I am looking for other collectors of historical code books that would like to trade their duplicates for my duplicates and help each other fill in holes in our collections. This is a barter/tase request, not an offer for sale.

Looks like my bait got a bite. That was my first goal...to connect with other collectors, and know I’m not the only nerd out there. There are so many codes and I have so many already. I figured it would be best for collectors to list their duplicates rather than their holes. My collection goes back to an original 1937 UBC. I have a lot of duplicate uniform codes back to 1964 plumbing and 1970 building. I don’t have many BOCA or SSBCI. I will make a list of my duplicates and post it, but I will say I have about 50+ duplicates available for trade.

Let me clarify, these 50 duplicates are pre I-code. Legacy codes.

Yep
Not a collector, just an accumulator


I think I may only go back to the 60’s or 70’s

Anyway


List away

Unfortunately, You are in a different land from SBCCI -- If you have those, I would definitely talk
I only have one SBCCI that I bought on ebay. Those are the codes I am missing from my collection, so if you have duplicates, then you are the guy I am looking for. Are you not interested in the history of the legacy organizations prior to their coming together? Why not expand your reference library with some of the western influence? poke-poke...

I feel so alone... No one else collects old code books? I thought for sure I'd find them in this forum...

I had a few 80's uniform code books but when we moved I made the mistake of asking the other party should we take them to the new house? And that party said, "NO!" So they went in the recycling bin at the street curb.

Can I keep...NO!:mad:

What about this one... You'll never use them again..

Then I asked about this white dress I found with a bunch of lace on it in this plastic bag and she said, and I quote "Are you a complete idiot?"

Some stuff is just worth more to others I guess?

Sorry Glenn, didn't know anyone cared about old code books. But wedding dresses, now that's a different story.

Well, Pcinspector1, maybe you're right. Maybe no one cares about old code books... But how can that be? Seriously...I thought you guys were die-hard code junkies. I thought I was in good company... So sad... There is so much fun history in the books and so much important history that should not be forgotten as we charge forth every three years to re-write the damn thing. I still have all my available extras and will always be holding on to them for a future trade.
