My most expensive photo. It was $98, I missed another WW1 ration photo, that went to like $300 of a soldier and his rations under a lean-to.. it was a spectacular post card.

And one of my favorite mugs.

Heres some of my favorite items IMO that I own, hope you guys enjoy seeing these items! My favorite might actually be the fully perfect condition Hershey tropical bar from I believe the early-mid 50's?

Hey that emergency flying ration is pretty cool! Did you open it yourself or buy it like that?

Cortex your ration collection is maybe a bit small, but your collection of videos in what you've had firsthand experience on is already grown into a nice variety, and with some impressive acquisitions in that variety. I'm building a certain kit for you but some parts are just kinda not happening it seems.

Still gotta catch up on PMs. Just finally getting to some more items. Need to get into this one large tub soon for my 1945 crat case. I got the Reserve Ration of ww1, most versions of c rat WW2, post ww2, RIC, RCI, MCI most years, MRE 1980- most years etc, and the prototypes. Really wanting to display it together for a video. It's just kinda slow... wearing too many hats right now inside & outside of work. Hope you all are doing well.

My coolest ration is a 2015 Spanish Survival Ration. Never opened it before, since they are quite hard to get hold of in my experience.
In case you don't know, this ration is handed to Spanish Soldiers in case of supply cut off or emergency. It has 24 hours worth of food inside, mostly consisting of energy bars.
New to collecting, so I don't have as exciting rations as everyone else here, but I am slowly working to get my collection up.
