Just posted some nice items out of the South Carolina museum group I brought back yesterday. This may well be our last postings before the Wheaton Show next weekend (4/29) and Mansfield the week after (5/6-7). We hope to see you at one or both of the shows. We will have anice cselection of canister rounds at Mansfield. These are very difficult to ship safely so not currently listed here.

We continue to have occasional issues with emails sent using the buy me button on individual listings. If you do not receive a response back quickly, please email or call us directly via the information provided under the contacts tab. Thank you.
