  1. awesome find! this is indeed something one doesn't see very often so I appreciate you sharing it with us.
  2. This was is my personal favorite from my collection. I bought this tunic awhile ago from someone on here and wanted to share the patch. The picture doesn't do it justice, but it's a 3-piece contruction with a velvet keystone and bullion border.
  3. More German made examples Front:
  4. Wow! Now that is one awesome bayonet. I'm a 28th ID collector so if you're ever thinking about selling it, please contact me!
  5. Thanks General Apathy...pointing out what the E.C.W. meant on the manufacture's tag was a big help!
  6. The grouping did not contain items that were from the occupation period in Japan and I'm pretty sure this isn't a tailored Japanese uniform. The tag is marked Phila Q. M. depot...I'm pretty sure we didn't make uniforms for the Japanese that would have been tailored by them later. On another note...if this was a tailored WWI trench coat...wouldn't the tag state it was an overcoat or something. I thought that the depots wrote the nomenclature of the item on the white tag (i.e. coat, mackinaw, OD or coat, wool serge 18 oz or overcoat, wool, OD). Since it doesn't state any nomenclature...its p
  7. This coat is cut in a civilian style and yet it is contracted by the government and made from OD wool. I think you're probably right about it being used by the CCC. Would anyone have the slightest clue of its value? I'm only knowledgeable on military uniforms...not CCC issued clothing.
  8. Hmmmm....interesting considering the Civilian Conservation Corp was quasi-military and uniformed by the government. I did a quick google image search of the CCC and may have found this coat but it's difficult to tell. I would appreciate your opinion on this photo and any other CCC images the definitely shows this example. Look at the guy towards the middle of the front row. His coat is buttoned and it appears to have the same number of buttons as mine and side pockets like mine.
  9. Hello, I recently got this coat at an auction that came as part of a WWII uniform lot. I have never seen anything quite like it. I thought that if might be in Stanton's Doughboy to GI reference book, but no luck. Does anyone have an idea what it might be. Thanks
  10. You have some really neat photos their. I especially like the photo of the two pre-WWI NGP guys. Can you make out the Company letter and Regiment number on their hat and collar pins? Is the picture on the far left of the top row one of the same guys just sitting. Can you post an enlarged copy of that one. Thanks

  12. You look at the photos and judge for yourself. They look black to me. Maybe I'm colorblind or just can't tell the difference (I routinely wear one black and one navy blue sock thinking they are the same until my Art teacher wife corrects me) but the buttons definitely look more black then brown.
  13. All the buttons have the same markings on the back which read: The Hilborn-Hamburger Inc. Viking N.Y. The buttons along the front measure 1 inch in diameter and the pocket buttons measure 5/8 inch diameter. Every button is domed, black on the front and bronze on the back.
