It came to me through another member, with only collar emblems (and trousers, not shown). Not sure if the emblems were his. I paid to have his miniatures mounted with current strikes at the PX, and printed out the neck drape and planchent

Brig,

GREAT display and collection. I'm glad you chose to share it with the rest of us so we can also enjoy the fruits of your labors. You have an impressive collection... esp love the pre-WW1 officers dress paddles with EGAs.... Wow... Don't see those too often.

That is a museum, in every sense of the word...thanks very much for letting us in on it!

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

Tim,

 

OUTSTANDING MARINE!

 

Your collection Is impressive for a life time collector and you have only been at it for just over a decade!!!. The next 11 years will go by in a blink of an eye and you will continue to add to this Very Impressive Museum Quality Collection. I have personally only seen less than a handful of other personal EGA Collections that can match yours. Very Well Done!

 

THANK YOU for posting the photos.

 

Semper Fi,

John

...and just for fun, my collection 11 years ago...

Amazing collection. You may not be able to answer this, but is there one piece that stands out above the rest for you?

Too many to list. 4 of the 6 uniforms displayed I had to entirely restore ribbon/device one, the officer dress blues I had to hand make two foreign decorations as I spent over a year trying to find Viking Kwikset versions and came up empty, and I still need a Marine Corps match badge to finish it off. The second compartment of the wooden shelf they stand on...all of those albums and both 3" binders are his, as well. I can't narrow it down to one particular piece!

Thanks John, the best part is it became entirely self-funding about 6 years ago...I sold/traded most of the more common stuff (beside EGA's and expert badges) and then from made the hobby fund the hobby. I've had to pass on some killer stuff over the years using this policy, but it makes it much easier to justify financially when nothing comes out of your income

 

I know the EGA collections you refer to, and it'll take another 11 years to catch up. There are some killer EGA collections out there
