  1. So glad I have sold the bulk of my stuff in the last 20 +years on EBay and don’t have anything to sell anymore. Kurt🙏
  2. Photos of the Japanese captured signed flag with the veteran in a period photo from wartime are very difficult to find; congrats on the acquisition and a Gyrene to boot! Kurt
  3. Really nice grouping and congrats! I have that book on the bookshelf and although it has be quite a few years since I read it, I still distinctly remember the night time Fallschirmjager attack described in the book. To have a group from a prominent officer of the 115th is just really cool. Thanks for posting. Kurt
  4. Looking for the WWII USMC KIA Purple Heart to Leonard A. Booker. His rank was warrant officer so it will be WO on the Purple Heart. Kurt Barickman
  5. The flag is great! So rare to have a flag and a photo of the veteran holding it and its a vintage photo. Congrats! Kurt
  6. Robert, you always amaze us with your fantastic collection. Thanks for your continuing sharing of your collection. Kurt
  7. Still has the motto, maker, handle not cracked. I had one in the same condition that I personally bought from a Paramarine who lived two blocks from me for $1500 about 15-20 years ago and I thought I did well. My 2 cents. Kurt
  8. Different symbols on the buttons and belt buckles denote the different states they were from; similar to US National Guard units that could be mobilized in time of war as was the case in Imperial Germany once it was united in 1871. Treu Fest are from Bavaria if my memory serves me correctly. Keep doing show and tell! The different cockades also from different spikes with the front plates being different also denoting the different German states; Saxony, Prussia, Baden-Wurtenberg, etc. Kurt
  9. Really neat pickup! Been many years since I have stumbled upon a box of WWI souvenirs and along with the US veteran's uniform items as well. Kurt
  10. Really nice example of a CGGC; a member of the Legion here in Albert Lea was also on the Taney on Dec. 7th. Thanks for sharing. Kurt
  11. Love to hear about the PT jumper grouping? Kurt
  12. The current owner is a good friend of mine and he drove to Texas and bought this extensive group from Bob several years ago. Kurt
  13. Yes that is a good book! Read it last year, Kurt
