Re: Question re: 1943/1944 Aircrew Lunch and other confectionery

Re: 1951 Ration, Indv., Trail, Frigid

If you happen to want to sell one or more of those bad boys plus the box, check your PM for my starting offer. We gotta get at least one of those things documented, that is an amazing find.

Re: Feedback - Buy/Sell/Trade

Damir & Crombat rations more than made up and came through on a deal. So i sent Damir a little extra money for covering what he spent on expedited shipping. He was fair, kind, and above all, honest.
