Description:Just a super book! This book is about the hobby of collecting relics. It discusses this topic from different directions. The first direction is the collecting in the early years by soldiers and other people during and early after the war. Then there were people who eye-balled relics before detectors were available followed by a discussion of the advent of metal detectors and how they changed the hobby. There is also a discussion of the impact of the Centennial on the collecting hobby. Written in 1978 the only thing missing is the impact of eBay. It is filled with both pictures of relics and discussion to help you understand the origins of the hobby. You'll even see early images of many people you see today at the shows or people who are no longer with us. A very informative and interesting book with some incredible images.

The book is unsigned and in very good condition. It has the dust jacket and is in nearly new condition overall.
