  1. I have to agree, this is an amazing group you have. Thank you for sharing with us.
  2. A very interesting and incredible grouping, thanks for sharing.
  3. What ribbons/medals are you looking for. Please pm me with your list. Alex
  4. Thank you again Geoff for the information. Now the fun part begins. Did his service records mention how he was awarded the Naval Occupation Medal? Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.
  5. I forgot to add that this lot came from an estate in San Diego per the auction house. Thank you all for information sent on this Marine. I think this one warrants addition research.
  6. I recently acquired this group from an auction house on a whim. The price was right and I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures. My tablet is having issues transferring the photos from my phone.The clothing bag and ties are named to a Sgt. L. P. Perry. The clothing bag was attacked by moths and has seen better days. The two complete alpha uniforms, one Eisenhower and the other, a standard 4 pocket are complete with shirts, ties, and trousers. These are all in very good condition. The cover could use a little cleaning but is in otherwise in good condition. None of the medals or shooting badges are named and they appear to be period correct. I do not know anything about this Marine but he appeared to have joined prior to the conclusion of the WW 2 based on his medals. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Enjoy,
  7. Does this look legit? I know I the ribbon is not correct and I have the opportunity to purchase this item. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Awesome grouping thank you for sharing. I was surprised not to see the “V” device attached to the Bronze Star. I thought only the Army issued Bronze Star medals without this device.
  9. Thank you for the information.
  10. I recently purchased a Korean War Marines Vandegrift jacket from a flea market. The jacket had the following ribbons: Navy/Marine Corpd Medal, Good Conduct Medal, gold life saving award, National Defense Service Medal, Korean War Campaign Medal, South Korean Presidential Unit Citation. The jacket is unnamed to Sergeant with no hash marks. The jacket had a pair of Navy/Marine Corps gold jump wings (pin back). My question is, what year did the Marines first issue this style of jump wings?, and would there have been a particular Marine Corps Airbourne Unit serving in Korea during the war? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. One of the best usmc ww1 groups I've seen! Thank you for sharing.
