You know how sometimes you logon eBay
and you see the items with 3 minutes left ?? I logged on this afternoon and there was a Swiss Military postcard with no bids and a start of 99 cents..i promptly popped in 2 dollars and watched the clock run down...no snipers..the card was mine....its not a pristine card ..it has a flaw or two..but it has a decent picture of soldiers and a Swiss semi postal stamp and a military label..i am starting to go with Rods school of thought..things do not have to be perfect to be collectible..things are rarely perfect..i will show the card when it arrives !!
