Does it strike you as kind of funny that you are literally profiting from the murder of others? I'm not saying you are a bad person or anything, as someone is going to own the stuff and it is their right to sell it, but still, there's no question that the letters and painting would not be worth nearly as much were Manson not an infamous murderer. 


That's exactly why items such as Nazi memorabilia are not allowed to be sold.

I thought that was only in Germany though.

In the states too, although I don't believe it's law.  I have some authentic WWII memorabilia that was passed along in my family, I can't sell it even if I wanted to because it's Nazi stuff.  Ebay won't allow it to be sold on their website.

Lemmy from motörhead has tons of Nazi gear he collects the stuff for years and he lives in the states now. I don't think it's illegal to trade the stuff.

I've got a red nazi shirt exactly like the one Sid Vicious used to wear, all red with a massive swastika bang in the middle. Actually i been saying that for years but i ain't seen it recently but i'm sure it's in the cupboard somewhere. Thats not really Nazi memorabilia though.

I always liked the leather jackets thats the ol' Luftwaffe wore but given the choice i'd go for the Allied one, the Schott A2.

Yeah, I gotta say, the Nazis had some sweet leather jackets. Too bad they're Nazi jackets now.

Attention World:

"Loose" means something is not tight, for example "My shoelace is loose."

"Lose" means to misplace or to not win. Examples include, "Keep your keys in your pocket so you don't lose them," and, "The Yankees are going to lose tonight and every day this week for sure because they suck."

Thank you.

Actualy, that design is actually quite common now and not really like...i mean nobody has any nazi associations with em anymore than many people wouldn't equate a Schott A2 with WW2 airmen on the Allied side. But yeah, sharp dressers them Nazi's, shame about the whole mass genocide bit, sort of overshadowed their satorial elegance somewhat :lol: Didn't Hugo Boss do their gear or something, remember reading that somewhere.

Yeah I knew he had a place in NYC, that's probably why he performed with Slash when I saw them at HOB Boston last year.  I didn't know he collected Nazi stuff though.

cool, birk! isnt that in detroit though?

 
There are two different Hardcore Pawn shows.  The most popular (or original) longer running one is in Detroit, the newer one with the OP is in Chicago.
 
I like them both, the girl in the Chicago one is strangely cute too.
No...she isn't...at all.

You don't even find her slightly attractive?  I'd give her a 7/10 at best.

I think you're looking at just one ... err, two things. 

 

I agree with AiO.

He has a lot of Nazi stuff and even some tanks. He showed them in the film /documentary about his life (49% motherfucker 51% son of a bitch).

Sorry for the long delay lol, i never intended on selling the painting to them, an artist i know from Detroit did it for me, and he is working on a Gacy and Dahmer one also, i would of sold the letters, but i put a high price on them, i told them $2500 for everything, since it is a Pawn shop, but they were kind of freaked out about it, and basically wanted the items for the show, they said that they couldnt even make an offer on the items because customers could get offended if they seen that in the shop.  The chick Elyza or whatever is pretty short, so is the kid, he is even shorter.  And i cant get past her teeth always popping out, i didnt talk to her really..it was a fun experience, and my fiance loved it, cause she came with because she wanted to be on tv.   Dont forget this is a TV show, so they were like, "why are you marrying this guy" and all this stuff...it was fun, they were really cool...i actually framed the letter in a large frame a few days ago, and i may still sell them, "Manson letters FEATURED on hardcore pawn chicago" lol, i also think the "Love and Cult Terror" CD is awesome,  my band actually does a cover of CLANG BANG CLANG, its the last song here

http://www.reverbnat.../3012353#!/cat3

im the singer, i used to cover this song in like 96 lol....but yeah, if anyone is looking to purchase or trade some serial killer stuff hit me up lol...

Yeah that's the reason why. Nobody else but TV personalities would ever think the same.

 

Dont forget this is a TV show, so they were like, "why are you marrying this guy" and all this stuff.
