Is this the thread that will be used the way last year's was, to post on-the-ground goodies for us all to see? Or will a new thread be made for those purposes?


***Items from unit called 8th Field Depot***

[Most frequently-sought unit because of family connection]

 

Intact ["out of the woodwork"] Marine Corps combat groups from WWII.

 

Unique items signed by many Marines from one unit, or inscribed with combat history.

 

Marine Corps valor recipient items.

 

Souvenirs taken by Marines with exceptional background and/or unique stories/documentation.

 

Marine Ship Detachment items from major naval engagements and those that warrant stars to ETO ribbon.

This will be my first show. Can't wait! I plan on spending as much money as I can! Hopefully I will find some tough to get WWII US Uniforms or groups.

 

Will be bringing a few things I have stashed away and havnt shared much. Including a brother uniform group, one of whom was 101st with some spectacular patch work!

 

Already took Kammo Mans advice in another thread and invested in some nice hiking shoes for the week. Breaking them in as we speak!


Always looking for named items from Detroit area Vets!

Looking forward to my first SOS. At this point I am guessing I won't hear anything back about a waiting list table, but hopefully one will be available on setup day. If I do end up with a table I should have some good VN pieces.

This will be my 20th SOS. I always find something... or more often several somethings to bring home.

 

I have tables in the very middle of the room having fought my way to a good strategic spot over the years. Frankly, I don't have much to sell this year so I am in a buying mode. My expectations are high and I have a want list to carry around with me.

Any indicators of whether or not this year will be German-centric or US-centric? I'm hoping for the latter. Last year's show was really eye opening and I'm hoping to find cool Quartermaster goodies. Hopefully this year the universal response to that will not be, "why do you collect that?!"


WANTED: I collect materials of any age related to the US Army Quartermaster Corps and from the long-defunct Commissary / Subsistence Corps. Anything goes and it doesn't have to be identified to a vet. If it's weird or unusual, please PM me! ASMIC #5650
