Catching the Early Bird (video)

I have been looking for the odd, and strange, the unique and forgotten items from the past for many years. This weekend was no different.  I produced this video and documented what it was like to be the early bird at this very interesting sale. The first item I picked up was a German labor day badge from 1934. What it was doing in a Connecticut garage is the real mystery.

 Right next to it was an equally interesting commemorative medal (also German) known as the Centenary Medal.  This was established in 1897 by Kaiser Wilhelm the 2nd in honor of his father Wilhelm the 1st. It is made of captured cannon metal and awarded to veteran's of Germany's previous wars. Take a look at the Wiki article, Here.

There was more to this sale, so please watch this short documentary of my journey through it.
