  6. Fantastic! I not a militariana collector but this is really cool. I would not restore it either; you risk affecting its value and collectability for many people. Great find. Price seems good too.
  7. I stopped by the PEZ visitor center in Orange, CT on Monday. Just did a little shopping. Did not have time for a full tour experience. They have some cool president series sets that I wanted to buy bu...
