Shoulder cords

Ken has nice shoulder cords. I just sent him a little extra for the wimple he sent. Where did you get these? You don't see the Grenztruppen cords in quantity these days.

i was staioned in germany when the wall fell,at that time this stuff was being thrown at us,it was everywhere.i was given all this by a friend and i just stuck it in a cabinet,about a month ago while doing some cleaning i came across this stuff and thought maybe someone out there would like to have it and maybe i could make a bit of ammo money out of it..im not looking to make a mint..just give a few guys a good deal on this stuff and find it a good home..anyplace is better than my odds and ends cabinet!

Thanks!

I figured it might have been something like this. I've heard stories about this time frame. It was interesting what you could pick up into the early 90's here.
Some items have really dried up over the years, and some, like the Summer Tunics, are starting to appear from some warehouse in Germany. I had a Border Guard tunic that I got in the early 90's that the cord should look nice on. The Wimple will look nice on the wall.

ted sent you a pm,,and yes i wish i had had the foresight to really scoop some items up at that time as it was everywhere,i recall a full complete chemical set..mask suite gloves boots the whole thing and the guy wanted what at the time was like 30 dollars u.s.! but at the time i just didnt think about making money in the future off that kind of thing. well you know what they say about hindsight....and as far as the rest of this stuff i have if i cant sell it..ill just put it back into the cabinet for storage again..no big deal....
