Artillery crossed cannon insignia walks in the door today


Recommended Posts

Out of the blue a guy walks in my shop today wanting to trade for a rifle scope. He pulls out a bag of military items from all branches, and just about every country. Most of it was new and common. He asks what will it take to make the trade? He had nothing I wanted, but he needed the scope. I pulled these along with 5-6 other items out, and made the trade.


Not my area of collecting...................yet :mellow:. As my wife always says to me when I bring something home "Hi, my name is Jon and I'm a collect-o-holic.


I'll enjoy them for a few days, and then find them a new home.
