Okay, got it figured out for sure now. Sorry for the clunky and duplicate posts. I will finish off by showing a few close-ups. I will get around to taking some better overall shots in the next week or two. It is tough to show a whole display case and get the detail on what is inside, but these might help. Kevin

  Kevin that is a beautiful room and collection you have! Love the helmets and hats, of course the uniforms are none too shabby either! Glad the picture posting worked out and I look forward to seeing more ( I like to "borrow" display ideas). Scott

While not my area of collecting it`s nonetheless very impressive, I love the display cabinets, very nice.
I don`t care to belong to the sort of club that accepts people like me as members.

ok.... im really impressed. how many years have you been at this?
in the beginning of change, the patriot is a scarce, brave, hated and scorned man. when his cause succeeds, the timid will join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Well, I have collected longer than I would like to admit. I have collected for twenty nine years, but most of that time it was pretty much anything pre WWII. I still have that collection, but five years ago I ran across a Span Am USMC uniform, and got the bug bad. I consolidated all previously collected Marine material, and since that time, have pretty much exclusively collected Marine related collectibles.
