Guess what ??  i went scrolling through the pics to see if there were any USAAF items Scott ??? :-[

  There are some Carl, but sadly nothing really to write home about... One really nice named set to a B-24 guy and your basic pinks and greens and 4 pockets. The best USAAF items were some of the Womens items like the flight nurse sets.    Scott

Scott,

I just broke my jaw... It's your fault....

When I saw the items (SS helmet especially) I wasn't prepared and my lower jaw hit the desk and shattered...

Thanks Buddy, thanks a lot.... ;)

Stunning is all I can say

    Gosh Smitty I am not sure if there is an old retired soldier/current museum worker Purple Heart in the regs ;D. Perhaps we need to petition for one. Thanks as always for the encouragement. It was a great year for sure and topping a non messed with SS helmet will be a tough one, though they also gave me two MG 08/15s.    Scott

Scott,

After sipping liquids through a straw I am slowly recovering from the initial shock of all the great finds you showed us..

Just kidding about the jaw of course.. Simply incredible finds..

Well done
