horde and offering them for sale. These came out of the original packing as I bought them years ago in wrappers of 8 per package. All are original and close to mint, some may have...
