  1. Wanted to know if this real or a reproduction? Also, if it is real, can I please have an approximate value? Thanks in advance for you help!!!
  2. I've owned WWII helmets that have had the sweatbands mounted to the nape strap, that is not that uncommon. I've also seen and owned helmets with sweatbands mounted sideways. The adjustment is on the side as opposed to the back. Soldiers did whatever they wanted to make their lives a little better. Not sure what regulation there would be against that.
  3. Nice helmet!!! Looks like a lot of the signatures are from Reading. Not sure how they got Dick Winter's signature though, I don't believe I've ever seen him there, and he rarely signed stuff other than prints for Valor Studios.
  4. Nice find!! I love the para helmets also.
  5. It looks like a true barn find!!!! Love it!!!
  6. That's awesome!!! Thank-you for the info!!!! I couldn't find a tag anywhere. Would love to hang it on my wall, I guess I would need some sort of frame.
  7. I picked up this tank flag today, but I'm really not sure what it would be used for or what era it is from. It appears older. Did the US fly flags on their tanks, or would this be some sort of headquarters flag? Thank-you for your help!!
  8. Not sure why that last picture looked weird. I posted it again.
  9. I had to buy this liner, it's another star painted helmet/liner. Thought I would renew the post. Would be nice to know the meaning of it. Does anyone else have any they can post here.
  10. I just read his citation, that is crazy what he did. Why did it take until 2014 for him to get the MOH? That seems so wrong in so many ways.
  11. Thank-you guys!!! I learned some things!! Leave it to me to find a mystery. Lol!! If any of you guys are interested in this uniform, please let me know. I will be listing it for sale either here or on ebay. I would rather one of you ribbon guys get it. Thanks again!!!
  12. Do you think he was in WWII or just an occupying force after the war? Did guys get shipped to Europe to work on infrastructure, he was a part of the 5th engineering battalion. That is what his DI's represent.
  13. Wow, that is sweet!!! Congratulations!!!
  14. How does the fourragere fit in? Are you allowed to wear these if you didn't participate in the fighting?
  15. I'm having a hard time figuring this jacket out. He obviously was in Europe, but he doesn't have a European ribbon, nor does he have a WWII victory ribbon. He has a service stripe but no overseas stripe. Is it possible the jacket is missing a ribbon bar? I realize I dont know half of what you guys know, but does any of this make sense? Also, the jacket came out of the Somerset Pa area, I'm guessing those national guard units mentioned wouldn't be correct.
  16. Are those laundry numbers on the bottom of the straps?
  17. Thank-you Salvage Sailor, I think you nailed it!!!
  18. I need some help with identifying a ribbon. I purchase this jacket and cap from a thrift store, and I have no idea what the ribbon is on the far right. It almost looks like a prisioner of war ribbon, but it isn't exact from the examples I found. I'm also not sure what the 80-888 numbers are. There is also a S-O-989 number. Thank-you for your help!!!
