OSS SF wing/SAARF group/OSS Chinese Commando group

Recommended Posts

I lucked into some really nice patches last week. Well, a little luck plus making contact with other collectors.
 

I obtained a very nice SF wing; a great little SAARF group; and a very cool Chinese Commandos group, including a blood chit.

 

The SF wing I thought I may find someday but the SAARF patches I didn’t believe I’d ever find. I’m really excited about all of them.

You have done extremely well with your quest to pick up some amazing insignias. Congratulations on your acquisitions. I really appreciate your comment about getting great pieces like this because of the contacts that you have developed. It seems that so often, collecting militaria (especially elite units) is like a big contest to see who can have the most and the best. I have repeatedly told younger collectors that instead of treating other collectors as competition, or the enemy, develop relationships with them so that you can appreciate their finds. Every once in a while, somebody will find something for you that you would never find yourself. You're teaching that right now!

Thanks. Yup, I’ve said it before. There’s no way I have most of my insignia without getting to know reputable dealers and collectors. There are several dealers and/or collectors I feel fortunate to have on my phone (maybe they don’t feel as fortunate, though) and I pester them a few times a month.

 

I met them at shows, which everyone should go to if they can, and right here on this board.

 

All of the new items I got last week were from the lead of a collector friend.

 

I’m fortunate to have had very good experiences with other collectors thus far.
