Thanks Sundance and Wake. It’s fun finding stuff out and about on your own. I buy very little to nothing on the net, mainly just from connections and my own digging. I suppose one day soon I will have to start defining my collection but it’s hard leaving cool stuff behind.

Really like the Ordnanct tab on that jacket! Amazing embroidery! Thanks for sharing! Usually they are sloppier than those. Those are beautiful!

If you ever want a custom hand-embroidered (no machine) patch, I'm open to commissions! Pay or trade!

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.

What a great collection of uncommon items! I collect the same way you do. Most of my items are found locally in antique shops, thrift stores, or through local ads on Facebook & Craigslist. Amazing some of the interesting pieces you stumble upon, and it feels more rewarding compared to buying online (not knocking online purchases/sales by any means). 

 

Thanks for sharing!!

On vacation I found a copy of Doughboy to GI that I had been needing and I study it up and walk into a gun shop and see this hanging in the back. He knew it was a good piece and said it came with a certificate and medal from the owner. The names don’t match but I didn’t buy the story. If it wasn’t for the book I would have never known what this was. It has plenty of period patches and some later ones. Still has 4-5 tears and 2 are large but material is still there. Not museum quality but I couldn’t leave it there.cc27a7aa80598ac3942ed49594a99548.jpg

Best civil war group I’ve found in a while. This all came out of the same attic from a picker. A 44th NY Gettysburg man that went on to be an officer in the 43rd US colored troops. At least 1-2 other 43rd guys in album.f16d7b35bed5bc58c95823823302bd28.jpg

Richard Phillips was his name. Wounded at Gettysburg and not too far from my home.

A Marine killed on America’s bloodiest day of the war....October 4th Blanc Mont. Nice photo! 

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.

That's a cool CW grouping!  Thanks for sharing your collection! Really fun to see what others have found lately! Most sales and things are cancelled around here.
