I've been paying my dues alot lately. Hitting antique stores, flea markets etc etc and I've been doing ok. Nothing crazy rare, but certainly my fair share of great fatboys, slims, olds, news and techs.
I've mostly been dreaming of finding a minty WWI military issue khaki set or a double ring - don't we all have our dream finds?
Anyways, prowling through an online classifieds site I found a mom and pop antique shop advertising straights. On a whim I emailed asking if they had any DE's as well. They responded that they did have quite a bunch, and sent me the following two pictures - I then highlighted the few (the white circles) that I was interested in, not knowing for sure what a couple were, but they looked good so I picked them.
Do you guys see it yet? I did not, until they picked out my selection and sent me the following picture to confirm my selection, and give me a price of around $100 for all 6 (I dropped the SE GEM - thought it was something else)
Still don't see it? How about now :)
All 6 are now on their way to me.... I'm feeling very very good about this score!
