Always a Marine: Reuniting history with a collectible uniform (5/24/08)
Veteran in Guam just before Okinawa invasion.My favorite antiques and collectibles tell a story. It’s been my experience that unearthing the story is more rewarding than the challenge of obtaining the item. My most recent “story” began at the Hastings, Nebraska military collectibles show in March 2008. I had just set up my dealer table and started walking the floor to see what other dealers brought to sell. More >>


Militaria And Barbecue: Kansas City Show Review (5/19/08)
M40 Single Decal w/ tropical camo liner I’ve attended the KC Military Show for over a decade and I cannot think of a time where I left the venue empty handed. Admittedly, this time I tried my best not to purchase anything because I just bought a WWII 2nd Bn. Ranger uniform group and I did not want to test my wife’s generosity with more purchases this month. More >>

Civil War Collectibles Part II (5/12/08)
Yesterday I was in Gettysburg, and looking at all the examples of the best of the Civil War memorabilia made me thirsty to get back in the antique treasure hunting race. Taking a little time off made my competitive passions even greater and truly opened my eyes. More >>


Civil War Collectibles (5/10/08)
Very Rare Kentucky OfficerIt’s been a fabulous few days in Baltimore. We visited three ships and a submarine in the harbor. But, the highlight of the day was when a Mexican sailing ship pulled into dock with all the sailors in their white military uniforms. The officers had chests full of medals and you could see their national pride. More >>

A Clandestine Army: A Book Review (4/30/08)

A Flick of Cold Steel… (4/30/08)
My 11 inch Italian stiletto with sliding bolster and real horn grips.My earliest recollection of wanting to own a switchblade came after seeing the film The Outsiders, where the character Johnny Cade (played by Ralph Macchio) uses a lever-lock switchblade to defend himself during a fight scene with rival “Socs” (short for socialites). The camera cuts to Johnny Cade on ground, then zooms to his hand as he discretely draws his blade from his jean pocket. More >>


Striking Gold at the Hastings Military Collectibles Show (4/30/08)
A wonder display of Vietnam era As I loaded my car early Friday morning, I was relieved to see that it had only snowed an inch or so the night before. While I was in college, there were four consecutive years the Hastings Nebraska Militaria Show was canceled due to blizzard conditions. Show co-promoter Mike Bockman was beginning to think the Lord was trying to send him a message. More >>
