  1. Richard W. Chipman, K/3/3, I started searching and didnt realize how far back I went, I was wondering about that one of any other groupings you had maybe FS?

    If you dont mind emailing me dbyounkin16@yahoo.com? Im a new member so Im only allowed to reply a couple times per day.

  2. Thanks for all the feedback, everyone! I did notice the shoddy sewing but was leaning towards the, “it could’ve happened” train of thought. I dont think this is an estateman94 or iliketoshop83 creation as suggested earlier. I paid less than the sum of parts on it so either way I’m not too upset if it’s good or crapola. Thanks again for the comments! Haydn
  3. Beautiful golden lion, I just took one of mine out for pictures today Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hi all, I picked this one up at last years MAAM WWII Weekend in Reading PA. I was hoping to be able to ID it based on the laundry tags named “RAINEY” but haven’t nailed it down 100%. I’m hoping I can lean on some forum members who might be able to solve it for me. Maybe some context clues that the uniform is giving us which I’m not picking up on. I found a distinguished COL LeRoy A Rainey who is well documented but I don’t want to automatically assume it is him. I believe the buttons are Italian made which leads me to think someone who not only served in the ETO but the MTO
  5. Very nice, if I recall, this was on eBay. I know myself and a few others were trying to secure this lot before the listing disappeared. Congrats on a great grouping and being able to keep it all together!
  6. Figured I’d share my UNIS marked canteen collection. All but two are identified, still trying to decipher the smudged name on the one and the other has no trace of a name I can see.
  7. Definitely looks like it! It would make sense due to the 2nd’s occupation duty in Japan. Here is your guy, Owen. Obit: http://www.tributes.com/obituary/show/Robert-H-Vogel-105969785 -Haydn
  8. PhM3c G.B. Lamar, from Hawkinsville, GA and a veteran of Kwajalein, was tragically killed in action today, 76 years ago on D-Day on the beaches of Saipan. C Co, 4th Med Bn, was attached to the 23rd Marines during the battle and their task was not an easy one - the 4th MARDIV’s primary objective was the main airfield. This uniform once belonged to him and was reissued to one of his corpsman comrades who never inked his name in the uniform, hence the different rank. The ghosting of his rate is still visible to this date. Today, I remember PhM3c Lamar, and all of his brave
  9. Here is the red ink stamped coat in my collection for future reference.
  10. Hey I see one of my old uniforms in those pics! Blue ink is fine. The laundry markers/ink were typically blue/purple. I wouldn’t base my decision to purchase on the color of the ink. I’ve seen black,blue/purple, and even red. Also, just because the markings are very bright or dark, does not always equate to being fake. I also don’t see any issues with the Wyatt uniform. Most of my collection is a mixed bag between handwritten, stamped, or typed. I’ve actually seen a decent number of blue inked uniforms.
  11. I can also do better on the price, especially off eBay. It’s a really nice little group! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi, I’m the seller. I bought it from the picker who bought it from the family at the estate sale. It came out of the Pacific Northwest, I believe Oregon. I bought for my personal collection but space has become more of a commodity than anything and I really need to focus more on my niches. Any questions or concerns or more pictures needed, let me know! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Well, that is a bit obvious, no? What's the point of this sub-forum then? Anyways, for the sake of information I sold this for $400 on eBay.
  14. Beautiful uniform! I have a wool flannel and khaki under shirt to a 106th/5th combat medic, Ill have to dig up my stuff and see if its the same guy!
  15. I agree! If I bought it, I would print out that email and keep it with the uniform. Good man for figuring out the truth and being so transparent.
