As always, ive been at it! Can't seem to get it out of my system! I have been finding patches left and right for the last year, hopefully that doesnt let up!

 

First up, i found a large batch of patches, but only pictured the cut edge ones. I think the 101st is a post War example, but its nice to find one with the tab.

 

Then i picked up a small Special Forces insignia group. No name with it. Not sure if its put together, but for the price I paid, i doubt it, but ill never know.

 

This morning I visited the son of a Vet who served with the 90th ID in WWII. Nothing really crazy, some cool nazi smalls and a couple of DI's i havent identified yet. The RH PAL 36 was a nice surprise, i wasnt expecting that when i stopped in. There is no use on it at all.

 

Lastly is the real keeper of the bunch and the reason i have been selling off some of my nicer uniforms on the forum lately. The chance to pick up a righteous 1911A1 Ithaca .45, dated 1943 doesnt come around very often. Its in great shape. It walked into a Michigan gun shop still in the holster attached to the belt about 20 years ago. its been a friends collection ever since. I was glad I was able to buy it!

 

As always, comments welcome, and i hope you enjoy some of my new finds!

Nice pick up on the patches and pins really like the 101st you got there. And I say you made a good deal on getting that pistol it's is very sweet. I would have sold what I had to also to take a chance at that bad boy. She looks to me in almost mint condition I would like to see some up close pics of her. If you get a chance start a thread in the firearms section with some more pics I'm sure me and the guys would love to see it.

For sure. I will get some more pictures of the .45 this week! It shows a little wear but its in really nice shape.
