I am sure the auction nannies over on eBay were alarmed when they saw the listing pictured to the left. It's pretty unusual to see an eBay listing that includes two forbidden firearms in the gallery pictures. Just to be clear the seller is only offering up the 82nd Airborne collection but it did get my attention.

The trench binoculars might be an example of war time equipment that was ingenious but would look pretty silly to use today. I don't know maybe a hunter in a deer blind could make use of them but I wouldn't take them to a NASCAR race to watch the cars make left turns.

For a minute I thought about purchasing the old Soviet flag to use as a lesson prop. But having grown up in the 80s I still remember how we looked at the Soviets in the Cold War. Instead of displaying this in my class during the lesson I'll just stick to a computer graphic and spend my money somewhere else.

The closing block is full of WW1 pieces including trench art, helmets, medals and more. Click any of these to see what the best selling items are from the war fought 100 years ago.
