  1. I've recently purchased 2 copies of this flyer launched on Caen by the USAAF on 6th and 7th of June -1944 before the bombings by the 8th USAAF. Unfortunately, time has done his work and they're not in a nice condition but they stay nice pieces of D-Day history I'm happy to share on the forum.
  2. EBay can be a goldmine sometimes, if you're Lucky enough to be the one and only bidder. I recently bought a 101st AB type 7 ( pics are posted here for ID help) for the starting price of 29 euros , according to current exchange rate it is a little bit more than 32 USD. To be honnest, I've been very surprised to get it at this bargain price.....my lucky day of the year I suppose..
  3. Hello everybody Got that one on EBay last week, just one bid, and I was the only one so it was the winning bid. I've been searching the net, including M.Bando's website but couldn't find a patch that really looked like that one. For me it has some type 7 signs ( crimped beak) but i'm not sure....really not sure ! Thanks to the ones who will help !
  4. Hello The book is available from Amazon.fr : https://www.amazon.fr/101st-airborne-%C3%A9cussons-Kevin-Delaitre/dp/2912994659/ref=olp_product_details?_encoding=UTF8&me= or EBay : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/NEW-101ST-AIRBORNE-PATCH-BOOK-COVERING-ALL-KNOWN-TYPES-HANDY-REFERENCE/113846368741?hash=item1a81c5b9e5:g:xcIAAOSwgjddSr5P I suppose that if you do a Google search, you'll also find it on french militaria websites
  5. Thanks for sharing pics of genuine ones . The poor copies from this UK seller went for over 450 bucks, what a shame ! I'm really glad to know this forum where there's always somebody to help and provide détails, big thanks to all of you. I'm Learning a lot from here.
  6. Thanks for your opinions. Exactly what I suspected. One day left and already 200 USD !
  7. I just came across these ones on EBay and even if I'm not a long time collector, it sounds to me like cheap reproductions. It doesn't look like the ones on Mark Bando's website. Your opinions are welcome ! Thanks ! https://www.ebay.com/itm/X2-English-Theatre-made-ww2-rare-101st-airborne-screaming-eagle-cloth-patches/312679045691?hash=item48cd1f9a3b:g:YjwAAOSwNCtdF9S7
  8. Too bad you couldn't visit in Normandy all the places you wanted to and I'm really disappointed for you. Since the 2015 terrorists attacks here in France, we're on a permanent high level of security for any public event and of course it is more extended when you have political figures on the sites. We even had a terrorist attack in Lyon on May 24th, that explains why security was so tight for the D-Day 75th célébrations.
  9. Wow ! Stunning ! Thanks for sharing !
  10. I think that Mark Bando's website can help..I'm new in collecting patches, but what I've learned from the experts on the board, is that "greenback" patches are WW2 for sure. http://www.101airborneww2.com/eaglepatchcorner.html
  11. Thank you guys for your precious help ! I'm glad to know that it's a WW2 original !
  12. Thanks a lot for the responses ! Here are more pics from both bails, straps, and a clearer one of number stamped :
  13. Hi everybody ! I recently bought this M1 shell more or less 100 USD ( according to current exchange rate) and would like to know what are your thoughts about it ? I'ts marked 617A Inside, fixed bails, and front seam...genuine WW2 or not ?? Thanks !
