Stolen Cap Collection!!!!!!

Hello everyone,

I just read a disturbing bulletin from a fellow collector in Belgium who has recently had his entire 20 year collection of German hats/headgear stolen from his home. He believes the thief may be a local Belgian who had knowledge of the collection. I am trying to get a copy of his bulletin to post here so we know the details of what to watch out for. In the meantime please spread the word and keep your eyes and ears open for anyone offering an entire cap collection for sale. Maybe we'll get lucky and be able to help a fellow collector out through our communication networks here.

John

I just noticed that Sebastian has posted a thread on the Collectors Community Forum on this same issue (guess I'm a few days behind). His thread has more details as well as a link to the collectors bulletin posted on Ebay with a list of the items. Please take a look and spread the word.

I believe Prosper already did so, and that the collector is an American living in Luxembourg.
