Shipping is OPTIONAL. You may pick this item up in Keene, New Hampshire where you will pay NO Shipping, \"Handling\", or Sales Tax.
Please carefully read my description and check out the photos BEFORE asking questions, making offers or purchasing item.

This is lot of items documenting the military service of Lt. Commander Harlan J. Coit who served in the Pacific theater as a Naval aviator during World War II. The lot includes photos, documents, flight logs, period aviator glasses in original cases, Presidential citations including award of an Air Medal for meritorious service in the Solomon Islands campaign, as well as various items related to his reserve duty after the war. It would be difficult for me to adequately describe all the items in this extraordinary record of one airman\'s service so I\'ve shot 45 quality photos which appear below this text. ( has a 12 photo limit for the photos hosted by them at the top of any listing. Those and all the others I\'ve shot of this lot appear below. Though many photos from his time of service are included below, there are many more that are included in the lot but NOT shown below. I decided that 45 images were enough to give a reasonable representation of the complete collection. Because this collection is complex and photos can\'t adequately depict it in its entirety, I encourage serious collectors to visit and examine everything in person before purchase. Though I served in the U.S. Navy, it was in peacetime, so I can only guess at a fair price for this one of a kind collection. If I\'ve undervalued it, so much the better for you! (The \"handling cost\" is for insurance.)
Please see the high quality large photos below.
If broken image blocks show instead of photos below, please refresh the page.

Shipping is Optional. If you wish to pick up the item or have another pick it up for you, you may do so and avoid the cost of shipping. Item is located in Keene, NH which about 90 minutes west of Boston, north of Hartford and east of Albany.

Please ignore any \"broken image\" symbols as they are just place holders and do NOT represent images missing from this listing. read a sampling of my extraordinary response and then buy with confidence.
I make every effort to treat others as I wish to be treated. Here are my rules and terms:
I Guarantee items to match the description. Items that differ substantially from the description may be returned at buyer\'s expense for refund of purchase price ONLY.
Items that substantially match the description but NOT the buyer\'s expectations MAY NOT be returned.
I make every effort to describe items accurately and completely and to be conservative in my claims. Some items, like auto stereo components may NOT be returned once the package has been opened and items described as NEW and that qualify for manufacturer\'s warranty may NOT be returned but should be delivered to manufacturer or manufacturer\'s authorized warranty service facility for repair in the event of failure during the warranty period. If you request it, I will furnish a retail bill of sale to support your warranty claim.
I NEVER charge \"handling charges\" or any other bogus added fees or Sales Tax. My \"shipping\" charges DO include cost of packing material and are averaged so a few buyers pay less than my actual cost, and a few somewhat more. Shipping
Charges for lower 48 by my choice of delivery method are quoted at the Bottom of the page. I assume buyer will be on the opposite coast when I estimate shipping and reserve the right to charge less if buyer is much closer. Shipping to Alaska and Hawaii are usually higher so please ask for quotation before offerding.
Pickup:Item may be picked up at Interface, 660 Main Street, Keene, NH 03431 except in sales of items so large or heavy that they are retained by the owner. In those cases, payment is made to me but pickup is from location of item. Location and instructions for getting there will be furnished to winner. If you Pick the item up NO shipping charges or sales tax will be due.
Options: I prefer to ship lightweight items by mail and heavier items by UPS ground for lowest cost but will entertain requests to ship by other methods if buyer is willing to pay the additional cost. UPS requires a street address and will NOT deliver to a PO box so buyers lacking a street address may have to pay additional cost for delivery by mail. (and insurance, if desired)
International shipments are handled through Global Shipping program. I ship the item to in Kentucky and they handle the actual export shipping of the item.

I pack professionally using sturdy cartons, padded envelopes, and ample quantities of foam peanuts and/or bubble wrap to insure that items I ship arrive undamaged and so have VERY few items damaged in shipping. I double box high value items to conceal the contents from prying eyes. When practical, I re-use packing materials in an effort to minimize environmental impact and keep material cost down.
Postal insurance is expensive so I don\'t insure low value items (under $60) shipped by USPS but UPS provides free insurance for the first hundred dollars value so all items handled by UPS are insured.

Payment Options

Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover charge cards and PAYPAL (Both bank and card funded), EFT. EFT payment must be received at least 3 days prior to picking up item. If you have any questions about these terms, please call or email me.
