Thanks to Rarepatchman on eBay there are a few really neat pieces in this United States block. The one getting the most attention is the OSS SACO US Naval Group jacket patch. The other one is an Allied Mission To Observe The Greek Elections shoulder insignia. Some of you may prefer to look left and bid on the original nose art photo for the B17 named the SEQUATCHIEE.

You can't go wrong with a German infantry officer hat or the helmets that are included in this block. Like most issues of the Hot Finds there are several daggers that have poked their way into the the top of the listings.

We can only hope the ritual suicide knife listed below didn't have to serve it's purpose. This one looks pretty clean so my consistence doesn't bother me including in this block of auctions featuring items from many different countries.

The US 2nd Corps helmet looks very clean and will make a really nice pick up for some collector when it ends tomorrow. All of these listings are from the WWI category and are among the highest running auctions with bids in the category.

To close out the last day of Spring Break we are watching a really great documentary called Apocalypse which is a 6 part series on WWII. It's on Netflix and by the end of the day we will have made it through 3 episodes. Check it out if you have not seen it yet.

There are some great American auction listings today in the Hot Finds. My favorite is the Airborne Infantry patch and I'm not alone. It's up to $800 with 19 bids so far.

When you watch these documentaries you understand how there are so many vet bring backs from the war. One video I watched said there were an estimated 42 million deaths between military and civilians in the European theater.

The auctions in this block include some hot picks from the other countries that took part in the war. Click to see some of the best live auctions in the category.

The picks in this block feature the ones in the WWI category that are getting the most bids. Click on any of these links to see what's going for top money.

WWII_mar_21

This week we are counting down until Spring Break.  Even with vacation around the corner you can depend on your Hot Finds editor to get out issues on time twice a week.

There are several uniforms and insignia in today's
issue of the newsletter. These listings are pretty regularly featured in the Hot Finds as they typically get great bids and do well on eBay.

Top German listings are included in this block including uniform parts, bayonets and more.

The final WWII block in the newsletter features items from Japan, Italy, and other countries from corners of the world that were part of the war. The auctions featured here have a lot of bids and are doing well.

The auctions in WWI are featured in this block which is a smaller category but has a lot of crossover.

For some reason March has been a really good month in my antique mall booth. I guess with the weather turning the snow birds are heading back north.  Both of my booths site along I-95 have seen sharp increases in action.  Whatever the reason I'm happy about it.

WWII_jan_21

As I said in the opening uniforms are especially popular in today's issue. There are several sprinkled in this block along with odd pieces from M1 rifles and helmets getting bids today.

I don't know if its a selling strategy or not but the buy that has the officer tunic listed below has some interesting photos. You might think that the background should be plain jane. But you can clearly see in his photos that he has a lot of other stuff in the background. Maybe He is taking offers on that stuff off eBay?

Well as an eBay seller myself I got my 1099 tax form emailed to me today. As you likely know anyone doing more than $20k in PayPal sales during a calendar year can expect to get one of these. Trust me the IRS is checking too. One year I under-reported by accident and even though it was just a few dollars off they reminded me about it. :)

There are some nice German items in this WWI block. The Iron Cross on the left has almost fifty bids and is nudging over $400.
