  1. http://dmna.ny.gov/historic/heraldry/arngdui/27thInfDiv52ndFABDE.htm I didn't see that one. Very similar to the NYS Guard DI's.
  2. New York State Guard Brigade DUI. I'm not sure which one though as this one is obsolete.
  3. I didn't even know that there were rubber buttons during the Civil War. Amazing item. Is there any record of other units receiving these?
  4. The revolver could be a Confederate copy. Seeing the shade difference between the cylinder and the frame. The frame could be brass. The firm Griswold and Gunnison made copies of the 1851 Colt and the 1858 Remington both with brass frames.
  5. How common is the name Elsea? I know you were a bit excited when I listed that WW1 document signed by an Elsea. Congratulations on finding a few more pieces.
  6. Got this mixed in with a small lot of other badges/pins/patches. Could anyone give me an idea as to age or even if it is US?
  7. Could you give a close up of the markings on the anvil?
  8. It could also be a reissue of the WW1 BAR bandoleers. I'm searching to see if I have a photo of mine on the computer.
  9. I just happened to be skimming that site and saw the listing. I never bought anything there or have heard of it's reputation.
  10. There is a patch similar to this over on: http://www.snyderstreasures.com/pages/patcheswwi.htm. They have it listed as an early Chemical Battalion patch.
  11. Naval Reserve Medal Got anymore for me?
  12. I figure that as well. The Bolivians didn't even adopt this camo till the early 1980's. SGT Gregg served from the early 60's to the mid 80's. He could have been involved but not in this uniform.
  13. Here are the pants. Again with exposed buttons and rather small cargo pockets.
  14. I acquired quite a bit that belonged to single SF soldier. Mixed in with the normal jungle fatigues and ERDL was this set. I know to buy the item but the story with this set is that he was involved in the raid that killed Che Guevara. Bolivian made uniform, jacket and pants. Similar to either our woodland or ERDL. All pockets have exposed buttons.

    Here is a close up on the buttons and wings. One is a USN cuff button but I don't know what era The one with the B on it I'm unsure if it is military or not. Two piece stamped brass and says Superior Quality on the reverse. The other with Eagle and shield is also two piece construction brass on steel and is unmarked.
