  1. Great photo! Thanks for sharing it. Always cool to see them in wear.
  2. Wow 38 buttons per uniform is a lot! That is interesting , I better get back to that field. Thanks for sharing that.
  3. Good deal, thanks for the clarification.
  4. Thank you, it was good timing I guess. Could either of you tell me how the hash marks work? I have forgotten. I recall a bit about having to do with time in combat or service.
  5. Wanted to share this antique store find while traveling out West last Fall. Both patches are bullion type. It is dated 1942 on the label inside the pocket. Jacket has some moth damage but not too bad. I know the CBI patch is fairly common but I believe the Bullion Ledo Road is scarce.
  6. Thanks, always fun to find the old stuff.
  7. Glad to share it. It was found at an old Tavern site that is now a farm field, Upstate NY.
  8. I found this metal detecting recently. It is a flat button about the size of quarter. Wanted to share it here on the site. I think it is US 1st Regiment from the War of 1812 Era. Any thoughts if it's a scarce one?
  9. Thank you, I appreciate the help. I'm good on old fighting knives but patches are not my specialty. Rocco
  10. Just found an old post on them from 2010 on this site, Thank You
  11. That was fast! Do you know the history or meaning? Thank you, Rocco
  12. Embroidered on black felt of an alligator eating two tanks. It measures 3 1/2" by 2 " inches. I've had it about 15 years and acquired it with some old uniform stuff. Any thoughts ? Sorry about the rotation.
  13. I've neve seen the green helmet, but in case your interested here is a list of the symbols.
  14. Great topic with very interesting old photos!
