  1. The Eagle and "U.S.A" have a very late 19th/ early 20th century look to them, so probably a reunion/ GAR event item from that time period. Scott
  2. Nice patent model and image. Any production on the saddle? what was the new/ innovative feature of the saddle? Scott
  3. Really amazing grouping-- used to see these type of groupings, but it seems most have been split out over the years. Did you get this from the family? Thanks for sharing. Scott
  4. Great grouping and a tragic story. The "charcoal" is photographic. The enlargement of photographs was a huge source of revenue for photographers in the late 19th century and was heavily advertised. Both "charcoal" and "pastels" (retouched with colors) are a photographic process and not hand drawings. As the photographs were enlarged details were lost and studios employed artists to add the details back in to the photograph. Scott
  5. Thanks Allan. I appreciate the information. Scott
  6. Thanks-- see it now. I wasn't familiar with them and didn't see a Rakkasan crest. Appreciate the education. Scott
  7. If you still have-- can you add photos of the unit crests? Not sure what unit they are for. Thanks. Scott
  8. So did local sew shops. You were double charged to get the 101st patch sewn on-- one charge for the Eagle and a second charge for the "Airborne" tab! It always annoyed me. Scott
  9. Just got this one in. It is an 8 X 10 inch tinted photograph. I am a big fan of these hand tinted images of the era. Scott
  10. Not a soldier or a uniform. This is just a Civil war era child. Revenue tax stamp puts this from 1 AUG 1864- 31 JUL 1866. Scott
  11. You can bracket date Real Photo PostCards (RPPC) by specifics of the stamp box: https://www.playle.com/realphoto/ I have found the information on the site to be very reliable. Scott
  12. A great badge! Thanks for sharing. Agree that the hds isn't the "end all" on documentation-- it is a great start point for research, but I have found many guys with significant history not documented. Good luck with further research. Scott
