Unter der hammer at the ‘Eclectic Collector‘ auction.
At Whyte’s Auctioneers on Molesworth Street, Dublin 2.
German blockade breaker’s badge and lapel pin and medallion plus Nazi party membership badge (sold for 540 euros).
Is that what Nazi memorabilia is these days….”Eclectic”? should we all be eclectic now, Father?
War memorabilia is far from eclectic collecting – it’s quite specific. Whereas collecting anything from the Nazi period could be termed eclectic as it can cover a wide range of items from doormats to buttons. Given that it was quite a short period of extremism, some would say fascinating – with really powerful branding – the items are highly collectible. Being a collector does not align you with the politics that your collection represents however, as has been many times mentioned.
Would Marco have them all destroyed?
The auction was called eclectic, not the specific pieces in it, you numpty.

It’s not racist to buy stuff like this. They’re not paying and thereby funding the NSDAP like. Artefacts is artefacts.
I mean it’s obviously fascistic to ponce about your house in it after, but buying a British army pin or something from 1916 doesn’t make you a dissident republican.
That was a poo analogy – I meant it doesn’t make you an MI6 operative >_<
It kinda was, but I, for one will forgive. Unlike the Nazis, who would have you confront a firing squad, etc…
I’m a gay leftie – they’d have had me killed long before a grammar infraction could occur!
A perfect gift for a drumpf supporter….
I don’t agree.
What app is that… do I swipe left or right? :)
