You can still find Historic items on EBay!!!


Recommended Posts

Found on EBay. Couldn’t believe this wasn’t already in someone’s collection. Named  to, at that time, Commander Samuel Nobre Moore when he was leading Destroyer Division 21, where he organized the Neutrality Patrols for the New England area after was broke out in Europe. He later was promoted to Captain and was killed in action when he went down with his ship, the USS Quincy,  at the Battle of Savo Island In August of 1942. A well known battle where we took some heavy losses .

Everything on eBay is overpriced garbage. Everyone stay away!

Some of the best pieces in my collection...heck...the vast majority of the best pieces in my collection of come from eBay.

That's a really lovely find.

 

I agree with the rest, there are still great things to be found in eBay. i've had a lot of luck in the past with generic searches. By this I mean searching key words that a seller who knows little about militaria might use in their descriptions. I've turned up some really nice pieces that way.

Same here.

I'd say 95% of mine came from ebay. Some of the items are really unique.

Just takes time to look.
