Bugme Collection


Recommended Posts

My collection video from a while back. Yes, I realize I only caught part of a few helmets. What can I say, videography is not my strong point.

Wow, that is one impressive collection. As you were panning I was waiting for you to get to the guy playing the piano. Unless you were playing the piano and filming.

That's a really great (and tasteful!) display, I really like those cases, and the lighting. Did you make them yourself? Also, is there a story/identification on the that 11th Airborne Chaplain lid? I really like the look of it.

In retrospect,  I should have made it a silent movie. It really is quite awful.

The display cases are commercial purchases, I am not that talented. The A/B lid is  not ID'd and is "storyless" but, I can make up a good one if you'd like. ;)

Over the years we all have listened to fun odd music !
The collection sings it’s own song that’s number 1 on the usmf charts

Is hoarding some sort of sin?  Maybe a lessor sin when its chaplain related items? 😄

 

Beautiful collection, wonderfully displayed, well done, and thank you for sharing.

Thanks for all the compliments guys. Some of those in the video have since moved on to other collectors and a few new ones have been added but, still the same general layout.
