  1. Tolzer - Was this the IW Medal that came in the auction lot out of Maine with all the Spanish American War medals? Frank
  2. I may be the odd duck here, but the numbering on the medal doesn't look right. It's too small and too close together. That looks like the numbering Don Nixon in California was doing many years ago.
  3. Thanks again for the information. It is much appreciated. Frank
  4. Gentlemen: I recently acquired this worn cut edge black Airborne tab. It doesn't glow under a black light, but I'm not sure that it's WWII era. Could I please get some opinions from you patch guys? Thanks so much! Frank
  5. Pfrost: Thanks for the information. As for the pins being replaced, I think they are original. I've seen pictures of a few others by searching the Internet the last couple of days and the solder seems a little "blobby" on all of them. Frank
  6. rooster77 - I appreciate the comment. Thank you! Would it be possible for you to show me a picture or refer me to a post where there are electric welded post so I can see the difference? Frank
  7. Good afternoon: I was wondering if any of you wing experts could give me an indication on the manufacture date of this H&H Naval Aviator wing? It measures 2 3/4 inches, is clutchback, and is marked on the reverse. I tried to take good, close up pictures. I've been told that it was a late WWII era wing, but wanted to confirm what it really was. I sincerely appreciate your help! Frank
  8. Yes. I saw at least one at the SOS this year.
  9. Happy Saturday to everyone! I have a question. I bought a small collection of WWII-era patches a while back that included this example of the 1st Infantry Division. The more I look at it, the weave seems different. Can any of you patch experts tell me what I have? Is it foreign made or does it look funny because it was likely stitched to a shirt? Thanks! Frank
  10. Thanks guys! Due to the number of views and lack of responses, these must be somewhat unusual. I originally though that they might be something Wolf-Brown made, but that appears to be not the case.
  11. I recently picked up a small lot of lapel pins (and one rosette) from an local antique shop. They cover medals and decorations that were in place during WWII or earlier, but I've never seen anything like them. They are not marked and appear to be made of plastic. Each of the pins had the same type of clutch back on them. Has anyone seen these before? Who made them and when were they made? I'm guessing they date from the late 1940's or 1950's, but I don't know. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks. Frank
