I have finished posting John's collection. There are a few items that are not BeVo but were included because they were in the original thread. I believe that this is one of the best,if not the best, BeVo eagle collection out there.John was a student of the BeVo weave eagle and gave his knowledge freely. RIP Johnny!
My thanks to Fred for posting these and to John's family for allowing them to be posted here.
John's untimely death was a big loss to the collecting community.

Very comprehensive collection, thanks for posting.
Sad news, he had a very nice collection.
An oustanding focused collection!

As Fred says that Johnny's collection is one of the best known BeVo collection, perhaps even the best out there, i thought that this thread should be sticked in order to help all of us if needed...
Dont forget to click on photos to enlarge them...
