Harold, I am getting thru our boxes a little at a time and trying to throw away quite a bit and donate some also. I have a storage shed and a small shed in the backyard full of stuff as well. I may try and have a garage sale when the weather warms up. I plan on bringing a lot to the new house as well,  in the town of Crump about twenty miles away they have a flea market every weekend that makes up most of main street I am planning on getting a table and selling my goods whenever I can. I met a retired CSM there last weekend that was selling his goods, he was a Tanker and Scout he said he was on the Border at Fulda Gap in the mid 80's We are moving from 900 sq. ft. into 1900 sq. ft. so I am probably going to more furniture. Thanks for the words of encouragement. Stay well.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
