    Apologies. Was: eBay SEXTANT?
    From: Alexandre Eremenko
    Date: 2004 Nov 10, 13:48 -0500

    This time I decided to apologize
    before someone says that I am "picking a fight"
    with everybody:-)
    One of my previous messages on this subject could
    be interpreted that collecting a sextant (or anything else)
    with a swastica automatically implies automatically some
    sympaties to the Nazis.
    This is wrong. After some thinking, I understood,
    that some people can
    the same about "red star" or other Soviet symbols.
    It is true, I would never buy a thing with a swastica
    as a decoration for my home, but nevertheless, I would be
    curious to see such a thing in a museum, or in a private
    historical collection, and I have NO objection of putting
    it there.
    In other words, I withdraw my objections to people who
    buy "genuine Kriegmarine memorabilia". I think this is
    can be a legitimate business/hobby.
    I understand this is again out of the scope of this list,
    but I had to correct some of my previous messages on the subject.
