  1. Thanks jasonc. I thought the first one was an M1937 enlisted cap badge, but wasn't 100%. The second one is the real head scratcher.
  2. EGA #2. Again, no marks. Measures 1 3/8 inches from the tip of the anchor to the top. No evidence of a screw ever being present. It looks like it may have had a pinback (or one was supposed to be there) based on the silver color marks on the anchor. No sure though. Thanks!
  3. I'm not an EGA collector, and I've been going through all the references here and am still a little lost. I got these two EGAs in a bunch of misc emblems and am trying to figure out what exactly I have. Any help would be great! The first one has no marking. I measures 1 5/8 inches from the tip of the anchor to the top. I look like there was a screw at one time but it's no longer there.
  4. I got these two patches with a group of Gulf War era patches, medals, etc. Hopefully it's ok to post them here for ID if anyone knows. Not sure if they are Kuwaiti / Saudi, from the Gulf War or OIF? If they are bringbacks or theater made. Some sort of coalition or just junk. I also have a small pin that is the same as the orange "Kuwait" pin with blue triangle. They are both velcro backed as well. Thanks for any help.
  5. 2nd one is a post-WWII (maybe Occupation made) plastic (lucite?). Pretty cool.
  6. Picked up a couple of new custom ribbon bars. First is a nice WWII/Korea Army sewn rack.
  7. In 1947 the regulations were amended as follows: Chapter 8, MCM, article 43, change No. 11: 1. Effective 10 December 1945, and retroactive to current service-record books as of that date, the following regulations will govern the awarding of Good Conduct Medals and Bars. 2. Eligibility - Enlisted personnel, regular or reserve, who have completed 3 years of continuous active service and who meet the following conditions, are eligible for the award of Good Conduct Medals and Bars: Prior to that it was 4 years. So if he enlisted post 1941, most likely he had 16 years in, so the bar would
  8. Silver Star Medal w/ bronze star Bronze Star Medal w/ bronze star and Valor device Purple Heart with 4 bronze stars Naval/Marine Corps Commendation w/ Valor device Combat Action Ribbon (looks like there were 2 bronze stars) Army/Air Force Presidential Unit Citation Navy Presidential Unit Citation with 2 bronze stars Army Valorous Unit Award Navy/Marine Corps Unit Commendation with bronze star Navy/Marine Corps Meritorious Unit Commendation with 2 bronze stars Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal (not sure how many stars) Fleet Marine Force Reserve Medal National Defense Service
  9. No, none of them are WWII era. #1 Weapons Technician - rate used from 1987-1994 - probably the early end of that since it has the pre-1984 crow #2 Master At Arms - rate first used 1974 - so late 70s/early 80s #3 Operations Specialist - rate first used 1982 - so again probably late 70s/early 80s #4 Engineman - rate first used 1948 - based on the material again probably late 70s As far as value maybe $3-5 each.
  10. Here's a couple links to some nice pictures of a variety of Parachute Rigger rates: http://379814273472299153.weebly.com/usn-1942-1947-aviation-rating-badges.html http://379814273472299153.weebly.com/usn-1948-2000-aviation-rating-badges--bullion-rating-badges.html
  11. They might belong to Col Clifton Lisle (Robert Clifton Patton Lisle) from PA. He was born 27 Nov 1891 in PA, and died Aug 1966 in Chester Springs, PA. I confirmed he was awarded Knight grade of the Order of Dannebrog. Lisle, Clifton (R.) 1946, (Silver Star x2—USA WW I), Col. US Army, Military Governor Austria, Germany 1945-46), (1892, 1966†), Chester Springs, PA He was a 1st Lt in WWI. His Silver Star citation is below: Silver Star Citation Awarded for actions during the World War I By direction of the President, under the provisions of the act of Congress approved July 9,
  12. I've looked in all the references I could find and still come up blank with this one...SMS? The style makes me think military school, but I'm not sure. Measures about 2.5 inches long by 1.5 wide. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
