Hello! As with all things we are fans of, some of us tend to collect items related to such interest. Since we're all interested in ships here - whether for the hardcore historian or the Kancolle admiral, do you guys collect naval or ship memorabilia? If so, what do you collect?
For me, I actually am trying to collect Lion Club ship pins. If you guys don't know, the group Lion Club International created a set of pins relating to different ships from around the world (ex: http://thumbs2.piccl...UE-FLAG-PIN.jpg ). They're quite varied in design and aren't restricted to WW2, using designs from the Civil War and other eras. I started with a USS Honolulu pin and now have a few more pins in my collection.
I also have a giant plushie turret from Kancolle that I won from Anime Expo in Los Angeles last year - https://images-na.ss...411KtXHYK8L.jpg
To those who are familiar with the Lion Club ship pins, do you know if there are any good sellers of such pins? I only know one at the moment...and I regularly purchase from him (http://www.ebay.com/...w=ship&_sacat=0 ). I'm mostly looking for Littorio-class battleship pins (though any Regia Marina ship pin would be nice) at the moment since I'm on an Italian high. I don't have a super high budget for the pins, but I'm willing to fork a little bit if the quality is nice. To those who can help, I definitely appreciate it.
