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

We are canceling the OCTOBER 24th show. I have rescheduled the show for APRIL 17 2021 tentatively.

Please pass the word on to friends and customers who may have wanted to attend. If
  8. Plan on being at both!.....Nice work Bill & Gang.
  9. 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.

  15. Agree most look post CW with a raised shield. "I" officer button looks CW period. Albert's button book is a good . He gives Rarity ratings not values. Along with it you should use a military button backmark book. Warren Tice put out a great book in the ninties "Uniforms Buttons of the United States 1776-1865" in 1997 with a little better photography, date ranges and backmark info. The relic site cited above is also a good starting place Civilwarbuttons.com is another great site. Both guys have been at it a long time. Finally take em to a Military/CW show.....have a dealer put his hand
