  1. I don't collect DUI's and I am having trouble finding anything online. Did the 689th ever create a DUI? Was it only on paper or did it actually get made. The unit was around for such a short time there just is not a lot out there about them in WW2. I'm hoping one of you with DUI reference material can chime in. I have a yard long of one of the batteries but the DUI's they are wearing are too small to make out. Thanks
  2. Kind of figured that would be the reply. Thank you.
  3. As someone who primarily collects collar insignia, I am curious about this patch. It's roughly 4 inches tall. Is this one of the Pakistani made patches, or just something that was made for a blazer, i.e. a reunion? The only similar things I can find are modern day machine made patches. What era does this even fall? Thanks
  4. I was one of the ones that made it back to Germany. We were in-processing back into Germany when a Major came in and stopped the brief we were doing. Said we all just got orders to go back and rejoin the unit. Thought he was funny as hell till we realized he was serious.
  5. Picked this up. Love posters like this. Haven’t seen another in a long time. Ignore the crack running thru it, it’s just the glass that got broken.
  6. I needed a 1915 patton to fill a hole and was looking hard at one of the many tent peg scabbard sabers they had up for sell. But that's just my luck.
  7. Wow, some of that stuff went cheap. If i had not been furloughed myself I would have been all over several items. But, I guess I was not the only one. Sign of the times.
  8. Some great looking items in there for sure!
  9. Left one is a variant of the 54th cavalry brigade, but not sure which specific unit.
  10. Picked up another Patton saber awhile back and finally decided it needed a knot to go with it. Just so happened that a few popped up from Arizona about the time I started looking. Nothing really unusual about it except that it appears to be unit marked with "2 K 55". Hadn't seen another so thought I would post here for posterity.
  11. Thought I would bump this back to the top with the 2 serial number I saw at the Dallas show today 1913 7380 Type 3 scabbard 1914 21404 Type 3 scabbard
  12. For those that care, this is now out on video here stateside, I just picked up a copy and will be watching it tonight.
  13. Having just seen this old thread, thought I would post this photo I posted on another thread. It shows a trooper with a Patton sword with what appears to be a 1904 knot. The picture is just fuzzy enough to be unable to tell whether or not the sword scabbard has a tent peg protrusion on the bottom, but I believe it is a fairly early picture.
