Halloween Warning Order and POST your finds


Recommended Posts

As I posted earlier Ocala GW sells them (old ones not modern camo) to a "special" group of dealers.  A friend of mine took me in the back room a couple of years ago to see a WWI Uniform,  I was not permitted to try and buy it.  Richard

Wanted: WWI ID'ed USMC Green Wool Uniform and ANYTHING documented to my Dad's Iwo Jima outfit: 21st Marines 3rd Div.

Items marked "Marquet, Marquett, or Marquette"

Welp I did my yearly Halloween goodwill and thrift store run and came up empty. I saw some modern military uniforms, but nothing older then the 90's. 

 

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised with the advent of the internet if Goodwill funnels off items they find as more "desirable" elsewhere. I did peek into the back rooms of a few and there were basically mountains of clothes so who knows maybe there was something in there. I'm guessing most of the stuff I'm looking for is just too old to find it's way into goodwill or a thrift store that often.

Well folks it was a valiant year! We tried and we succeeded! No matter how few or many items (both rare and common) were found, we were out there looking! I applaud you for your efforts. I will try and get my topic up earlier nest year, so that we can all share in our hobby. Until then, keep noodling into those dark crevasses and sifting those rocks. Gems and nuggets are still waiting to be found!

Well, I finally found something military on Saturday at Goodwill!  It sure looks real, but was so small, child size?  As much as a temptation it may have been, I left it for someone else to grab.  Glad some of you hit paydirt. Good hunting next year everyone!
