    My 2020 SOS Haul

    This year the best part of the show was seeing many friends and fellow collectors that I only see once or twice a year at the SOS and/or MAX.
    I still came home with some goodies, but a good bit smaller than my traditional "haul" due to a few reasons.
    Picked up a really nice Heer M43 Infantry NCO tunic, a nice Wilhelm Hobacher Luftwaffe Flak Badge, a Regiment General Göring visor cap to go with my tunic I acquired a couple years ago, a really nice Afrika cuff title, a pair of shoulder straps to Schützen-Regiment 14, and a Heer enlisted parade belt and buckle with belt stamped to the 8. Kompanie of Infanterie-Lehr Regiment. It is also named to a "D. Fichtel". Might be worthy of a research attempt.

      Great choices, well done !
      Yes I'd love to get out there too one day, the range of items, prices and deals to be done , and catching up with other collectors must be fantastic.

        Thank-you Chay and eubank.

        Yes, with 2000 tables there is A LOT of militaria for sale. I usually attend Thursday afternoon, all day Friday, and most of Saturday with a late Saturday afternoon or early evening return flight. Even then, it is a challenge to see everything. Especially because I spend a lot of time socializing and catching up with collector friends and making new ones.

        There are usually many collectors and some dealers from the U.K. and mainland Europe.

            I'd love to go to one of these shows, but would never get anything back into Australia. Another member and I were lamenting that there are no such shows here in AU
            Why is patience a virtue, why can't hurry the f*** up be a virtue.

              Hi Todd,

              As said before: Very nice M43. Sorry I did not get to meet you at the show - as I am pretty sure we like the same kind of items and I always enjoy your posts. Maybe next year.

              Cheers, Tom

                Hi Tom,

                Sorry I did not meet you as well. If you attend the MAX, please check for me at Gus Villarreal's tables - same at the SOS.

                  Hi Todd,

                  No MAX for me - I prefer the SOS and am limited to one US show a year. Let us try and meet up at the next SOS!

                  Cheers, Tom

                    Sounds like a plan. See you next SOS sir.

                      Very nice items! I love the tunic, could we see a picture of the lining, just to drool a bit more?

                        Thank-you Sander! Missed you at the SOS, but we know your absence was for a very good reason.

                        I looked through the photos I snapped after getting home from the show and my apologies but there is unfortunately only one lining shot. I can take some in the future, but at the moment the tunic is still on a torso form.

                              Love those S14 straps Todd, and that P depot is actually a rare bird!

                              Good seeing you and I'm glad my straps went to a good home
