If anyone is interested in being my eyes on the ground at the SOS and keep a look out for my wanted items I would be grateful. I would provide my "short list" and what I would pay.

 

Thanks,

My first time and bringing a friend for his first time. I’m so excited I haven’t been able to sleep since I booked the hotel. Looking for great Chemical Warfare Service items, specific NY civil war regiments items, and damn good deals if I can find any.

I'm the table helper for unclegrumpy and on the other side of our tables are Bobby R, KASTAUFFER, and Frank Smith (and formerly Tom Lane, RIP). If you're interested in medals, or the really cool uniform/cloth items that unclegrumpy brings, stop by and say "hi". I think we're all in row H or somewhere near there.

 

Counting down the days - soon to be hours - to get on the road!

This will be my 12th year attending SOS. As time goes on I'm enjoying it more every year.

 

The first few years I was in big hurry to get in door in fear I would miss out on the good stuff. I've come to realize there is so much good stuff everywhere, the dealers can't possibly find it all before doors open. Every year, usually late on Friday or Saturday I find stunning items that 100s or even 1000s of people have walked by.

 

One year on the 2nd day I found a mint Winchester M1 Garand all original parts brought home by vet and no arsenal marks. Another year as I was walking out of show on last day and found a stunning privately engraved fully documented USMC Silver Star grouping for action on Iwo Jima. Last year I found a documented SKS and rare WWII USMC patches.

 

Now I slow down, take my time, visit with the dealers, talk to the vets and take it all in. I've yet to ever leave the SOS with any money left in my pocket.

Exactly. There are folks willing to stand in line to get in, but I havent had a problem spending plenty of money having a leisurely breakfast and avoiding the line. Sure, there are always legendary stories of guys selling things at bargain basement prices and sell the contents of their table prior to the doors opening...but Im realistic and figure tarbridge will probably buy those long before I find them anyway...so Im much more relaxed about the whole thing. :D;)

 

And yes, some of my best funds have been a couple days into the show...so you just never know...theres always something for everyone!
