West Coast Historical Military Collector's Show...May 9, 10 2014

Recommended Posts

My step-father, my friend Bob, and me on the last day of the show....shows like these are great for socializing with other collectors, meeting old friends, and making new ones.

Robert, still trying to digest the picture of yourself in a pair of Crocs. I need to keep my feet firmly planted on the ground. I see the sign for chilled wine and Italian appetizers, now that is class. I will get out there one of these days. Glad to here a good time was had.

 

Ps thanks for posting all of the photos.

We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

It was a display without items for sale on the two main tables. The owners name is Ed Nored, I think that is the spelling.

This show was definitely a good one for my collection.

 

Lately there has been a lot of complaints about the various shows that allow dealer set up early. Contrary to popular belief, all of the wheeling and dealing doesn't happen before the public arrives. Case in point, at this show I did more buying and trading on Saturday than on Friday during setup. I wasn't there Thursday night so I can't speak for that but there were plenty of deals to be had on Friday and Saturday. It actually worked pretty well as I was selling great on Friday and that funded my Saturday acquisitions. I was actually able to pick up 2 extremely rare items on Saturday for very reasonable prices.

 

This was a great show and I for one will continue to attend as long as it goes on.

 

Thanks to the vintage productions team for putting on this event.
