It's certainly impressive.

More? This was in a large plastic footlocker that had BDU uniforms and some field gear. The storage locker was sold at auction and the guy who bought it called me to see if I was interested. The price for the whole foot locker was high in my opinion and I negotiated for these items from the locker. Is that better?

You might be able to find Ellis via social media.  Could be he fell on some hard times and lost the contents of that locker because of it.
