  1. Unfortunately you may be looking for a needle in a stack of needles.
  2. He might be a member here or at least checks in from time to time. He fits right in with Rick of Pawn Stars.
  3. Another thing to consider is that this being a jacket from a tailor in Colorado and looks to be hand dated 9/44, it would be a stretch for it to have made it to England and or Holland at that time. I would also expect it to show evidence that it had all the ribbons, jump wings, CIB, PUC, and officers collar and rank insignia on it. He states it shows no evidence of any of that having been on it. No sir! Run far and fast.
  4. Man, this jacket looks BAD. Lillyman was from Skaneateles, NY and this jacket was tailored in Colorado. The 101st patch is post war if its original at all. The Pathfinder torch also looks to be a repro. All the insignia looks to have been freshly sewn. No "shadow" or imprint on the inside. The seller isn't playing up that it supposedly was Frank Lillymans jacket. If it really was his he would have posted more about him. It's purposely vague. Why do people continue to buy from this seller? I'd cringe everytime he popped
  5. Agreed that the bidding is insane on them. Getting locked down? That's why it's a good idea to have several accounts!
  6. Has anyone noticed that since the Covid scare that eBay seems to be letting the sale of Purple Hearts and other items go through to completion? I'm sure it's due to them working from home. So if you have some you want to sell or buy, belly up folks!
  7. I took a look at the engraving on the reverse of this medal and find it to be sloppy and not like any official hand engraving that I have seen. Thoughts? Not sure if this belongs in this section or not. I didn't want to step on the sales post.
  8. Pathfinders from the 504th participated in Normandy.
  9. The digitizing shows in the chute, the face, the bayonet and the rifle, among other places.
  10. Yeah, this is not an original WWII clicker. I'd like to see if it is stamped Acme on the front just for s and giggles. But yes, it's not a good one.
  11. Reproduction. It should have a thumb depression. If ground Dug the steel clicker would be rusted away. If I recall correctly the chrome ones had a factory made single hole. This one is no bueno!
  12. That window was actually designed and built by a guy from right here in Arizona. I've been there several times and met him here when I came back home.
