Here is another riker with assorted different items. The marine wings are WW2 pin back amico marked. These are easy to use for displays just lay them on the table.

Bought this uniform from an old dealer friend of mine. He enlisted in the USMC just before the wars end. He brought back a bunch of stuff, he sold me his uniform and some other small stuff. Great guy who is still alive today.

Thanks for all the kind statements. I have a little time tonight so here is a picture of a display case I have. Contains mostly medals but there are some groupings, edged weapons, and captured flags.

Close up of edged weapons. I don't actively collect them but you always seem to run into them.

I also like unit histories. I own around 50 of them. They come in handy for research and also make good display items.

This is a grouping from a gunner on B-24's. Lower left is his graduation cert from gunners school. Some pieces of V mail. And you really can't see it but there is a drawing of a B-24 with an idea for nose art on it.

I am going to start a uniform thread. I see that I received a request for some armored uniforms so I dug out some TD uniforms. It will contain uniforms from all branches and eras. Thanks.

The three units shown are from left to right, Company K, 4th Nebraska Infantry, then Company M 330th Infantry Regiment, and lastly K Troop of the 25th US Cavalry. I have around 20 of these yard long pictures in various places in my basement.

I updated some of the frames I use to display in my basement. The ranger tabs I am not sure about. They are not WW2. There is a month nip on some of them so they are wool, with the cheesecloth backing. The poster is original but has been lamanated. I need to get a WW2 2nd armored division. The majority are green back.

Sorry for the flashes. This is my grandfather's USN bootcamp graduation photo. It is a copy of the restored piece. I just added the petty officer rates to the bottom. Dressed it up a little.
