    Hello All,
    Last week I won an 8th AF DUI. It wasn't in that good of condition, But it was cheap so added it.
    Well the day after as what usually happens, I saw these two go up and decided to grab them
    One is unmarked the other is NS Meyer's marked.
    These are the sellers photo's . They won't arrive until next week.

    Here is the unmarked. Got it for $39.95

    I think I did alright. These will hold me over until I do find a matched set.
    I never thought I would get into these, But You know how that goes

    If it's 8th AF I'm loven it!!

    Congrats Phil. They both look great.

    Typical Murphy's Law scenario. Buy something and them more pop up out of no where
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks Michael,
    I got Murphed!! I hadn't seen one for a long time after I watched one but didn't want to spend the $75 for it. But somebody bought it. So I hopped on the $30 one, BAM! next day, 2 of them are there laughing at me. "You Should Have waited for us"

    Thanks Gent's,
    I can't wait to have these in hand.

    I did post these on USMF in their Distinctive Unit Insignia section.
    Found the guy who bid up the price on me for the Meyer's

    I guess I'll be seeing him again on the Bidding field!!

    I'm new at these, But I think I did ok on the price. Well I hope I did.
    I'm not buying to resell, so a profit isn't in my equation for purchases.

    Great pick ups! I like that the DUI resembles the official patch, don't know much on value (or anything when it comes to DUIs), but I would've paid the same price for them as well they don't seem to pop up often. I also saw the your conversation with the USMF collector that was pretty funny makes you wonder how many times we have bid against people we know.

    Thanks Stephen,
    Every time I lose a bid on something, I'm going between site's to see if somebody post their win and find out who it was who beat me
    But this was a first for me to meet someone who was bidding against me.

    I have to say, It felt good to be the winner this time.
