We have added a number of new items to our website and have many more on the way.  We have purchased a few collections this last week that we have not had the chance to put online yet, but we will!

On a sad note, many of you may have heard of the stolen WWII dog tags from the US National Archives.  We have received an email from the National Archives asking us to keep an eye out for some of their items that have yet to be recovered.  None of us want to be on the wrong side of buying collectibles that are stolen.

If you have not heard about this theft, please read a copy of their email below:

Historian and collector Antonin DeHays was recently sentenced to 364 days in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release for the theft of U.S. service members' dog tags and other records from the public research room at the National Archives at College Park, Maryland.  Specifically, DeHays stole at least 291 U.S. service members' dog tags and at least 134 other records from the National Archives at College Park.  Some of these dog tags bore evidence of damage, such as dents and charring due to fire sustained during crashes of Allied aircraft that were shot down or crash-landed within German-controlled areas of Europe during World War II.
The National Archives has recovered many, but not all, of the stolen items.  Items still missing are identified on our Lost and Stolen Documents website: https://www.archives.gov/research/recover/wwii-id-tags
If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of any of these items, please contact the Archival Recovery Program at MissingDocuments@nara.gov or 301-837-3153.

Also, many of you have probably had your email in-boxes flooded with Privacy Policy updates from many websites you subscribe to.  We want to let everyone know that we do not share our email lists with anyone outside our company for any reason.  You have each trusted us with your contact information and we take that trust seriously.  Also, if at any time, or for any reason, you no longer wish to receive our emails, feel free to send us an email or use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of each mass email we send.  You can always sign up again later!

Don't forget! We offer Gift Certificates year round.  If you are looking for a gift for that hard to shop for collector, a Gift Certificate might be the best way to go.
