    THIS IS '' NUTS''

    I went to a rummage sale last weekend 45 minutes early - the place was packed - everyone had their 'piles' of good stuff . All I found was a Scrabble Game . I went to pay and she said they weren't ready to take money yet . So I went to 20 boxes of books . I was happy to find the Aircraft Recognition book dated 1962 - next to it was an old autograph book . They were finally letting people pay . My 3 items were $1.00 . They had a donation jar I gave another dollar . I didn't realize what I had til I got home .

    Very nice signature book! I see Eisenhower. We all know who he is.

    For those that don't recognize the others they are;

    R.C. Hildreth He was a colonel in the Signal Corps, I imagine Blanche was his wife. 599h - Seine Section, Vol XIX - History of Signal Section ? Page 22 - Fold3.com

    The last one is Gen. Anthony Clement "Nuts" McAuliffe
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_McAuliffe

    My question is what was George's last name?


    ps- sorry for a repeat reply on
    "Nuts", a little late I guess.

    Anybody have any guesses on value of the signature book? Do you think there is any benefit to having it authenticated? Just interested because I have never come across autographs before.

    Go to Las Vegas. Offer it for sale at the Pawn Shop, let them bring in the expert.

    Refuse any offer.

    Let us know when you will be on TV.

    Go take in a show and have a nice relaxing weekend.

    Great find!

    His offer won't even cover the show.

    Can't relax in that town. I stay away from it. My parents retired there, but they lived on the edge of town and never did more than a buffet dinner on the strip. The parents arn't around any more so I do not have to endure 115* and 100,000 people at the same time.

    I wouldn't want to guess the value of it. I'm sure it'd be quite high if the sigs. can be verified. If I owned it and was planning on selling it, I would want the most I could get out of it. Having that book authenticated would dramatically increase the value I believe. Especially since there are even more WW2 notables in it as already mentioned by mojjax. Having said that I would be lost trying to figure out who or where to send it for authentication. I think this piece should be sold in an internationally advertised militaria auction.

    I vote banner!

    Me, too!

    Couldn't someone search online to see who authenticates and even auctions this sort of unique stuff?
