New Addition - Span-Am Uniform

Post by Peter_Suciu » Sun Nov 08, 2020 9:29 am

On Friday I attended only the second military collectibles show since SOS. This was the OVMS Show in Wilmington, Ohio. They do a good job with spreading out tables to encourage social distancing and required masks. Without those conditions I would not have attended.

I saw this near complete Span-Am War uniform. It has the pack and blanket (can't see it in the photo). The repro hat is a placeholder but does the trick for now. The rifle is a Springfield Trapdoor. It was something I didn't know I needed until I saw it but it will go well with my American uniform collection.

Great set, I have some SpamAm stuff as well. For a long time this was an over looked period.
