A gun dealer in Illinois has a large old collection on consignment which he is auctioning on GUNBROKER.com. He does business as CANDU.
He decribes the collection so;
“This is part of a large collection of historical military items. The owner of the collection had been collecting since 4 years of age. He lived near a military base during his childhood years. This collection is quite large with thousands of pieces, approximately 80% U.S. with some rare, experimental and one of a kind items. Many items have been acquired from the Aberdeen Proving Grounds as well”.
Some of these items I have not seen for sale since the CHICAGOLAND show run by the late Bob Strauss 40 years ago.
I am not collecting and so am not buying BUT would like to know who the collection belonged to.
Many collectors just pass away without notice. That is a shame.
