Anyone on the board specialize in the Pre-War pins?

Anyone here have any of the Pre-War pins? i have been looking around but haven't seen any for sale in WI. we fell in love with them playing them at FreePlay Florida over the last few years. Just curious if there were any local guru that might know where to look.

I listen to a few other pinball podcasts. I do 2 shows per week for a station out of St. Pete and also have a long running B-Movi...
