  1. Found this over the weekend and I have no idea what it could be.


    It is made out of wet weather clothing bags, a WW2 wool blanket and a piece of parachute material.


    Parka has two exterior pockets and one interior, it is a long length going to mid thigh, hood is lined with parachute silk and the rest the WW2 blanket. No tags, written name, sizing anything on it other than the zipper is made by RIES. Approximately a size 40, I'm a 42 and could just get the zipper to touch. Hood has a draw string and it looks to be made from the tie from the wet weather bag.


    Can anyone give me some hints as to what, where or when this is?


    Starting off with a front and back. I'm currently resizing these images. I'll post as I get them done.



  2. The Germans even produced their own manuals for use with captured weapons and most were given German military designations. I was trying to find what they called the Thompson and discovered this list:

    The law says medals awarded by Congress. Are you stating that 99% of the medal collectors on the forum have a Congressional Medal of Honor? :blink:


    I had a guy come into my shop and get visibly upset by the fact that I have a WW2 Cased Silver Star for sale. He came right up to me at the counter and told me that I couldn't sell that. "That is illegal! You can't sell any of these medals!". I tried to explain to him that the only one I couldn't sell was the MOH. This guy huffed and puffed walked out and then came back a few minutes later to show me the same legal quote as above on his phone. Again I told him that it only pertained to the MOH. Well he threatened to call the state police and that my business would be shut down. Well here we are 5 months later and I'm still open for business.

  4. Anyway that it would be tried could end up in a big hassle.


    Does anyone else remember when BG Joe Foss was stopped by airport security for trying to get on a flight carrying an "object with sharp edges"? The rent a cops running the metal detector tried to confiscate his MOH, saying it could be used as a weapon. None of them knew what the medal was.
