As always the Hot Finds has some fun picks from the biggest WWII category for you to choose from. I especially like the pick for today's United States category.

The patch that leads off today's might be familiar to a few of you. Its for the Marine Corps VMF-124 who were known as the Flying Aces in WWII. They saw their first action in 1943 deployed to Guadacanal. One notable achievement was being the first Marine Corps planes to be based on a fleet carrier. That patch will surely bring some $$.

At first sight you will say there shouldn't be a green uniform listed in a German category on eBay. Yes as is sometimes the case sellers will slip an item into the more popular categories trying to get some more publicity. In this case it's a nice Italian tropical uniform that sneaked in but the bidding is over $300 so maybe it worked.

Skipping right past all the Soviet medals let me point to a neat Japanese piece. So the Sub commander listing below is on eBay despite the fact that this officer went down with his boat on 7-12-1944. One can assume that his family had the visor for more formal occasions and it has not made it's way onto the market.

I know in my antique mall booth I can't keep a bugle. So when I saw the sharp one listed below I had to include it in this World War I block.

I spent the morning organizing and cleaning my garage. How many of you need to do that chore!? Have a great week.
