  1. Well, here is the link: https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/50401373
  2. Someone had the classic "I'm all in" bidding technique at the end but if failed. Whoever won this helmet must have had a large high bid on it. I noticed the winner remained the same high bidder the entire time. It was at 971 or so with 30 seconds to go and jumped to almost 2900. Classic eBay move. Sometimes I really hate online bidding. If its a 7 day auction then its really a 1 minute auction with the remaining 6 days, 23 hours and 59 minutes to gather interest.
  3. Kansas City. Came with an estate buyout. A local picker purchased the estate from the son a year or so ago. He didn't have mind to get or keep the name because he isn't a military collector. Its been in storage since and he just decided to put it up for auction this last week. That's when I obtained it.
  4. Feel free to pm me if you have questions or concerns regarding this helmet. Or even if you would like additional photos. This is definitely one you have to hold in your hands to appreciate it. Thanks for the opinions, but I know where it came from.
  5. Thanks for the reply. That's the patch I was referring to. I read the article in Yank. It talks about the French forces training in the US but there is no information regarding the patches. I have seen a few photos of US soldiers wearing the patch on the right sleeve. I've also seen documentation referring to approval for wear of the "France War Aid" patch. I'll try to post some photos.
  6. Does anyone know what the France War Aid patch was issued for? I just obtained a 90th Infantry Division uniform with the France patch on the right sleeve. I can't find any information regarding why they were worn. Any info would help. Thanks
  7. I'm leaning toward the 513th PIR. I've checked all of the 23rd rosters and have not located him. I have a PH grouping to a documented 23rd HQ ST member and have checked all over the place for the name on your PH but have been unsuccessful. Not saying there's no possibility, but I can't find him on any of the rosters. How did you get the info that he was with the 23rd?
  8. Here is another example of a radioman wing that was theater made: http://www.flyingtigerantiques.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=fta&Product_Code=0u03afw20000atm-CON&Category_Code=
  9. I've had this grouping for a while. It's been on display in my personal collection. It came directly from the vet. I figured it was time to show this extremely rare grouping. He was in the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, 603rd Camouflage Engineers. Included in this grouping is a German banner, flare gun with the spent casing still in the barrel, an original Patton Prayer card, his cased PH along with the piece of shrapnel that he was struck by on 03/13/1945, two pieces of parachute material from supply drops, a hand drawn map of his routes, miscellaneous paperwork and a route map of the 23rd
  10. I just may know someone that has a MOH W/B plastic coated ribbon
  11. Does anyone know what this patch is? Ive spent hours trying to find it and Ive came up with nothing. Thanks in advance
