Nice stuff, that sweetheart stuff has certainly risen in interest. Years ago it used to be the dregs of the hobby, but now with the release of several good books on it, and with the dwindling presence of "actual" militaria at shows & flea markets, it has become a highly sought after commodity.

Also a good way guys to get your wife/girlfriend/life partner at least somewhat interested in the hobby!

Nice to see this kind of stuff as it gives another perspective of the sacrifices that wartime brings.
Its also great to see that you and your wife seem to share some of the same interest.That must make collecting all the more enjoyable and interesting.
Thanks for posting and its always good hearing your responses on this forum.

Thanks Jerry and Dean for the nice comments and enjoying the album. I think I was buying and saving sweetheart jewelry before anyone wanted it! When ever my parents went on house calls we asked for all types of items and in the early years everything was in abundance. SA daggers were bought for $25 dollars, gold was $35 dollars an ounce, $65 dollars for colt .45s and on and on. It seemed every time we got a box of jewelry my dad would say here take this and put it with your other military stuff. About the time 1980 rolled around silver and gold was high and I had almost 35 troy pounds of sterling air corp wings and marksmanship badges and gobs of sweetheart items. Carolyn makes it easy for me because we like the same stuff. We miss the really big hitter antique markets. Oh well sign of the times I guess.
