He was a font of knowledge in the truest sense of the word and I always marvelled at his ability to identify crosses - often from pretty poor pictures !

I really feel as if I've lost a major influence, help and encouragement to my collecting.

The cross below was Plauts' favourite so he told me and I so I would like to add it to this thread as a tribute to Michal and his expertise.

Whilst looking through some old posts this morning i felt the sadness come rolling back to me as Michals name appeared on the screen in front of me

The cross above is very similar in its patination to a cross that i bought from M around 2 years ago.It is a common "65" stamped Klein&Quenzer Oberstein 1939 cross but i remember him clearly saying to me "You are drooling over that one Ross arnt you!" i had to chuckle as he knew i love the dark patination to the silver on Eks as much as he did,i look at it every day and i would never part with it

I know you all feel the same friends,

Wow, I haven't been on the forum all that much recently and am returning to collecting. It is terribly sad to see something like this. I always loved seeing his newest medal bar and what he was able to find about it.

I know its been a year, but still, I hope his family is doing well. He will be remembered as long as the forum is around. His cheerful posts about medal bars will be missed. Rest in Peace.
