Uncle Sam’s Best On eBay

March 31, 2010

In putting together this Top-5 list I had to cut out items that also ranked in the Top-5 for the entire WWII category.  Using those guidelines you can still find 5 items that sold last week in the United States subcategory that scored over $1,500 in bidding on eBay.  The lead-off man is an A-2 jacket in excellent shape.  The pilot spent some time in the China/Burma theater based on the seller description.  But the real interesting sale was the M3 knife.  This auction was sitting at $1,000 with thirty seconds to go when things got crazy.  Within the last 1/2 minute of the auction sniper bids came in from 8(!) different bidders which doubled the sale price and landed this as the #2 item on this list.  The USMC pin proved that its always good to have an insurance bid coming in over the top.  The winning bidder was sitting pretty when a sniper bid came in $750 above his bid.  However, following the old Scout adage to "Be Prepared" he had his own snipe locked and loaded that carried the day.
