  1. Nice piece! I don't know much about it, but it is really nice!
  2. Thank You! You learn something every day in this hobby! I love it. Thanks!
  3. And last but certainly not least, my button!
  4. Moderators, if this is this isn't in the right place. If so, please move it. Thanks a million! With that, I have a question: I just got this Korea War uniform and noticed that one of the buttons is not right (Bottom button in the photo). It looks like the original button fell off at some point. I can find the same (or close enough) button for sale on eBay. I don't think that it will have the right patina to it, though. I'm fine paying for the button, but I don't want to put it on and then have it not match. I think it would look okay if I shined up the buttons already on the jacket. Is this not good to do, though? I don't want to take away from the value of the jacket. Also, this is my first marine uniform. I'm not sure if these or a dime a dozen or really rare. With that said, if someone has a button like this, shoot me a PM. I'd always prefer the original! Thanks!
  5. They just did a piece on these grenades on antiques roadshow. You should check it out. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/roadshow/video/201306F03.html
  6. Really Cool! I've never seen anything like that before!
  7. I have a small book that I picked up. It belonged to Bruce Luther (or Luther Bruce, depending on where you look) of the 136th New York Infantry Regiment. On the inside cover, there is Luther B. 136 NY CO.B. The book is titled The Course Of Time: A Poem, written by Robert Pollok. The dimensions are about 3.5 inches x 5 inches x .5 inches tall. Damages: The binding looks to have tape over it. The cover is scratched and the edges are worn. The book is in good condition for its age. Here is his information from the NYS website: LUTHER, BRUCE.—Age, 25 years. Enrolled, August 23, 1862, at North Dansville, to serve three years; mustered in as sergeant, Co. B , September 25,1862; promoted first sergeant, April 5, 1863; mustered in as first lieutenant, Co. C, April 16, 1864; mustered out with company, June 13, 1865, near Washington, D. C . ; also borne as Luther Bruce. Commissioned first lieutenant, April 7, 1S64, with rank from December 16, 1863, vice Charles Tresser killed in action. What do you Think? Any and all comments appreciated!
