Collectors

Since our US military section is in the abyss!

Thought I would start this thread on US bullion patches and items!

I always thought stuff was beautiful!

I have a weakness for this stuff!

I have put in collectors corner for your pleasure!

Please show your stuff and talk about it!

Love Army Air Corp and China Burma!!

Beautiful bullion embroidery.

Here is some nice bullion embroidery found on an identified USN Naval Engineer Officer grouping that I acquired from the estate of a local collector. This set includes his Naval Academy uniforms as well as some of his later uniforms from between the wars. This fellow shows the sleeve insignia for an Engineer who builds wharves and docks.

Thats a great group! What yr at naval acd!

You know collectors US bullion stuff is still affordable!

I know some is higher due to rarity!

But lets say 50.00 to 100 can get some nice stuff!

CBI is still affordable to collect!

My really good friend collects CBI and next time I go over I will snap some pics!

Its just crazy we can not get any posts or words!

No hurry but plenty of stuff to talk about and show!

I like ww2 but US history has lots of eras!

Lots of material to enjoy!

WW2,Cival war,Korea,Vietnam, etc, etc!

COLLECTORS CORNER WILL BE GLAD TO SHOW IT AND TALK ABOUT IT!!!!!

How about Vietnam lighters!

Its your forum so talk and show your interests!

But don't come over here and post dumb sh!t and kill a good thread!

Thanks

This fellow was an Infantryman in WWI and decided to change branches in 1919. He went to the Naval Academy in 1920 so the NA uniforms date from that time period while the later uniforms and accouterments are from his service in the 1920s-1930s. All marked to him and still very nice bullion work at that time.

I am also interested in US Constabulary and US Forces Austria uniforms. Here are some bullion USFA post WWII occupation insignia made in Austria circa 1946.

ORPO,

Those Austrian Constabulary pins are great. I've see German and have a Life Magazine about them in Germany, but never seen Austrian. Thanks

I likeArmy Air Corp! Uniforms! Pinks and green!

I want to do on A2 jackets,flight stuff etc!

Anything related!

Over the yrs things get buried in threads on forums and lost to collectors!


Its wierd what collectors collect that are vet bringbacks!

Thats why Collectors Corner will share the treasures!

Mystuff! Things I took pics of at friends house,shops I went to check out,shows that I went to.


WW2 was a time capsule of vet goodie bring backs!


A2 jackets and how to preserve and of course the real things!


Just 1 of my A2


Bat Out of Hell! Just like Meat Loafs song!!!!


We all like to look at stuff!

I hope you will enjoy!

Scarfs are always nice! Some are private purchase and some are not!

This last A-2 back shown is A.B McCrearry USNR

Worn on sleeves and nice belly bands! Found at flea market!

A 2 jackets many times have worn out cuffs and belly waist material shot!

They can be replaced!

Many of the guys war them after war and kept them in trunks of car!

They wore them to death!

Rot is also something to watch for!

Inside liners took a beating!

So nice Vern! Quality stuff!


I have a question for collectors

Any one see the 1 shot pistol Pilots carried and gold coins in case they get shot down!


Blood Chits!

I saw a 1 shot pistol made in Cleveland a couple yrs ago and my friend bought it for collection!

It was not great condition wise but real! They have to be tough finds!

Maybe Vern has seen!

Gold coins? Anyone or add info!


Blood Chits! I might have a pic!



Tanker


Its your fault for showing that A-2 beauty!


I am now on a mission to show cool stuff!


Many pics will follow!


Guy even had ww2 shoes!

Here is an opened one with some contents missing. Collectors like unopened specimens though. Contents can be verified by xray when sold.
