Thank you, TWW,
It is words like yours that make highly specialized collecting rewarding in the end - in spite of all the costs. And I do not only mean money but most of all time for studying, making endless museum tours, buying hundreds of books and taking thousands of photographs ... It is is a different kind of living requiring many sacrifices in order to be able and collect things that most people would never give a damn about.
I, for example, do not even have a car or a bike. But I have a highly specialized collection.
It is as Jim told me: We follow a different drum. Thank you again, Jim, my friend!
