D-Day Paratrooper Groupings


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have never been to the SOS. Could someone give me just a rough estimate on how much something like a 101st D-Day veteran grouping would costs at the SOS? I am really just trying to get an idea as to how much it would cost to purchase a great grouping like that at a show. Don't really have too many shows or conventions like that where I am so any advice on where to purchase authentic pieces like these would be great.


Thank you.

Looking for anything related to WWII ETO gliders and pilots, uniforms, photos, etc. I am also looking for 8th AF B-17 crew uniforms and gear.
