Chris:

I am not a uniform collector, but even I have to recognize the impressive collection you have displayed here. Wow.

My own interest in GOs is limited pretty much to the General Officer pistols (Colt .32 and .380 Pocket Hammerless, the M15 and the M9 Beretta). Have you any of those or their distinctive belt/holster combos, or photos of the GOs with these pistols?

All I can say is WOW!

What a fantastic collection!

If you are every going to display publicly let us know, I would travel a long ways to see those in person!

One question, in the first photograph there is a tan Admiral's uniform at the front of the display, who's uniform was that?

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing collection with us.
