  1. Maybe he was WW2 Army and got Air Medal and PUC then finished his career in Koran and Vietnam in Marines?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. May have had the ribbon and clasp replaced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I would have thought they are legitimate. Maybe someone found a supply of unissued Mills gear. But anything can be faked. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’d like a military russet original but know it will be hard to find. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I don’t have a holster but will be looking for a holster and belt. Preferably the brown leather type. I think they changed to black leather about 1960.
  6. Here’s the Pistol. I suspect the box is a reproduction. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ll try to get some pictures and post them. It appears fired or carried very little after Arsenal Parkerized.
  8. Thanks for checking. Any idea who else would have been issued these pistols besides Generals? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. My friend tried to photograph it but they quality is poor. It is identical to one that recently sold on Gunbroker for over $5000 but had the General's ribbons. That one was serial number 567675, just 600 numbers different from my friend's 567059. Looks and condition are identical.
  10. My good friend bought a Parkerized Colt .32 Auto Pistol marked US Property. The serial number is 567059. Is there anyway to find out if this Pistol was ever issued to a General Officer in the Army? Any assistance appreciated.
  11. You are correct. The 302nd FA was part of the 76th Division in WW1. Early in the war they called the Divisions: Regular Army, National Army or National Guard. National Army Divisions were originally composed of Drafted soldiers, not Volunteers. By 1918 these designations were dropped and the Collar disc with USNA were no longer made. The US (NA) 302 is early War.
  12. Thanks. I’d thought the large straight in pins were 1930s vintage or early War period. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Is this a Noble? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
