    Thanks for the responses, everyone!

    I want to try to sell the canteen/cup/ spork combo. Would anyone be willing to help? I'm not exactly familiar with selling militaria...

    Got these today. I already promised the 9th airforce patch to a fellow teacher I work with. Are they WW2? Are they worth anything?

    Thanks Ade, that's awesome! How can you tell they're British made?

    Are they worth much?

    Hi, it is down the felt construction and the embroidery. They are desirable, as is all foreign made US insignia, but I am very out of touch on values. It is over 20 years since I collected US kit.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Got these today! The patches and pins came from a customer who did a clean out of a junk shop that went out of business. The WW2 vintage ammo I got from my local gunshop!



    Master Sgt?




    The patch on the right came in yesterday. Patch on the left came in today!




    This thing has a great patina... too bad the pin part broke off.




    RUPTURED DUCKS! I've always wanted one!




    This civil defense pin is pretty cool! Has a screw back...


    Award Incentives Inc. NYC


    The man at the local gun shop opened up a whole "spam can" of this stuff for me... I guess I got lucky! I only stopped in by chance to pick up a birthday gift for a friend!




    It's marked WCC '43, but box said it was repackaged in 1944!

    Holy cow Giz, by the time youve finished collecting all this gear youll have enough money invested to start buying top end items, are those .30s live or inert

    The .30 carbine ammo is live! I'm almost tempted to shoot it this weekend with my girlfriend... :P

    Can anyone tell me anything about the parachute jump wings?

    I've started to sell some stuff off... this is a new thing for me, so I'm going slow!

    Have you put any up for sale via the forum, im sure there would be someone who would like the chance to own some of it, i dont know how common it is to get live authentic dated ammo in the states but its pretty damn rare here, unless its easy to get i would suggest keep it all together

    In a couple of hours I can tell you about the wings - when I'm home.
