  3. Will update profile. Thanks for the heads up. http://yankeetraderrelics.com/
  4. New items added April 2018. Check us out. Thank you.
  5. I tried the forum resizer last night. Works great. Thanks for the additional internet resizer link. I'll give that a try later today.
  6. BOLO, The Administrator has pointed me to a resizing tool created by another member for the forum. Is this what you are using to create the larger photos? Here is the link. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/229816-custom-resize-tool-exclusively-for-the-usmf/ http://www.usmilitar...y-for-the-usmf/ Thanks again for sharing the larger photos.
  7. Thanks for the information regarding resizing. I resized my photos based on the 251K limit. I did this so I could show more than one photo of the helmet. What is the size of the picture of the helmet you posted? Great image.
  8. jkash23686: Unfortunately the forum limits the size of the photos. I wanted to get as many on within the limit. Send me your email address. Others have already done so. I will be happy to forward larger photos. I have also taken photos with a flash. My email address is mpfrat@aol.com. Maybe this will help you see the helmet camo pattern better. BOLO - thank you for the input.
  9. Thanks for all the comments on the captain bars. I think US advisor to an ARVN unit makes sense. We all seem to be headed down the Vietnam road regarding the pattern. Any other comments out there with respect to anything else?
  10. Larry, Thank you. My first reaction when I bought this helmet over a year ago was ARVN pattern. Maybe we are onto something. Thanks, Mark
  11. Amazing - EBAY still producers big spenders. I carried around a mint WWII Shotgun Pouch from show to show without any luck selling it. This included the SOS in Louisville KY. I was asking 275 bottom line. No takers. Put it on EBAY and got 580. I guess it depends on whos watching and how bad they want one. I was happy but I would be amazed if I could do that again.
  12. I forwarded you additional pictures and in larger size. I assume you received them. Let me know if you did not get them. Thank you.
  13. I acquired this helmet about a year ago and almost gave up on the pattern and any association with a unit. Recently I was told that it appears to be a Pacific Camo Pattern that was used by the 27th Infantry Division. The helmet is a front seam, fixed bail. The liner is Westinghouse and is missing its nape, sweatband and chinstrap. The camo pattern is what I am mainly looking for information on. The paint is a thick green over brush of the original sand cork finish with black stripes in irregular patterns applied. See pictures. I also can provide more closeups. My email is mpfrat@aol.com. Thank you.
