    Default Estate Sale finds

    Ive been a collector for a long time, but recently started hitting up Estate Sales in the area as something to do in my free time. Ive made some pretty cool finds so far. In the last month, i have found: an M1 front seam swivel bale helmet (painted dark blue?) pair of boots from Korean war, a foot locker from Pearl Harbor, a 1943 Navy Life preserver, 2 First Cavalry patches, some pins, a large bag that i have no idea what it actually held, a WW1 dougboy helmet and a WWI US bugle. I dont think i have spent more than $120 on all of it. If anyone has any insight on what i found or questions, feel free! Ive attached some photos.

    Local papers, there are some online estate sale sites that sometimes will have pictures before the sale, and craigslist. The addresses are usually given out a day or two before the actual sales.

    Slow week for estate sales because of the holiday. Did manage to pick up a couple medals on the cheap, i think they are pretty cool.

    Had a good week at the estate sales. Picked up a US bayonet and a Japanese bayonet (pics to come) as well as some dog tags and a giant, WWII era US 48 star flag to use in my display.
