  1. Do you still have Douglas L. Winter’s A2?  And would you be willing to sell it. Winter was my grandfather’s CO during WWII and he named my father after him.  “Douglas L”.  Would love to be able to give him this piece of his history. 

  2. Thanks. Yeah, hard to tell but the liner had a laundry mark so definitely some research potential.
  3. Having difficulty identifying this one. Anyone have any ideas as to what it signifies? Thanks, Ron
  4. I did read the full thread. IMO, which I'm also entitled to, paint and patina are what is important. I used your quote but am not necessarily picking on you. When the helmet I posted came to light, there were collectors here who discounted it based solely on not having chinstraps.
  5. Every helmet should be evaluated past just not having chinstraps, IMO. To immediately move on from or discount the originality of it based on chinstraps present, is narrow minded. This helmet has no chinstraps and had I blown it off, I would have made a significant mistake. But, to each his own.
  6. Interesting poster I just picked up. It's huge and actually pretty thick stock. It's not attached to the cardboard underneath. Any suggestions on framing it other than just biting the bullet?
  7. This is the entire grouping, I just didn't have the space to display it all.
  8. Here is a picture of one of the red lights on the WWII submarine USS Cod, currently a museum in Cleveland. Same serial number.
  9. Thanks for all the comments. I received the grouping from a patient of mine who is the son of this sub veteran. He, the son, also served in the Navy in the late 60's in Pearl and San Diego . One of his details involved salvaging items off the USS Archerfish before it was used as a target and sunk in 1968. The Archerfish received 7 battle stars and the PUC for it's service in WWII. He was allowed to keep two of these red lights off that submarine. I do still have the second red globe and would part with it if anyone is interested in it. Pic of the USS Acherfish
