I received the following email from a militaria dealer in Greece who I buy from
A few days ago I purchased a WWI Belgian Cavalry Badge from her, and received this reply................

Dear John,
Your medal has been gently taken from our shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your medals into the finest gold-lined envelope that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Athens waved "Bon Voyage!" to your package, on its way to you, in our private jet on this day, December 23, 2010.

Our computer guru, an ex NASA specialist with 5 Master and PhD degrees, carefully typed the tracking number RE921908507GR on www.elta.gr, saved it as his wallpaper and promised not to take his eyes off of the screen until your positive feedback informs us for the safe arrival of your medal, at your doorstep. Then our positive feedback in return will seal this great deal in the most suitable way.

We hope you had a wonderful time shopping with us. In commemoration, we have placed your picture on our wall as "Customer of the Year." We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back!!
Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
PS. We miss you already. We'll be right here, patiently awaiting your return.

P.S 2: I hope I managed to make you laugh a bit. I would like to thank you once again for your purchase, and ask you to consider a full 5 star rating upon receiving of your item, if you are satisfied with it and the services we provided. Also, I would like to inform you, that I sell items on Ebay under the nicknames Hunderrina, Hunderrigrek, Aligeo and Dracoorden, in case you fall on something that might be of your interest in the future. Additionally, if you decide upon receiving of your medals, that I am a reliable seller, please donít hesitate to contact me next time that you ll be looking for a medal. If I have it I can provide you photos and offer it in better price than what Iíd listed it for on Ebay, where I have to take into consideration the venue's fees.

Best regards and wishes for happy holidays, a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
