"If you were as good a Major as you are a sales man, I pity your enemy !" A recent satisfied customer comment...
Major Charles E. Snyder, Jr.,USAF (Retired), is an internationally recognized dealer in quality militaria - of all armies and all wars - from antiquity to the present. He has over 40 years of collecting experience as a buyer, seller, and trader and more than 30 years as a renowned dealer and promoter of collectible arms and militaria shows - from California to New England, from Houston, TX to Allentown, PA.
He currently hosts one show a year in the Baltimore, Maryland area - the Annual Collectible Arms and Militaria Show and Sale, held once a year on the third weekend of March at the Pikesville (Maryland) National Guard Armory. Details are on the SHOWS and EVENTS page. He also attends more than several shows a year as a dealer and exhibitor. eBay has been so successful, it is difficult to break away, except for the very BEST shows. His award-winning displays at many of the major shows have ranged from Allied Fighting Knives of World War II to one of the largest displays of original Adolf Hitler Vienna-period watercolors ever open to the public.
His military service career in the United States Air Force spanned more than 20 years, with combat tours in both Korea and Vietnam. His last posting was at the prestigious National War College in Fort McNair, Washington, DC, as Operations Officer.
He was a writer and columnist for The Military Trader magazine and has had regular features and articles appearing in The Big Show Journal and Arms and Armour Magazine.
He caused the writing of Treasure Trove: The Looting of the Third Reich. This is the ground-breaking book on personality items of many of the most notorious figures of World War Two. Many of the items were found at the Obersalzberg area by a 506th PIR 101st Airborne Infantry Division officer named 1 Lt D C Watts. His story is told in a new book I caused to have written. The title is "Treasure Trove the Looting of the Third Reich" available from me on my site http://www.snyderstreasures. com/pages/trove.htm .
