A 15 year old's Mini Closet Display...

Recommended Posts

So I recently cleaned out my closet (which was a ton of work) and threw away a bunch of stuff. I didnt really like the way I had all my militaria stuff, and I didnt have enough room to store it all in my room. After I cleaned out my closet I realized I had a lot of room to work with... The only bad thing is there isnt any more room for any new M1 helmets (what I mainly focus on)! Oh and also I share the room with my coin collection, but I keep it all in a fire safe so you shouldn't be seeing to much of it...

 

Enjoy the pics!

 

Looking in to the closet from outside you can see where I plan to hand some uniforms as I currently do not have mannequins.

To the left you can see a simple shelf I have put some misc. stuff on, including both US coins and German/Nazi coins and paper money

Looking down from the shelf you can see where I have temporarily place my M1917A1 helmet and my medical field manual, along with a bunch of coin books lol.

Looking to the right, you can see the bulk of the display. All packs are WW2 dated, the liner on the far left is Korean war 31st infantry 932nd field artillery.

I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

I'm 58 years old, own a house, and you have more display room than I do! Congrats on a nice collection.

I can't wait until you get a bigger closet! Nice job! When I was 15 this stuff was so hard to find it was frustrating but when you did find it - it was priced right and the glow lasted a long time!


And I looked, and Behold a Pale Horse:

And his name that sat upon him was death,

and Hell followed with him.

Great collection. I wish I had been bright enough at 15 to collect WW2 items. The stuff was everywhere. When you're my age those items you have will cost dearly. I remember M1 carbines in a box in the sporting goods section of a department store in my area. I'll bet they were $25. or less. Although, at the time $25. was not a pittance. I also remember the long Garand bayonets at an Army/Navy store in bins for maybe $5. I bought 1 - I wish now I had bought 100.
