I recently saw a story on the news where in Ireland someone paid over a million dollars for a photograph of a potato. So clearly art is in the eyes of the beholder. So is it "trench art" if you glue a couple of German coins onto a zippo lighter?

I know some collectors like to decorate their man caves with banners and artwork. I don't think the Italian fascist banner below would work in my hideout but clearly somebody want to have it.

I frequently have RAF items featured in this block and the dress uniform today fills that spot. However, it's not wowing me with bids so I think there are a lot more of these decorative uniforms that survived rather than some of the other RAF pieces that sell for a lot more when I find them.

Tucked away in the WW1 block you can sometimes find a real hidden treasure. Check out the framed art below that features a neat collection of early aviation items including a balloon pin.
