  1. Great group. Love the provenance. Is the first ribbon Chinese? Ebay is very particular about Japanese flags. The Japanese can sell them on eBay but not it the US. They got some heat from someone big enough to make it a rule.
  2. By the construction of the pieces I would say 1960 to 1990. I wonder if they are military.
  3. Very nice window into an American airman. I much rather save groups than split them up.
  4. He looks like he’s 14!! What a great picture to find.
  5. I was assuming he wore it in the POW camp. Are you saying that his A2 was sent back to the US or the other men held on to it for him? How does a POW get reunited with his A2 ? Didn't they reissue this type of thing? Especially since they were in high demand by many who wanted one, by hook or by crook, I might add.
  6. I have never seen an A2 from a POW before. Its got to be rare.
  7. It’s Chuch Yeagers knife that came out of his lunch pail, part of grouping of old half eaten moldy sandwiches and an empty jar of Skippy.
  8. They clearly don’t know or regularly sell Militaria. It’s like going to an antique store or flea market where Militaria is constantly miss ID’d and overpriced. These same sellers also make mistakes in the opposite direction and that’s when you can get something for nothing
  9. The reason I ask is because very often an auctioneer will divide groups up and sell them in different lots. Could this man’s medals, ribbons or jungle jackets have been sold in another lot. For example was there a medal lot? Regardless this is a rare grouping.
  10. Have never seen one of these before. Thank you guys for this information.
  11. Anyone know what this flag represents? No manufacturing name. Brass grommets and all machine sewn not printed. Looks like a Defiance made 1960s repro. There are 80 vintage reproductions of Revolutionary and Civil War flags and only a hand full have a manufacturing tag or stamp. Any help is appreciated.
  12. Fantastic group. That clothing lot had many hidden gems and sold for a good price. Has any of the duck hunting camo been modified?
  13. As patches suggested look in the sleeve, more often than not you can find a tag.
  14. Looks like something we made in camp but with different symbols. I wonder if it hung from a faux leather necklace? Im sure it is something that was sold to the Iraqi people so they could show loyalty and look real cool all at the same time.
  15. First time I’ve seen this! Very interesting artistry by the makers of these 2 wings. The one that started this post has a faux filigree look that reminds me of my time in India...there I was.... The banana detail is outstanding! Those guys took this banana deal seriously.
  16. Very nice group. Is any of the clothing named to him?
