  1. Hey all, I've had this photo tucked away for years now, it finally surfaced this morning! Does anyone have a good guess on what Academy this is from? Can't see the hat badge, it's covered by the plume. Very fancy though for a cadet photo! Thanks in advance..... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  2. Hey all, My friend has this in his shop for sale, and I'm not sure if it's something that I need, but wanted to check to see if there is something important I'm missing. The photo is dated 1944, and it's from Hawaii. It is of an Army baseball team, named the Rangers. Is it anything significant, or is it just an Army baseball team? Thanks in advance if anyone has some insight... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  3. Hello all, I received this trophy the other day, and was told that this came out of a collection of stuff from the White House. I have done some basic research and have not found anything. So I thought I would try my luck here. It has a very military-esque look. If you have any insight, it would be greatly appreciated. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  4. Hey all, I picked this little lot of Vietnam era stuff, the gentleman was a Vietnamese Ranger advisor. Although the collection I purchased is not very large, it has a couple of unusual items, namely the "short timers" sheet, the early engraved lighter, and the Ranger pocket badge. Would like to hear some input on your thoughts on this collection..... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  5. They do say US Army, I meant to say the box or rings weren't marked otherwise. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  6. Hello all, I picked this set up today, they are unused in the original box, but no markings. Do you all think WWI or WWII? Just trying to narrow it down. I know they made a lot of stuff from aluminum in WWI. Thanks for input in advance..... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  7. It was a cartridge belt, the top edge you can see where the flaps were cut off, and there is stitching holes where the pouch bottoms were. I still love the belt, it's not in terrible condition otherwise, I suppose I will just get some pouches to attach, and salvage it the best I can. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  8. Hey all, I found the dated 1916/17 Mills cartridge belt in a house I was cleaning out. I got all excited when I found it, but then my heart sank when I opened it....someone had removed all of the pockets, and cut off all of the tops! Who or why would someone do this? Any ideas? Better question is, what to do with it now? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  9. If you are ever looking for an original of this poster, I have an original 38"x60" GEL 767 of this poster, but has one small issue, it was found torn down the middle and then taped back together. I have been hesitant to remove the tape to have it repaired correctly. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  10. The estate that it was purchased from was from a WWII Army Air Force Officer, so that is why I immediately thought military. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  11. Could rightly be, it is entirely too thin to make any uniform, unless you wanted a snazzy camouflage dress shirt! The piece that I have is a yard wide, and 4 yards long! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  12. Hello all, I recently went to an estate sale, in one of the rooms was a large amount of fabric, dating from the early 1900's to the 1960's. In one of the boxes, I found this piece of woodland camouflage fabric. The pattern is very nice, the problem is the fabric is very thin, almost like a summer dress shirt thin. Anyone have any input? Thanks in advance. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  13. I found this today in a local junk shop. Not exactly sure what this was used for, maybe luggage? It's the first I've seen in this long style. Any input is appreciated....
  14. Hello, Picked this up today in a local little junk shop, this is the second I have found with the clutch backs broken off, must have been a manufacturing problem....
