  6. Hi Everyone, I was called last week by the niece of a warrant officer who served 34 years in the Navy, asking if I was interested in his items. Well I am now the caretaker of CWO Anthony Karetnuk’s WWII items. The family did hold on to his framed medal set and said if they ever part with it I’ll get the call. Hope you enjoy! CWO Karetnuk served on the SSN 579 (Swordfish) for 9 War patrols and the SS 408 (Sennet) for 3 war patrols.
  7. No problem. I will take a pic of it this evening after work.
  8. Hi everyone, I picked up this interesting M1 early this year locally. Its a McCord front seam swivel bail, heat stamp of 74D and still has cork. It has painted in red Air Force rank, which must have been done post war. But still neat! Hope you enjoy. Thanks Jeff
  9. Here is a nice small grouping from 1SG Mundee a Big Red One Veteran. I bought this from his granddaughter on Memorial Day this year. PH numbered, BS named, Two photos, dog tag, discharge paper, CIB, service stripes. I have found some records that he was in the 18th Infantry L Co and was awarded his BS in Normandy on 9 June 1944. He is buried at Arlington. Hope you all enjoy! Jeff

  14. I just wanted to say thank you to all for the comments and messages. This is the first time I have ever listened something like this. Its a learning curve for sure. At the end of the day and what ever the out come, I have learned a lot! Thank you! Jeff
  15. So, I am the current owner of this grouping. I did set a reserve for the sole purpose of attempting to keep the grouping together. If that will work or not I do not know. It was not an easy decision to put this up for sale but it is for sale. If any of you have any questions please ask. Thanks Jeff
  16. Thank you so much! I never thought about how the size can help determine an original or not.. again I really appreciate it! Thanks Jeff
  17. Hey Guys, I was wondering if anyone can help me with this Norman Rockwell war bond poster. I feel it looks good but wanted other opinions, as to if its period and a value. I am thinking of selling her and any input would be great!
