Hello. I noticed that in a good tone on this forum is to introduce myself, and I did not do it. My name is Paul (Pawel), I live in Poland. I mainly collect melee weapons, sabers, bayonets, and until recently I was not interested in the insignia and equipment of Imperial Germany. But a month ago I had the opportunity to purchase at a bargain price a fairly large collection of such items, I would be a fool if I did not do it. A fellow collector, who has more experience, said it was a great purchase. Unfortunately, I do not have the appropriate knowledge and some items I can not properly identify. There are also some copies that are easily recognizable. There are also items that I'm not sure are original. That is why I will ask for help in assessing these subjects, because I know that you have a lot of knowledge and experience. I'm learning, of course, because it's a new challenge for me. In time, I will present part of this collection. Yours sincerely. Pawel.
