  1. Same here..... and, according to the regs, it was worn on the right side.
  2. Man, that stinks! Having used College Park before, the security I thought was pretty tight, this coming from a NSA/DIA retired guy! Hope they throw the book at this clown!
  3. David, Have sold some of it off. I'm semi-retired from collecting. Have a couple more that I didn't show. Right now, I'm laying in Johns Hopkins hospital. Hopefully, home tomorrow to recover. Then again, if the MRI today shows the infection in my foot spread to the bone, god knows what's next. Anyway, glad you like them! John
  4. Just judging by the construction. Can't remember when the gold for 12 years honorable service came into use, but think it was in the 50's. There are several guys on here that collect bullion rates.
  5. I'd say the price is fair retail, the officers shirt actually being the rarest part.
  6. Service of Supply. Looks unmessed with too. A lot of SOS personnnel were in the Quartermaster end of things, which given Service of Supply, makes perfect sense! lol Looks like a nice tunic. Wonder if there is a name?
  7. AB, I'm getting old..... everything is shrinking! lol
  8. I didn't do a ton of research on him, never sent to St. Louis for his records. Sold it in one of my many uniform dumps. Have shrunk my uniform collection down from 33 storage tubs to two, and feel great about the shrinkage! John
  9. Actually, with a bit of practice on a flat surface, you can do it. Tools are another story! I've never, ever, never seen anyone who could engrave a tool. My oldest son is retired from the AF, and was in vehicle maintenance and had to engrave tools. I learned to engrave from my dad, who was a photoengraver, and my tool engraving looked like the work of a non too coordinated monkey! Back in the 70's there was a move on to engrave your drivers lic number on valuables, and like you say, hard to do. I'd bet my eye teeth this was done with an pencil engraver though! I totally agree about the fr
  10. I know diddly about WW1 USMC, but I do know engraving. 150% sure it is electro pen. Like stated above, there are no breaks in the engraving. Add that lack of aging, and you have a budding small businessman! My .02 John
