  1. At this time the show is listed on Sunday April 11th. Bruce has had to cancel all shows up through end of January. The note below appears on his website: NFGshows.com. We are trying to move forward, but due to the COVID 19 situation, ALL NFG Shows are on HOLD. We will NOT be accepting any applications until restrictions for group gatherings are lifted or amended. Please check back to the Upcoming Shows page regularly for updated information regarding each show. Feel free to call us at 716-542-9929 or email us at guns@nfgshow.com with any questions.
  2. Received this e-mail. Probably given the current Covid 19 environment & direction this is no surprise. Dated 1/9/2021 The Maryland Arms Collectors Association, Inc. is saddened to announce for a second consecutive year that we are have been forced to cancel our “2021 Baltimore Show”. Our Officers, Board of Directors and Show Committee worked tirelessly to forestall what became clear this week that we could not move forward with our 2021 show. From regulations limiting public entry to our show to 250 persons at a time, road blocks for obtaining a permit and local gove
  3. Had this in the pile marked unknown for several years and thought maybe it was time to seek some help. 20.5" long. No marks except the +5 -5 adjustment marks on the eye piece. No indication of country, era or model. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks in advance. Cheers.
  4. Just want to pass on "Job Well Done" to the entire staff of OVMS and to the membership attending this November's show. Tables were full with a wide variety of dealers and items. I found plenty to look at and consider as well as leaving a few things with some new owners. Attendees and dealers appeared to have little issue with the rules and obligations regardless of their personal opinions on the effectiveness of the interventions. The larger room was very much appreciated and the conf ctr. staff very friendly. Thanks to the Robert's Center for that. If you don't attend the "Cornfield" s
  5. Just a reminder of the "Cornfield Show" held at the Robert's Center November 6 & 7, 2020. website: http://www.sosovms.com July was a good & safe show. Let's hope this one is better yet. Cheers.
  6. Just got call/text. Bruce is hoping to get back on track come April 2021..... You can contact Bruce at guns@nfgshows.com for additional information.
  7. Great link....... thank you. Strange things do happen....standing in line at grocery store Friday morning, gent standing in front of me had a "Combat Camera Squadron" cap perched on top his head. Turns out he was USN Lt. Commander during his career and was one of the people participating in the training etc. for these squadrons. Although he wasn't familiar with the WWII units his knowledge of their role was fantastic. Thanks all for your information. Cheers DC
  8. Our thoughts as well. Emerson does a nice job of explaining em collar disk changes post WWII/1951 but gives no indication of a screwback post headgear badge. Thanks for the assist. Cheers
  9. Very much appreciate the ID.....knew I had never seen it before. Thank you.
  10. Haven't seen one with this long threaded post. Marked Gemsco NY. Has one pin but not the other and does not appear it ever had more than one. Help appreciated. Cheers
  11. Any help would be appreciated. Possible Photo Recon. Came with small stack of WWII patches all common. Cheers
  12. Probably no real surprise as it is a very crowded show with little expansion room. See the message below: Hello all I tried to make it happen but it's just not going to work. We are canceling the OCTOBER 24th show. I have rescheduled the show for APRIL 17 2021 tentatively. Will just have to see what the state of the nation is at that time medically, and what the rules are at that time. Pencil it in your calendars and we will stay in close communication. Please pass the word on to friends and customers who may have wanted to attend. If
  13. Plan on being at both!.....Nice work Bill & Gang.
  14. Brian said it well in his comment. The entire OVMS staff & Roberts Center staff did a great job of providing a clean, well organized show under some very "trying" conditions. Those attending should also take credit for what appeared to be a high compliance to the mask wearing requirement, not an easy chore for most of us.
