Hi,

 

This weekend i was at a flea market next to Elko Speedway in Minnesota. I was talking to a comic book dealer and he had three big boxes pulled out of a hoarders house. The lady that had these, kept everything from napkins to boat tickets.

 

Everything is absolutely mint or close to mint. I haven't even gotten through all of it yet. I made a deal for everything military he had. The items range from WWI to Korea. Homefront, PX, ect items mostly paper.

Some very cool things in here.

 

About 2/3 of the haul pictured.

 

Enjoy,

 

-Matthew

Title should be Homefront/PX. I've been having some weird issues with a delay in the keyboard. If an admin can fix the title, that would be greatly appreciated.

That is an awesome find!  Looks like some great stuff in there! 

Those period books/pamphlets are always fun to read and give a great insight into the daily lives back then.
