Please watch for my other sales in the coming days, weeks and months to come for other WWI & WWII items. I recently came across a widow who wanted to sell all of her husbands "junk". Her husband had amassed a VERY large collection of WWI & WWII GI issue items. What is so special about his collection, is that he didn't collect just "junk" and "field used" items. A majority of the items he collected are all in VERY GOOD to MINT condition. He had a true eye for finding the unissued items, and I was the fortunate fellow to come across it all. If I only had the room to display it all myself!

Be sure to bookmark me as a seller and watch the many very nice and unique and rare items I'll be posting! Most of which I will be posting at $.01 starting price!
