  1. My goal this year is to take my small collection of WW2 field gear and assemble it onto a mannequin display, now that I have the space. Also to find any pieces for the display that I may be missing. Besides that, I'll continue looking to add 100th Division items to my collection
  2. Have you checked what the humidity % is in the room? You may be okay as is. Forced hot air systems are pretty common. But if it is too dry you can always add a small humidifier, just make sure it stays at relative humidity level, otherwise you can end up with even more issues.
  3. Nice, the 157th was all over Western Europe attached to several armies. I think they were one of the first units into Paris. They were attached to the 100th from March 17 to March 20, 1945. Anything in the album that would help you ID the vet or family it belonged to?
  4. Nice find, I'm curious as to what engineer unit the photos are from? Would love to see some of them if you have a chance to post a few.
  5. I think you are right - 1960's theater made for 1st brigade, 8th division. Here's one that sold last month On Ebay for $129, so you made out real well! https://www.ebay.com/itm/1960s-US-Army-Theater-Made-1st-Bde-Brigade-8th-Infantry-Division-Twill-Patch-/193728195548?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292
  6. Last one sold on Ebay for $15, some others sitting for BIN at $30 to give you an idea on value
  7. This would be the patch for ETO HQ, but looks to be the right facing eagle variation. British made wool version i think? Others could probably say for sure if you have a pic of the back of the patch
  8. Close up of the photo showing 100th ID shoulder patches on a couple of the field jackets;
  9. Here is a photo I picked up recently off Ebay of members of Cannon Company, 399th Infantry Regiment. The photo was taken by the Signal Corps on 12/8/44 near Sarreinsberg, France - just a few miles southwest of Bitche. Of the five soldiers in the photo, two of them would end up being WIA, according to the division roster.
  10. I love that Christmas '44 issue of Yank magazine - very colorful and it displays well
  11. It's a very poignant photo and does make you wonder what happened. Thanks for sharing!
  12. I've noticed the one with the kids is quite common. There's always a half dozen or so on Ebay at any given moment. I've never seen the others that vintageproductions mentioned though, so I'll have to keep an eye out for them.
  13. Here's my contribution to this thread. Nothing rare, but I started picking them up this past year whenever I see them for a few bucks
  14. It doesn't have any hallmark on the back, but I had figured it was probably early WWII when the division started mobilizing. My other screw back doesn't either, and I just realized now is a different type of screw back;
