Thread: Sad story

    I just rescued this LSR AJACK, hopefully before it's too late to save. Actually optics seem fine, just 65 years of neglect to overcome. I can see it now, wrapped in burlap, consigned to a box in the garage, and forgotten. I will do my best for this old vet.

    I'm sure it will clean up just fine and exhibit a nice patina!

    Really sad indeed. Remember items like this were just junk right after the war. So much more was just thrown away and discarded without a second thought. There was really no way to know back then that collectors such as ourselves would salivate so much over this stuff let alone the ridiculous prices some of this German stuff can fetch.
