  1. It may be a New York Guard crest (not a New York National Guard). Try a google search for New York Guard - I saw a number of their crests and most had the letters NYG . I'm very, very far from knowledgeable so hopefully someone who is will come along.
  2. Phenomenal thread !! Thank you to everyone who posted.
  3. Wish I had one hand-painted like this one only all over, not just partial. That's a neat paint job. Lynne
  4. Vintage, I've really enjoyed the evolution of the story of your Dad's helmet. And mega kudos to 72psb for his part in the finale. Great photos too ! Lynne
  5. Does this seller also do 'bidders names private' auctions ?
  6. Is that the "rattlesnake"/"snake: camo on the helmet. Nice...
  7. While I already knew the difference in "pistol" and "revolver" regarding military nomenclature, I am still puzzled by the "REVOLVER" stamp on the belt I've posted. Maybe it's a moot point but I'm still bugged. Would not the holsters for the WWI/WWII era Colt 1911 semi-auto as well as the Colt 1917 revolver fit this pistol belt and other pistol belts of the era? If so, why is the stamp "REVOLVER" necessary ? And to the heart of my question about my belt, is it consensus that information is limited or nonexistent as to the purpose of having THAT many snaps on a belt ? Lynne
  8. Hi, Doyler. Thank you for posting. I don't have any M14 pouches to try, but does it appear that the snaps on this belt are too close together to fit those pouches side by side? Also, any idea about that word that looks like "REVOLVER" in my "yellow" enhanced photo ? Lynne
  9. Thank you, Eric, for your reply. One thing about the pistol belt in my post is the word "REVOLVER" (at least, that's what it looks like to me) as part of the manufacturer's stamp. I was wondering about that. Also the date appears to be Oct of 1950. Lynne
  10. Hello to all. I've read all of the references here on the Forum about the M1936 pistol belts so I'm totally confused. Please take a look at these photos and tell me what this is. Many thanks, Lynne
  11. I wish. Although we got a few pieces of clothing, patches had been removed. Thank muchly for the information. Lynne C.
  12. Hello to all. Any information at all on this challenge coin will be greatly appreciated. Diameter is 2"; thickness approx 3/8". Color is pale gold with black detail. Original owner was SF MSgt retired and came in a box of his "stuff" that we purchased from a family member who knew little of the sergeant's military history except for both IRAQ and Afghanistan tours. Any comments will be appreciated. Lynne C.
  13. Pretty sure it's for the US Springfield "Trapdoor" rifle. There are several "models" of this really beautiful weapon, and iIdon't know if the hammer changed in any of them. Here's a website that might help. And there are other folks here on the Forum that are 'way more knowledgeable than I am. http://www.trapdoorcollector.com/ Lynne
  14. After visiting the American Cemetery at Colleville Sur Mer, we quite by accident came upon the La Cambe German military cemetery. I seem to recall it's only a short distance from the American Cemetery. Over 20,000 souls are buried here. Without describing, I just have to highly recommend that you include this melancholy and impressive place on your visit. Husband Tom and I were so fortunate to have visited the Normandy area twice. We have always wished to have been able to stay months there. Lynne
