    Old retired guy in Florida, held office in five collector and shooting clubs 1961-99. Untill sold in 1989-90 had an extensive collection of Federal Period weapons. I now try to LEARN about and COLLECT older USMC items, mostly because my Dad was I Co 3rd Btl 21st Marines 3rd Div Guam and Iwo Jima. His brother was a Gunny Sgt on a 1st Div Long Tom in South Pacific and his son was a Tunnel Rat in Vietnam. I also have another Uncle that was in USMC during Korean War. My wife is Ojibwe Indian belonging to tribe at Sault Ste Marie, Michigan, so we also collect some of that tribes antique items.

  2. I'm thinking about buying a 1920-30 USMC jacket it has these EGAs on collar I do not remember ever seeing any like these. The lack of quality is so bad I do not like them.

  10. This same thing happened to my wife on a doll she bought on Facebook. After 3 calls they gave me a tracking # When tracked it said "with shipping partner facility agent Pitney Bowes and USPS is awaiting item in NY". After more emails (no Phone listing "jaqdboxingnc.icu" Cust Service) On the same tracking # I got the same info but USPS waiting in California.
