Dave, you are correct. Dave, Yes they are from Leu's.

These are an accumilation of the general's medals and orders. I'll post a pic of where most of them came from which was his uniform he wore at Omaha Beach and his collection in PA.

Sbas,

I do not have this collection any longer. This was my collection that went to Wyoming. They are selling off things they dont want or need I guess.

This is the Philippines Legion of Honor, Chief Commander that I have acquired and added to my general officer collection. Only two general officers received this award. General Maxwell Taylor and GOA Douglas MacArthur. This is only the third one I have ever seen and now its in my collection.

Let me know what you think.
