I was previously explaining my buying techniques earlier in a closed thread and here is a perfect example from this morning. A random Craigslist search for the key word military got me these patches for 20 bucks after I simply asked "How much for the patches" He also had the ship cruise books but they were in rough shape and wanted 100- for the three. So rather than explain that the patches were worth a lot more than 20- and the books much less than 100- (in good condition) I simply paid the 20- and took my patches home. Very nice indeed.Click image for larger version.
