PVON, those are great American Legion items.  Do you have a complete collection of reunion badges?  Were the school awards engraved to their recipients?  Are there different variations of school awards over the years?  Different makers?

 

I am sure there is lots to learn for those who haven't studied the American Legion in depth.

 

Thanks for sharing!  I look forward to seeing more.

 

Kevin

My friend is really into it and is teaching and selling me some things I

like!

 

The large ones shown are school given and the lady standing one is girls school

one!

 

He says only10%are named on edge!

 

Kids were given small pins or ribbon type medal!

 

 

When I get time I will take more pics of ribbons!

 

 

I hear a guy on ebay is selling american legion book showing ribbonsand info!

 

I think my friend says he has 10 at around 15.00  I have to buy another myself!

 

 

The war yrs of ww2 are harder to find! 42,43,44,45 in Legion ribbons!

I put together an online guide. I am finishing up a book version this year for the 1st hundred years. We have specialized in acquiring Distinguished Guest variations for each year. There are normal delegates and guests for each year too.

So I have a pretty large pile of American Legion uniforms from Michigan. All are blue, some are jackets, some have shirts and trousers. Anyone interested can contact me and for a donation to my museum plus postage, can have them. One or all. I think there may be 5 or 6 and I believe they are from the 40s and 50s but not really sure. All have patches and collar devices etc...  Scott

A stunning pair of WWI American Legion Machine Gunner Bronze Bookends.  A great set for the military collector to use in their library or display room.  Show in relief a US Machine Gunner on a Browning MG with Uniform and Helmet.  Are quite heavy and measure 6 3/4” high by 4 1/2" x 2 7/8”.  Have green felt bottom and are in incredible condition.

 

 

Member sent me these pics lets see if I can post!

THANKS Paul, I really appreciate the scans upload ! Yup. I think I may have gotten lucky with these, as I was watching another pair on eBay for quite awhile. The guy selling them wanted $300, via the 'Buy it Now' feature, but I just couldn't see paying that price ! Well, I guess someone felt differently as one day I went to check & they had been sold ! Never thought I'd see another pair, until yesterday that is. Needless to say, I jumped all over them ! If anyone here happens to know anything about these absolutely beautiful bookends, please let me, & is know. THANKS
Best, dpast32

Here is a random photo of a proud American Legion member in his uniform and medals. Regretfully he is unnamed. Based on the bars on his Victory Medal, he must have been part of a lot of engagements.
