Re: Ones man's opinion on WWII photograhps

phylo, just read your comment, and i completely agree with you, someone that does something like that, preys on the elderly, should be put in stockades, and beaten by the elderly. having been in this business for 35 years, the dealers i hate the most, are the ones, who go to the funeral of a wwii ve...
