  1. I am trying to locate and acquire Otto Gullion’s medal grouping in order to return it back to the last year they were together before Otto’s passing in the 1960’s from a railroad accident. I have his Colt 45 in my collection, and for sometime I knew that Bob Gill had his medal grouping. However today I was informed by a forum member that is helping to manage Bob’s estate that he sold them a few years ago. Any help in locating this grouping would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time and consideration. Stay well!
  2. Thanks for the replies and ideas. I spent a few hours going the Google route "pipe with wind guard" like you suggested and it produced a ton of items. But WWI KB&B specific seems to be the very hard part to track down. Got to love the "HUNT" part of collecting! Thanks again.
  3. All - I am looking to complete this counter display. It is missing the correct tobacco pipe that I believe had a cover. I can not find anything on the web as to what type of pipe would complete the piece. You can see I have a corn cobb as a place holder for now. Any help in completing the display would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Perfect fit. Thank you both for the insight. Its appreciated very much. Have a good weekend.

    my wife

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family's loss. She sounds like a great lady and everyone that met her was blessed to have her as a part of their life. Please remember she is in a much better place free from pain, and you will no doubt be together again. Stay well.

    1918 LF&C

    Thank you for the reply. I thought the same thing as soon as it arrived. It's on it's way back to the auction house.
  11. http://www.rare-posters.com/714.html http://www.nancysteinbockposters.com/ IMHO it's a reproduction. I have bought WWI posters from the above two well known dealers and the first web link shows a larger sized version for sale at $695. If you have any doubts I am sure Nancy Steinbock would give you her honest feedback. Just contact her through her website. Good luck!

    1918 LF&C

    Thanks Pavel for the feedback and web link. I am attaching 2 more pictures showing the front and back of the handle. And yes the lettering (LF&C 1918) is that light under the U.S. 1918, and 27th Div YRPES Com 107th Reg is also very faint. I was hoping it was the real deal as the descriptions denotes a O'Ryan Roughneck veteran carried the weapon. However I think that is just a pipe dream. Once again your feedback and reply is greatly appreciated, KT

    1918 LF&C

    Just acquired this by way of an online auction. Of course it was advertised as original, and to date I have not been dissapointed with my online purchases. However I am quite certain I got burned on this one. The auction description was - This lot features a WWI brass knuckle trench knife. Made by Landers, Frary, & Clark, this knife has the brass knuckle grip and scabbard. The knife is marked "U.S. 1918/LF&C 1918" on one side and "27th Div YPRES/COM107th Reg" on the other side. The scabbard is marked "LF&C". The knife and scabbard are in very good condition. The knife measures 11.5" and the blade is 6" long. When the item arrived today I noticed LF&C 1918 under the U.S. 1918 was poorly punched, and the scabbard was something I had never seen with a LF&C knife, In addition on the opposite side where the 27th Div YRES/COM 107th Reg is punched looks like the same method was used to mark LF&C 1918. The pommel and blade look correct, but they have been darkened with some sort of black paint??? I then removed the pommel and found a white resin inside the handle keeping me from removing the blade to inspect it futher. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. On a positive note the auction house is currently handling the situation very well. KT
  15. Original. I have a pair of 323 that match these. Good hunting!
