  1. It's as quiet as a morgue right now. But in two days it will be packed and deals will be going down fast and furious. Artifacts and cash will be changing hands, unicorns found, and "that buy" will be made by some.
  2. Just finished up the table map and sent it out. We've got a nice mix of 92 vendors. We have some local guys who will be bringing stuff that will knock your socks off. The museum has deaccessioned a lot of duplicates and will be selling them. They will also have 8 foot tall display walls with bases for $50 each. There are also a number of regional and national dealers coming from as far away as the Tar Heel State. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great show. Make sure and stop by if you're in the neighborhood. I've had some last minute cancellations so I have a few tables
  3. We picked up some more floor space and added more vendors and tables. We also have WW2 veteran and author Bud Sabetay returning to sign copies of his memoir. Plus John Walker will be there with his book, Bracketing the Enemy. It's going to be a great show.
  4. Thought I might add this to the discussion. As far as I know this tunic is all original. I've never run across two chevrons on the same tunic like this. I would love to know the reasoning behind it.
  5. $282, not bad. https://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Army-2nd-Chemical-Mortar-Battalion-Bullion-Patch-and-Tab-Korean-War-1951-RARE/162863727568?hash=item25eb6f43d0:g:vG0AAOSwvGlaZQvv
  6. I can't seem to find a proper identification of these wings. They are newer, made by Vanguard. I've seen them identified as foreign navy, u.s. public health service flight surgeon and prototype u.s. navy flight nurse. If anyone can enlighten me I would be most appreciative.
  7. mccooper did a fantastic job on this display. The depth of knowledge and attention to detail of each section is incredible. I would encourage anyone to check it out. The museum is one of the hidden gems of NE Ohio.
  8. In the middle of January on a very cold and snowy day, all I can think about is Spring. It will be here before you know it and so will the North Coast Military Collectors Spring Show. Mark your calendars because you don't want to miss it. A 200 table show and full access to the Military Aviation Preservation Society Museum, all for five bucks. You won't find a better deal and you might find that elusive item you haven't been able to add to your collection yet. If you are interested in setting up, I have some tables available. But don't wait too long as they don't last. Every show is a sel
  9. After a solid nine hours of uninterrupted sleep, a look at the stats and a hot cup of joe. I can happily declare the Fall 2015 North Coast Military Collectors Show a success. There are so many people who have a hand in producing and promoting the show. You all make the show what it is and it's only going to get better. Thank you to the good folks at the MAPS Air Museum who provided an outstanding facility and a level of assistance beyond measure. Thank you to all of the vendors who came out and supported the show. They brought some of the best militaria I've seen recently. Thank
  10. For those of you not familiar with the area. Look for the P-51 Mustang gate guard and the big banners at the intersection of International Parkway & State Route 241(Massillon Rd). The smaller banner will be at the main entrance to the museum. The arrowed signs will be at all the major routes into the area. For GPS / Mapping purposes here's the address to use: 2260 International Parkway, North Canton, OH 44720.
  11. I'm very happy to announce that WW2 Combat Veteran Sgt. Robert "Bud" Sabetay will once again be joining us at the show this month. He will be signing copies of his book and speaking with visitors. We are truly honored to have him attend.
  12. It started as an off the cuff comment and a "Screw it, let's do it" moment. We've come a long way in just two years. From 72 tables at an Auction House to 184 in a Military Museum. A lot of people have worked hard and helped the show thrive and grow. I owe them all a debt of gratitude. Many, many Thanks to all. Come out this month and see how we've grown. Lots of great vendors and collectors not to mention one of the best military museums in NE Ohio. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
  13. I've still got a few tables available. Shoot me an email to:sdenniss@att.net if you're interested.
  14. Thank you sir, I don't think I searched "Compass" but that would have been the most logical in hindsight.
  15. Can't for the life of me figure out what this is for. Or is it some crazy case made from other things like the heavily modified rifle cleaning case.
  16. I was just going to ask you how you found that article. But I see you wrote it...lol Thanks again!
  17. Thank you sir, most appreciated. It's in a plastic envelope to keep it clean. I'd say he has a very nice patch there and somewhat valuable.
  18. A friend recently acquired this patch and we're having a heck of a time identifying it. I had one person say it was a disney design for the 771st Tank Battalion. I haven't been able to confirm that as of yet. If it is I'm guessing it was a post war reunion or collector patch (?) Any help appreciated. Thanks, Scott
  19. I believe this would be a textbook example of a newer reproduction that could easily be passed off as an original WW2 era knife. Heavy thick pommel that is pinned. Rectangular tang, not peened. Thin black spacers. When I bought it I thought it was actually a wartime knife. As you can see this one has some age to it and looks salty. Placed in a WW2 sheath and you have all the makings of a deceptive sale and swindled buyer, not cool. Thankfully I did a little research and found this thread. Had I not this would have been unknowingly & mistakenly presented as an original.
