Question about not touching Nazi shit:

Is it primarily a matter of the kind of people you meet when you deal in it, or just general principles?

To amplify a bit ... The cost of a Nazi Luger might be $1000 or more greater than one from the pre-nazi era. The premium is very large. The folks that collect are just collectors, not nuts, largely. I personally find collecting nazi stuff repellent. That said, I have a couple of things my Dad brought back (after he won the war for the limeys) and a couple of daggers from my wife's uncle. Those are not part of a "nazi collection" but sorta heirlooms that I hope will speak to the kids one day. They are put away, not out for people to see and I never show them.

There's a similar Nazi trade in stamp collecting.

Especially stamps cancelled at concentration camp post offices.

Really repulsive. I have heard that there is a collecting area for concentration camp items.
