John,

Your web site is excellent! Would you post the link to it on this web site for all to visit?

Regards,

Mel

P.S. You may also wish to ask one of the administrators of this site to update your web link in the dealers directory above.

Ok Mel,

The site that currently has the 34 categories of collectibles and most examples in color of each is at:

http://jbcarey.net/

I am adding more information as fast as I can.  There are master lists of maps and magazines to aid in knowing what to collect in those categories.

I'm taking requests for any "want lists" as I have many collectibles for sale in each category.

Thnx for asking
