National Gun Collectors Association presents ‘Military and Gun Show’
From press release
Experts are in town looking for rare military items and all types of guns! If you have a shotgun or handgun, even an old Civil War rifle or just a bayonet, bring it to the show from Aug. 30 through Sept. 3 at the Holiday Inn, 7550 E. State St., Rockford. You can have real experts evaluate and even find a collector to purchase your items. Bring in any and all types of military items such as hats, uniforms, belt buckles, cannon balls, etc. Collectors are in search of these items, and all guns and military items are in high demand.
Recent finds include a Confederate uniform for $3,500, Confederate flag that hung from a general’s tent for $2,000, Confederate money hidden in the walls of a residence that was uncovered during a remodel, and even a German SS Belt Buckle Gun used by a high-ranking officer during WW II that was purchased for $6,000! A local gentleman even brought in four shotguns and walked out with more than $16,000!
This is the first time in history collectors have hosted a show for any specific category.
