We'll got in for early unload and did a fair amount of looking. As always there is much to see. Most dealers are not fully set up yet but still plenty to look at. Have seen numerous forum members on the floor but everyone is looking quite intently at the tables so not much discussion this evening. The size of the hall is a bit overwhelming, I need to use visual markers so I know where I have been.

 

Tomorrow will be the kick off. More later.

Some awesome stuff here already and the show hasn't even started. Running into a lot a USMF members, and had a great time tonight talking and seeing some great items. Sadly, my camera stayed in my room. :( I'll have some shots tomorrow.

The show is overwhelmingly big and with day one over, I left with some great items and groupings. There are a LOT of uniforms for sale!

I wish you hadn't said that. I wonder if there's still time for me to sell a kidney and be there by noon tomorrow if I drove nonstop...

Past two days have been good for buying and selling, seen some great pieces and have a nice group to take home. While there is a lot of stuff, and I mean A LOT, much of it is TR and not much in my interest field....but in terms of quality, it is amazing. I will be taking a boatload of photos tomorrow, so hang in there.

 

For those who want to say hello, I am with Robert at tables N-53 (he has a block of tables)

Found this nice leather USAAF with yellow leather star with AN-6530 goggles and A-14 oxygen mask. Also a lot of nice painted bomber jackets. But by far the most unique items I've seen so far have been the tail rudder and wicker seat from a Sopwith Camel.
