I am neither a dealer nor an appraiser, and National ARC policy asks that I not give values of memorabilia. In any case, I would only be able to guess!
NOTE: If you email me with a question, please be sure a reply will get through any filtering software you have on your computer. (or include a phone number) Sometimes I try to reply and the message comes back...and I've no other way to contact you! Also, be sure to put something in the Subject line...there is a virus going around that sends out emails with no subject...I don't open these.
If you only have one or two items to identify, you can contact me by email with a description and I'll get back to you.

National Pins from the 1940's (WWII)
Help ME identify pins! Here are some pictures of pins that I don't know "Who Done It?" Do you? 01/31/13
As new pins are issued (or "newly" discovered) I try
to help people keep up. These pages show pins and idcodes not in the current edition
of the Pin Guide.
To help you identify what you already have (or might be looking for), I have posted photographs of many of these ARC posters from 1910 - 1950 along with other relevant information There are also pictures of window stickers, counter cards, worker ID tags, postcards and some other "fun" stuff!
If you have other paper items which is not on these links, I may still be able to provide information on it. Email me by email with a picture (.jpg preferred) or the text (from upper left to lower right), and such other information you can, and I'll see what "blanks" I can fill in for you.
Some WWII Era Uniforms
Exclusively for American Red Cross units or other official groups:
I maintain a Uniform Lending Closet so that any unit can borrow uniforms
for a special event or display. Uniforms cover different eras.
For more information, click
I've added pictures of my patch collection (and a few
from friends) to the web. Click
Here. These are mostly National issues, but there are three groups
of "locals." There are more of them "out there" in most of the categories.
