I was wondering if there is anything of particular interest here?  I know there are collectors of this here on the forum, but its 100% not my area of interest.  That being said, maybe these could find better homes than in  a case.  Click the picture to have it rotate properly, not sure why it didn't upload that way.

Those all seem to be fairly nice examples. In fact it's quite a good collection. Collecting this stuff seems to be fairly personal, so I don't know if anything is particularly rare or desireable. I know what I would get! I have never seen the Signal Corps badge on white wings one before, it might be rare. The Wings over America pin looks interesting, and I have a weakness for Navy itens so I would probably get the Philadelphia Navy Yard pin. Some are fairly common, like the CD pin and the Efficiency award pin. Most of them require closer examination, I can't really make out a lot from the picture.

Love the little Air Crew wings! I have a WWII Crew photo, and I am collecting the different wings that the crewmen had and am going to frame the photo with the different wings and ribbons that they collectively were awarded. Super collection! Would love to see some close-up photos of different areas of your case!

Thank you for the kind comments, but this isn't my case.  It is at a surplus/junk shop that I frequent and didn't know if there was anything other collectors might be interested in.  I know you're in central Ohio, so you might actually be reasonable close to the shop.  If you're interested, shoot me a PM and I'll let you know where its at.

Some nice pieces in the mix. I'm particularly fond of the AAF lockets and bracelets. That little canteen is pretty neat too.
