Sotheby's is offering James S. Copley Library original documents, with some absolutely amazing material like this:

"An official letter from 12 July 1776 from the Marine Committee of Congress to John Ashmead, Signed by Button Gwinnett, the most prized of all the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Not only an example of his hand, but as a Congressional Delegate from July 1776 (most examples in other collections are documents and scraps from earlier in his life). Also signed by Hancock, Morris, Lewis, Read and Middleton. Est. $500/700,000."

I collect military autographs but my items are all modern. I do not have any autographs that are real old. My collection dates from now to 1990. I still feel that I collect History though. Thanks,

Robert E. Sigler

My collection is modern depending on your definition. I started collecting in I think 1996 or so. However, my earliest autograph is from a WWII vet. When you say 1990 are these guys who made history after 1990 or did you just get the autograph after 1990? I would be interested to hear about who you have?

I collect Medal of Honor Recipients autographs and have about 40 or so. See my blog for posters I create and their stories.

I just posted the 4th in my Valor series of blogs, this one Col Mitchell Paige, MOH Recipient from WWII. Included are photos of some of what he sent back to me.

Does anyone collect autographs of anti-war figures?

Hi. I just joined the group and thought I'd introduce myself. My name's Rich and, among other things, I collect WW II (Doolittles Raiders, Tuskegee Airmen, Flying Tigers, MOH recipients and air aces), astronauts and X-15 pilots. My son is getting ready to join the Marines so I may start to focus on that branch of the military.

Next Medal of Honor Convention will be in Louisville, Kentucky, Sept. 28 thru Oct. 3. Mark your calendars. Will be planning to go to that one, only 5 hours from where I live.
