My collection display..

Post by Edward1987 » Tue Jan 07, 2020 9:27 pm

Hey guys just a few pics of my collection coming along. Have had to stop buying so much over Xmas and new year as money has dried up a little but looking forward to adding some more stuff when my business picks up again in the next few months...

Is that a genuine British boer war type iron ration tin in the middle with a massive MOD arrow ?

He posted a close up photo and I believe it’s a resin casting of a real one. Several on eBay, I’ve thought about picking one or two up just for the giggles.
All the best, Gents.

It's real, Ed had to pay £250 for it though :shock:
On an impossible mission to get every ration ever :D

Looking for Vintage, rare and just plain strange items

Is it real? Well I’ll be damned. That’s awesome. I’d totally pay that much for a Boer War dated one just because of my fascination with Victorian era militaria.

Yea it’s real, it’s in fantastic condition, I’ve not seen another one like it in similar condition. It’s probably the only ration I don’t have any plans on opening/reviewing. Here’s a few more pics...
