Here's an example of some (partial) success at reuniting a broken group. The group to Civil War Col. A. G. Tassin was broken up in a Stack's sale in 2005 where I bought the French Legion of Honor. A few years later I was able to acquire the Loyal Legion badge as well. Just recently the GAR medal in the center showed up on eBay. (Someone lost a bit of money on that medal. It sold in Stacks for $550 but I got it on eBay for only $258. Go figure...)

 

Unfortunately there's also a beautiful Army of the Cumberland badge to Tassin that's still MIA. It sold for $3200 in 2005 so even if it eventually surfaces I probably wont go after it. In the mean time I'm happy with what I have. It is possible to reunite groups with a bit of patience and luck.

Looking for the Defense Logisitic Agency Medal and WW2 Army Good Conduct engraved to "Jerome J. Londinsky". Of course, I'm looking for his two Bronze Star Medals as well, but neither are named. Thanks!
