  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!
  15. Thank you for the information, looks like a great book.
  16. I may have to pull the trigger on it. Does book two include all of book One's information?
  17. Rare is always nice. I haven't purchased his book yet, I would like to , very pricey.
  18. Thanks that is great information, Thank you, Rocco
  19. Have a guard marked Camillus , NY U.S.M.C. Mark 2 which has a plated blade. Blade, guard and pommel all appear to be plated. It has a pinned pommel. Near the tip some of the plating has worn away. Anyone know if this is considered the UDT knife? Thank you, Rocco
  20. Interesting letter, thak you for sharing it! Rocco
  21. Thank you Doyler, that was an informative website, Rocco
  22. Good evening Lance, Thank You, very good thoughts, I think your right on. Would have liked to bought a case full of them back when they were first imported! I'm not in love with the chrome thing , I like to see them original. Price was right though so I grabbed it. Thanks again for your help, Rocco
  23. Thank you Lance , any idea about the "V" stamp? Also do you think is was chromed for any special reason or just somebody wanted to do it because they thought it looked good? Thank You, Rocco
