I knew Spin in 2002.
I was still a student and he already had a Website, Demjansk battlefield.
I am very grateful to him as he allowed to build a very nice relic helmet collection, at a price that I could afford as a student. I could even earn some extra money reselling something extras I got from him, and this was also very helpful at that time, when I didn't have any job.
Moreover, he gave me the chance to learn a lot about german helmets, handling the many genuine and untouched wartime pieces of all kinds he sent me in the years.
I am sure that as me he helped many other young collectors to grow up, altough he was very young as well.
The news of his death was terrible and unexpected. I feel very sorry.
This is a big loss.

Rest in peace, Spin!

Proud to call Eugene a friend and fellow historical enthusiast. So sad to hear that he had succumbed after having a stroke. Rest easy my friend and enjoy hunting those forgotten places, where you were at peace with the world.

Never met the man, but took great interest in reading of his digging adventures and looked forwards to his regular updates! Rest in peace.
