  1. Awesome! I don't fully understand what all that means, what organization/unit does it say he served with? I can understand that Sig C is Signal Corps, but what does the rest mean? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  2. I'm not home right now but when I can get the uniform in hand again I'll try taking another picture and posting it again. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  3. I'd figure you could make a jig that the helmet could be set and compressed it, think those big long wood C clamps (don't know their actual name), a rosebud tip on an OA torch and heat it up good, and compress it in the jig. If you do it right (and honestly just a vise, ball peen, and the right shaped heavy object would probably be fine instead of a whole jig) it'll be close to where it should be, and a quick run with TIG and filler would do it in good. I would figure it doesn't really need to be welded on both sides of the crack, or for complete penetration. Just don't cool it off quick after
  4. Reminds me of a war memorial in the town I live in. There's a brass looking copy of an M1, on a rifle butt between 2 boots. Could be something similar. Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  5. The pants came with the uniform. I thought I showed them but guess I didn't. The pants appear to both be the same type of "breeches". I'll post both a picture I took of the uniform pieces I couldn't pick up, and the pants I got with this uniform. The pictures of the uniform I did not buy are fairly poor, but it's what I've got. Also thanks for all the info, I appreciate it greatly! Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  6. Out of curiosity, does anyone know what the green felt/piping on the garrison cap might mean? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  7. Picked this up today, how'd I do for 30 dollars? Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  8. Just bought this, probably spent too much but I think it was well worth it. There was another jacket, a hygiene/sewing kit, and riders pants, that I did not purchase. However, included in what I got was a garrison cap with green piping and US insignia. A pre-war RIA haversack (not sure of the model, M1904?), which has the mans service number, matching the one in his jacket. Complete US M1917, rougher shape, but possible shrapnel damage? Hopefully not just some kids .22. A pair of puttees, and leather cavalry gaiters. 2x dress caps. One has an eagle badge, the other a signal Corp badge. M19
  9. Wow. That's a one of a kind grouping, awesome! Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  10. Talk about some old tech, that's amazing. It almost doesn't even look like a welding rig, that's awesome! Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
  11. Those are great! The first picture is killer, thanks! Sent from my SM-J327V using Tapatalk
