They are being paid because their audience is not here, and they get me regular gigs on TV and in the news. And that brings me more artifacts, which brings me profit for my business and family, as...

Sorry folks … I’ve been sick with the Norovirus for the past few days, in addition to being quite busy after our auction closed. I've said this, and I will say it again.

As always, there's a mix ... some things go for "retail" others go for "less" - the beauty of this system is that the market decides. I don't think $40K was at all unfair for the SA Honor ......

Yes, the authenticity was never a question among the bidders and those who have seen the dagger in person (many have). I still feel it was less than I would expect, but it was definitely within the...

Let me be clear, again. I'm conducting research on this set of false-identity papers, at my own pace and time, using my own resources, and without agenda. I'm sorry Bill, that you are not involved,...

That's really interesting. The one I saw had a "J" for Juden on it ... obviously an attempt at humor. My Hitler DAP ID needs no defending, as it's a known piece and has been since the 1930s with an...

No, the Getty image is derived from the original, which I had. There is an acknowledged reason that their card did not show the split, but I don't recall it. It was in a museum DURING the war,...

There is a known counterfeit done during the war by one of the Allied intelligence services, and they even went so far to mark his passport with a "J" for Jewish. I am not sure why they made it, but...

That was actually tried at Empire Auctions, and it didn't work. I generally defer to the "duty expert" in the field, in cases where there is a question. For example, in this case, if there were a...
