They showed a basket of misc. items that had been sorted out. What was surprising to me was the pocket change they had found. Nearly every coin was bent, crushed, or mutilated in some way. Gave you a bit of perspective on what happened to the people who had those coins in their pockets and purses… Reply It’s amazing what survived the wreckage. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=V-QycTzwV7c Reply ? Reply The passport wasn’t in the tower when it progressively collapsed. It was on the terrorist in the cockpit and was blown *through* the building and was found *blocks* away from the collapse… Reply Oh well, then… that’s MUCH more logical. Reply You type that with a straight face? Reply Whom is your comment directed at? So, basically this is a plain old Kimber 1911 that happened to be stored below TWC. Explain why it’s notable or more valuable than a new Kimber 1911? Reply Explain to me why a Garand carried on Omaha Beach is more valuable than one that sat in an Italian warehouse for seventy years. Reply OH snap. Reply Trick question. Answer is it’s not. Reply It depends. Was it carried by your grandfather during Operation Overlord? If so, I’d value it rather high as an heirloom. I got into a conversation with the owner of the first pawn shop I worked at in the mid-80’s. He kept telling me something was worth (X) dollars. I told him, when it came down to it, something is only ‘worth’ what someone is willing to pay for it… Provenance Reply So that is what it takes to make one of those pieces sh!t work. Reply Could you update the review by adding his rank? Either as “Staff Sergeant Romesha” or “SSG Romesha”. It is disrespectful to his position and profession achievements to omit. Making the rank of E-6 is notable and placed him in his leadership position. PS: Feel free to omit titles bestowed on marxist elected offiicials Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
