  1. Thanks everyone for the great responses. I was very confused by this uniform as well. I didn't think of Iceland service or England. I was just researching the 63rd infantry division. Makes sense though, Thanks
  2. Hi everyone, I recently picked up this uniform from a local antique mall. I was wondering could I get peoples opinions on this. I am not sure if I agree on this uniform and the guy being overseas 3 years total. I have id this uniform to Harvey L Rates of Oshkosh Wi. I actually met this man and had the pleasure of talking with him about the war. I am not sure I just agree with what is on his uniform is all. Thanks for all your help and opinions Scott

    ww2 USN cpo greys

    Didn't think they had grey jumpers.
  8. Was this beauty on ebay? If it was I thought about throwing a bid at it but forgot. I am glad you got it. Nice find Jay Scott
  9. Hi Everyone I recently picked up this ww2 USN cpo greys on ebay. I know they were used for a short period of time. I just really liked the way these looked and when I saw it was a Specialty rate A I couldn't pass it up. It has a name in it but I know its not researchable since he wasn't on a boat. Let me know what you all think Thanks Scott
  10. Mark Yes it looks correct for a ww2 us navy uniform. Its a seabees metalsmith 2nd class. I don't see anything wrong with it. I wouldn't pay more than 25 for it.
  11. Thanks everyone for the great replies. I have learned a lot off of this thread. I didn't know that during ww1 that they never issued the purple heart to people but after. Thanks a ton Scott
  12. Yeah it has a great home. Im really not that heavy of a ww1 collector but I seem to come across it by accident. So I purchase it. Any more opinions? Thanks Scott
  13. Thanks Everyone What got me was the paperwork with the PH. If it was the PH alone without the paperwork I would have passed. Scott
  14. Hi Everyone, I had the day off today, So I decided to go hit up some local antique malls. I went to one of my favorite ones and was just looking around and came across this interesting PH set. When I first glanced at it I saw that it had the case and thought it was a ww2 PH. I asked the antique mall person if I could take a closer look at it and she opened the case and I looked at it and come to find out that the man was gassed during ww1 while fighting with the 32nd division C Company 127th Infantry at the Chateau Thierry. He was awarded the PH 26 years after the war. Was this common? All
