  1. Good point! That is most likely what it is. At least it made it to the epaulet!
  2. I was watching a video on the California Air National Guard and came across this Col. You would think that after at least a few decades of service, he wouldn't make this mistake!
  3. Yes it is--I'm very lucky to be the new caretaker of it! Steve is definitely one of the greats and although he never served, I'm sure that he must of boosted quite a bit of military moral back then!
  4. Here's an interesting one: Steve Martin's DBDU from Desert Shield (he wore it a numerous USO shows and accumulated a bunch of insignia as gifts from the troops).
  5. I completely agree with what's been said. I also see no problem with adding pieces to groups, placing representative ribbons on named uniforms, etc. for display, but the hobby is hurt when these additions are not acknowledged and the purpose goes from enhancing the display to intentionally misleading a buyer.
  6. Just heard back from the seller last night with "Thanks for the info," but the listing has not changed. My guess would be that this probably means the seller intentionally added the wings to the group to enhance the value.
  7. I did, but no response as of yet. Hopefully he'll update the listing at some point.
  8. For the sake of authenticity, I figured I would call attention to this ebay listing from fortress_7 of a ribbon bar from Vice Admiral Frederick Bardshar. https://www.ebay.com/itm/VICE-ADMIRAL-FREDERIC-A-BARDSHAR-NAVY-ACE-8-VICTORIES-RIBBON-BAR-PILOT-WING/274300683387?hash=item3fdd98447b:g:6a4AAOSwb5leZbzQ I sold the ribbon bar on this forum a couple years ago and it is 100% authentic, but this current listing (a bit overpriced as well) has a wing included that was never part of the group. It could be Bardshar's but as there is no additional evidence proving that, I would be very he
  9. Thanks for bringing this back up. Everyone at this museum is incredibly kind and generous, especially the two Johns (one of whom I would assume you spoke to)!
  10. Thank you very much! The smoking jacket is without a doubt one of my favorite pieces to display and does a great job of conveying the character of its former owner. The jacket belonged to Col. Bernie Fisher who was the first living recipient of the Air Force Medal of Honor (his flight jacket, mini-medals, etc. are also on this thread). It has an ocelot print and is what he wore to nearly every Medal of Honor reunion and event. Anyone that attended these events while Col. Fisher was still with us can probably attest to the fact that you could spot him very easily in a crowd. Col. Fisher has an
  11. Thanks Elliot, very much appreciated!
  12. Sorry for the delay! I'm out of town and don't have a good photo of the side, but here is a more focused photo. It did indeed belong to a Chief--Chief Torpedoman's Mate Harry Morris. Chief Torpedoeman's Mate Harry S. Morris enlisted at Newport, Rhode Island on 3 April 1903 as an Apprentice 3rd Class. After 11 months of Newport, he boarded the Revolutionary war frigate Alliance for his training cruise. This same sailing ship was the one used by Benjamin Franklin when he made one of his visits to France in Colonial days. From the Alliance, Morris went to the West Indies on the USS Topeka. I
  13. Here's one of the photos of Stan in this uniform:
  14. Sure! The jumper is stamped inside by Musial and can be seen in many of his "wartime" photos. The neckerchief was added by me for display.
  15. Thank you all for the kind words! Yep, that's a Zack Bogosian jersey and Steve Bedrosian's Phillies jersey. Being part Armenian, I also try and pick up historic Armenian American artifacts from time to time. Steve Bedrosian's son, Cam is a pitcher for the Angels and his jersey is there as well. Talk about a specific area of collecting!
