  1. I collect strictly QM items. How will you be selling these items? I will not ask for a private sale but I'm just wondering how to be prepared. Did this collection belong to David Olson by chance? Thanks.

     

    Yes this is the Olson collection, whats left of it.

  2. Some news.

     

    A chevron expert reported to me, re: post #2 ..."Of the eight 10-inch-wide 1872-pattern chevrons shown, one (Post QM Sgt.) appears to be authentic. The rest are strictly bogus. Fake blue fields with the QM quill and key have been attached to authentic bars (stripes) for various branches of the service. None of those ranks existed".....

     

    ​They are the chevrons marked "unofficial".

     

    Dave your expert is spot on, I will be taking those apart. There are a few other pieces that are not original.

  3. One of the most advanced collectors got this lot and I wanted it bad. I just didn't bid as high as him. These never come and then to have a name tag for each patch. The 5th sold for 1200.00 not long age and it was ID'd wrong. This was one of the BEST grouping I have seen in years. Might be the winner will be writing another book soon.
