Couple of medal bars I picked up at a show this weekend, hope you enjoy. But the best was meeting fellow collectors like Mr. Tom Yanacek whom it was wonderful to meet, thank you Tom for your time and knowledge.

Best Regards,

Jef

Hi Jef,

Looks like you had a great show, two lovely additions in great shape.

Tom Y. is indeed a great guy, certainly one to know when it comes to medal bars. His book on the subject is excellent.

Tom

Smile Thank you!

Hi Jef,

It was a pleasure to meet and talk with you at the Wilmington Show. I hope I will be seeing you at many more shows.

Congratulations on picking up two very nice medal bars for your collection. I especially like the Hesse-Darmstadt three-placer with the Fire Brigade Decoration. I almost bought that one myself two years ago at the SOS.

Best regards,
Tom
