  1. Hello, my name is Terry Miller, and I have an interesting find. I bought a Revere 8mm camera from eBay. In the view eye piece, I found a rolled up note.  The paper is a strip torn from note book paper. The note says “809 troops of not are coming in”.  Don’t know if the message was to warn or to encourage the person or persons intended like maybe a hide out or a camp.  One thing for sure, it didn’t get delivered. The camera is American made, manufactured in the ’30s.  It was sold at an estate sale in East Springfield, Ohio. Could ‘not’ have been a code name?  I think it’s nice piece of war mystery history. Please let me know what you can find out about this find.
    Sincerely, Terry
