    Thanks fellas, any more ideas ??
  3. Wow Lars, Dennis is right, the use of the bucket is great. I see you let your artistic inspirations take over and you've come up with a very nice scene. I smiled with delight when I saw it. The figures are all great. Semper Fi. Manny
  4. That 37mm squid looking round seems cool. The paper trying to teach people what they will be up against and protect themselves?
  5. The DIs he wearing are for the 22nd Coat Artillery Regement, Portsmouth New Hampshire Harbour Defense. It's rather complex lineage. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/22nd_Coast_Artillery_(United_States)
  6. So looks like the liner named vet was in the 81st Naval Construction Battalion, while the shell’s blue marking is for the 1st Engineer Special Brigade. Both units served in Utah. Just wanted to point this out. An interesting but possible combination? Ran
  7. Here's two shoulder Leather patches I did of the 8th AAF with "detailed" wings etc, these went to a woman who's Father was in the 303rd Bombardment Group and will be ordering the Squadron's patches soon, enjoy
  8. The late great Jamas Sawicki when he was a little Private in 1938, he was then an Artilleryman with the 6th Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Division, Fort Hoyle Maryland, he later switched to Infantry, and fought as a officer in Italy with the 168th Infantry, 34th Red Bull Infantry Division, and in the Korean War in the 9th Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division.
  9. I’ve sent quite a few and never had a problem.
  10. Thank you Mike and Bugme, you guys have provided me more information about these beauties. I was nervous it was something bad, anxiety i tell ya what, but you guys have given me such a lift. I am younger collecting so to see people with so many posts, tell me such great things, i love it. This hobby is great and i thank both you gentlemen.
  11. Allow me to share this from an old topic in te Unit Crests Forum. https://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/192478-100th-signal-company-di/
  12. Today
  13. As everyone notices now after the huge format change, Photobucketed Images are now visible again, don't know why LOL, but you can view them, And as you see when you click link, no DIs are with this Grouping.
  14. That is amazing history and deserves to be displayed in a museum in Texas. Too bad that can't happen anymore. It'll probably be safer in a private collection anyhow.
  15. Marty, Officer's Equipment Company did not make any of the insignia that they sold. Tesla, Yes, even though there are not any full-size aviator wings in the sample board at the top of this page, they did sell them. More about the salesman sample board: I've tried again to take close-up images of a few insignia seen in the sample board but none do any of them the justice they deserve. Yes, the sterling silver badges have tarnished over time, but the others still sparkle in the sun light.
  16. The net is the very hard to find commando/sniper net....man you got yourself two more gems there, really great high quality scores......mike
  17. I believe the barrell is 0riginal colt marked chrome lined. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Stay safe. regards, -Ed
  18. The a4 ...yellow group is a late war...late 44 harness...the a3 or an6513 would be good for earlier displays
  19. Hello, My WW2 Mae West has a CO2 cartridge. I need to ship it and Postal service says no. Anybody ship these with no problems? Thanks, Dave
  20. Here is an Officer's Equipment Company Glider pilot wing I have. I unfortunately don't have a scale to provide the weight of it, but it's not a flimsy strike and has some weight to it.
  21. Yesterday
  22. Hello all. Walked into a pawn shop at a highway rest stop last week. Picked this up for $100. I posted it on Facebook, now I’m getting people messaging me to buy it for $4K. I was told that it had a D-Day Utah Beach connection. Would love to hear what you think and learn as much as I can about this piece. Helmet named to a local MN vet. Richard T. Lueken. BTW, not for sale!! Regards, Ran
  23. It's not a Federal Plate. If an old strike, probably used by militia who didn't have their own design to wear (cheaper to go with this generic style rather than design and produce a custom plate) If a more recent strike, could have been used by a band. Whether or not it's a restrike doesn't have a significant effect on value. Little if any demand by collectors, so not much value.
