    Hello, Great weekend for estate picking!!!
    I found these items at a local estate saturday and thought I would share them with every one. Did not manage to arrive at estate sale till an hour after it had started and I figured that all the goodies would have dissapeared. I was told by estate company that the first person through door had purchased every thing so I thought I was right on this . Well I ended up deciding to look through house in hopes of finding something and found myself in the master bedroom looking through the rather large[and full] closets. Amazingly, at back of closet I found a 3rd army artillery officer laison jacket with bullion wings and london makers tag. I also found a pilots A-4 leather jacket etc. After having found the uniform etc, I decided to pay for the items and haul them to my truck. After putting the items away I decided that maybe I should give the closet another going over.
    Boy was that the right call! Digging in bottom of the closet revealed both an army officer sword and luft dagger.Click image for larger version.

    I would not feel bad! You are buying it from the estate company! If not you then someone else would have bought it! Enjoy your items as the veteran who brought these back would have probably wanted you to! The children/relatives did not want these items (who knows what the situation was) that's why I always feel kind of sad when I go to estate sales, as you dig through the stuff, it's like reading a page of their life! So far i've been to 7 or 8 and 4 of those were veterans that have passed.

    Has to be the bargain of the year. Well done. You paid the prices asked, no shame in that.

    Cheers, Ade.
