Hi

 

Well we are still in Louisville packing our bags ready for our flight tomorrow.

 

I am just hoping the snow doesn't mess everything up too much...

 

I have had an amazing trip, no dout the best show in the world, great people, great stuff and a great location.

 

I have managed to pick up some very cool D-day/Normandy groupings, so i am well chuffed.

 

Regards

 

Tom

Where the real SOS action occurs ....swapping medals in the hotel room.

We did the same thing in a room at the Springhill Suites... only it was something more interesting, it was helmets. B)

I think you ought to patent the medals magnet or whatever it is you use to find all these great named medals. Outstanding!

Waiting to see that photo!

It's on Paul's camera and he wasn't supposed to be back in the Netherlands until today so, we'rejust waiting on him to post. However, I'm not sure I want anyone to see my break from U.S. helmets. :o

One of the best things that I did was to meet Hershel W. Williams MOH awarded on IWO JIMA. 3rd Marines I thought that was the best talking to him He was a great man to meet..My friend also had his dog tag,Its picture is on the table below. He could not remember when he lost it or gave it away.He did say he only had one left and was brass like the one my friend had.

What happens in Louisville, stays in Louisville...unless it gets posted on the internet

I just got home and luckily had no weather delays. I regret not taking any photos that can be posted (as Sparty-on mentioned, what happens in Louisville...).

 

For those who did not attend, you have to understand that this show is completely overwhelming and both dealers and attendees are doing their best just to see it all. The photo taking does get lost in the mix. Some dealers do get a bit fussy if you take photos of their tables. I don't know why but that is their right. As Bugme said, you just have to get there to experience it. It's like trying to photograph the Grand Canyon.

 

I will say that I had a blast with the helmet guys and met a bunch of first time SoSers from the forum. Way too many to name but at times, our table seemed like forum HQ. I think Sgtdorango was trying to corner the USMC and Airborne helmet market!

Awesome campaign medals tarbridge! Really like your WWI Silver Star grouping too! Glad everyone had a good time will definitely have to make it there one of these days.

 

Also was there much Coast Artillery stuff for sale?

This is where the thread will get very picture heavy, here are photos of the SOS. My mother wanted to get a look at the show and she took my camera, apparently she got around quite a bit!

 

It was nice to meet USMF members there, I was able to meet many and all were great folks. There were some great items there, I hope these photos can show some of the quality pieces.

 

Here we go:
