I know that many members who were unable to attend the SOS 2017, are anxious to see photos of the show. I have taken them and will post as usual. I toured the show row by row and took pictures of most of the hauben offered, especially the "rare" ones. However, the SOS for the Haube Head's (Joe Robinson's name for us) who attend, is a bit of a "grind" due to an 8am to 4:00 pm show (3 days) then, the social meetings which occur after. This involves food, plus alcohol consumption but by the end of the evening, more alcohol has been consumed than food. So...., my apologies but you will have to wait a bit, until I get back and escape this SOS situation which involved a pickelhauben search by day and "party" by night!! I would like to say, that the partying that went on, was strictly led by J.Le Brasseur and Col. J. Robinson and as usual, I was led astray by these forum members. I am completely innocent! :D ! More to come my friends.

I had a great S O S show .
A cople of 14 " X 20 " display mounts of straps for my cllection
mainly enlisted Dragoons , which I just started to collect .
A Generals strap for Garde Grenadier Regt. 3
A pair of Majors straps for I R 9
A rare officers strap for Saxon Machine Gun Abtg 8
I bought 2 nice Prussian enlisted helmets
hard to find hemets these days that are 100 % correct
and not been "played around with ".
Picked up my Pioneer Batl. 10 Reserve officers helmet
that Brian restored for me.
Super job that he did , I might add.
Jim T. who has done several books and has done a study
on what % of troops wore a certain type of Regt. helmet
in the I G Armee told me that only 1/10th of 1 % wore
the P B 10 helmet .
The Crown Jewel of my purchases at the show was
an Officers Friedensrock tunic for the KAGGR# 1
I hope to post photos later under latest find.

I hope others will do the same .
I know that James LaB picked up some nice helmets

It was good seeing everyone in Louisville. I'm sorry to you guys who I didn't say goodbye to this year, but hey, it never really is goodbye as much as "see you next year!"

Hello,
Thanks for posting the photos. Who is the dealer/exhibitor Mark aka "Maple Creek" and how might I contact him regarding some of the helmets pictured and whether they are still available for purchase?
Thanks

Mike

Tony I do not know, seeing David Mosher's blue vest on the chair in the same spot it has been for over 10 years bring me tears....

However, My son did have a blast playing with Molly, he was covered in hair by end of show.

First let me acknowledge how much we missed Gus and Maggie. I know this microphone types what it wants to. And thank you Tony for the picture of Molly Who spend most of the show under the table.

There is nothing better for a collector Than to go to SOS. People put faces with names and deals abound. Some members actually get free stuff . Seriously knowledgeable people are around to answer questions. I saw Bryan giving a bad news answer to a newcomer about helmet repair. He got it from the horses mouth. I saw a Randy give a lecture on the upcoming helmet sales . Full of insights and back room stories. You cannot pay for this kind of education. You can get it nowhere else. I know many of you have excuses about why you cannot attend but it is a mistake. People come from Europe and all over the US. Next year I will only so a few books but I am going anyway. It is true that there are one or two people who are persona non grata. They know who they are and what they did. While other people get family Prices I have actually seen prices rise as they approach. This is a social event. Everyone knows everyone. As Randy said we have a niche market and we know all of the nichers. Reassess if you do not attend. It is well worth your while.

Well said Joe! I for one plan to attend again next year and bring the next generation of collectors with me to terrorize the place. :bravo:

Joe, you have me looking forward to it already.

I can't agree more that shows like this are so important for old and young collectors alike. I know this year I was pleased to see many familiar faces as well as many young collectors. I'll be going to SOS as long as I am breathing!

I have not been to a militaria show in a long long time .

Just looking at the pictures tells what I have been missing maybe hopefully I can go next year .

But the money spent going and staying at a show like this could go towards another piece in the collection.

Oh.... to have deep pockets.

Yes Molly was a big hit at the show and I too was covered in her hair but but it was worth it... a beautiful well trained dog. Truly, a great time was had by all and I love watching while James spends all his money! For me, the show is the biggest treasure hunt of the year, a time when I get to scour through hundreds of dealer tables, looking for parts, bargains and rare pieces. I was also gifted a copy of Mike Kelso's new shoulder board reference book by my good friend T Schnurr, a complete surprise, totally unexpected. Then to top it all off, I am handed a gift box of 100's of officer chin scales and pieces by Randy Trawnik from Age of Kings. Perhaps, I am not quite the selfish bastard that my 2 ex wives claim me to be :lol:. Anyway, the SOS and meeting up with my haube collector friends once a year has become a part of my life. I will always be there for the show as long as I am able. :thumb up:
