Neat item. Looks like a plate a museum had made to help with a display of his items.
DITO Good question, I wonder if it came from the Cantigny Museum outside of Chicago. I hope the grouping is still on display and not been deacquisition or deaccession and now is in a private collection.
I am not saying this happened, just some thought from the cheap seats.

What did the museum have on display?
That would be the Cantigny 1st division museum in Wheaton Illinois.
On the grounds of the former home of Colonel Robert McCormack... the owner of the Chicago Tribune.
The Colonel was with the division in WW1.
His mansion is on the grounds and he and his wife are buried there.
They rebuilt the museum, expanded it...... im going to guess over 20 years ago now.
Im guessing maybe it was removed from there at that time?
