Provenance Matters For Military Collectors

WWII sept 30 2014Today's Hot Finds has some great pieces of vintage military items with lots of history behind them. I hope you enjoy clicking through what I've found.

Those of you with eagle eyes will spot that the G1 leather flight jacket below is not technically a WWII era issue. The seller states that was owned by a WWII ace and this was the last jacket he wore in his service.

It is just fascinating to find a photo album listed on eBay where the seller includes all the pictures. It's like you get the joy of window shopping even if you have no interest in purchasing the album. Check out the nice album below to see dozens of neat pictures from a German soldier.

In this block I've got another book featured. This one doesn't include as many pictures but is a flight log from a British pilot during the 1944-46 time period.

We all know that including a little provenance helps sell an items in a military category. So I was impressed that the seller of the USMC dress coat was able to take a name written inside the garment and trace it on ancestry.com to the owner over 100 years later. Now that's cool!

I got this issue out earlier in the day and I hope that for many of you that helps you get a chance to click through everything.
