  1. Actually, the 1 and 2 badges are the Cazadors and Batallón de Ligeros, which are Spanish units from that war. The 24 is also Spanish, but could be confused with Belgian and and French insignia of WW1. If someone has some other info that contradicts this then please post it. Thanks, John
  2. Salvage Sailor, What items in the pics I posted are Belgian? He had more buttons in this group. Some were Marked BMI Infantry, which I assume was from some military school and some antique NYPD uniform buttons. These buttons were not part of the belt, but they were in his house, so, they belonged to someone in his family. Maybe to the same family member who made the Hate belt??? Maybe another family member?? Either way, all the buttons were antique and dated to The 40s or earlier
  3. I went back today to make sure I didn’t miss anything and found this buckle. It looks a bit crude to me, but I would think that it is a real period buckle based on the other stuff I bought. I would bet a million bucks that there is more stuff in that house related to the Span Am war
  4. So, I’m going to yard sales today and I spot two Spanish Collar brass from the Span Am war. I ask the man about where he found these and he said... “ I have many more in my basement” . Of course I said, “ Well, May I look at them?” He pulls out everything you see pictured. I told him they were mostly Spanish items from the Span Am war. Then I asked where did he get so many Spanish items of this period. He said they were his great grandfather’s items that he had from his Army days. ( The seller was a Vietnam Navy Vet and in his 70s) and they were all attached to a rotted leather belt. He said
  5. Hi, I pulled this off a beat up WW2 shirt along with the rank patches and OS bars. Is this patch a theater made variant? Or, is it made in the US from a different manufacturer? It is more oblong and not perfectly circular like an issued patch would be. Thanks
  6. Yes, I placed these on eBay and they just recently sold.
  7. Yeah, it has stamping. No Kriegsmarine stamps though. Here they are
  8. Thanks for all the input. I found this on the net. Looks like it was a Civil Defense issue item: People who grew up in the 1950s agree that the world is a very different place now. Back then, children walked to school with their friends, no worry about having a parent chaperone them. A trip to the corner store for candy or comic books was also a casual affair. But, because of the threat of nuclear war, young students wore dog tags issued by their school. Referred to as “metal identification tags” these civil defense dog tags were issued to students in school districts across the Un
  9. Good eye!! I didn't even see the Board of Education stamp on the back
  10. Wow, I didn’t know that Dependent dog tags existed! Were they for family members living OS during the war? Or did they continue to use these after WWII?
  11. I have this Dog Tag Named to Irene Danis. It has a date of 1942 on it, but I don’t recognize the format of the imprinted information. It doesn’t follow the standard seen on WWII tags. Can anyone identify what service or organization this tag represents? Thanks
  12. Bracelet. Missing one side, but should be easy to restore. Parts for these bracelets are Easily found
