OK, here's the idea. I think it would be good to know, and potentially beneficial for all, to have some sense of who collects what. That said, I certainly understand that most people who collect photos will pick up anything they find interesting (even outside their specific interests) if something happens to come along and the price is right. This is quite true with me as well. If something weird, strange, unusual comes along and I think I can find out more about it I will most likely pick it up (an example of this would be the 6888th WAC Postal Bn. portrait I posted a couple of days ago. I had not idea what it was when I bought it but I knew it was different and the price was right. Thanks to some members of this forum I was able to find out what it was and learn something, which I am grateful for)
So, that aside, what do you specialize in? What typically are you looking for? If we all knew, I think we could help each other more, which (should be) part of what this hobby is about.
Here is my request. Please list (up to five) of the top subjects you are looking for and post an example or two.
I will start. I am looking for original portraits of:
* US and US ally elite forces (US Special Forces [Vietnam or before], Ranger/Airborne/OSS/SAS/SOE [WW2]
* USMC 15th Separate Bn. [WW1]
* Anything related to US War Dogs from any time period
* Rare or unusual insignia in wear
Here is a nice one I picked up recently at Bob's show. Always looking for more like this.
Thanks. Please join in.
