  1. I recently bought a WW2 USMC helmet with a Hawley liner. Well my curiosity got the best of me and I wanted to see the steel lid so I removed the Hawley liner, satisfied my curiosity, and the tried to put it back together. The problem is I can not get the Liner to sit fully in the helmet like it was. Any suggestions/solutions
  2. Word to the wise, some unscrupulous sellers are removing those WOSK tags and placing them on other patches. When you see a number that looks similar to this "7MR59" those were inventory control numbers for WOSK. Every type of patch had their own number. If you are in doubt ask someone who has a fair collection of the Wosk patches to verify the number. I bought a large share from Donna Wosk and I'm fairly certain the numbers are correct because she would sell them cheaper if they didn't have tags

  4. If any of you folks are into the 1/35th scale resin figures I just posted a handful on the "For Sale" forum. Definitely for the more advanced guys with good eyes and steady hands!
  5. The one on his rack is the "TIFFANY CROSS Medal of Honor" with an award eligibility date of 1917- 1942. it wasn't very popular and only 28 were ever awarded
  6. eBay item number 200970971440, found >>>>http://www.ebay.com/itm/200970971440?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sacat%3D0%26_okw%3D%26_oexkw%3D%26_adv%3D1%26_udlo%3D%26_udhi%3D%26_ftrt%3D901%26_ftrv%3D1%26_sabdlo%3D%26_sabdhi%3D%26_samilow%3D%26_samihi%3D%26_sadis%3D200%26_fpos%3D%26_fsct%3D%26LH_SALE_CURRENCY%3D0%26_sop%3D12%26_dmd%3D1%26_ipg%3D50%26_nkw%3D200970971440%26_rdc%3D1 Photo here>>>> or this one, eBay item number http://www.ebay.com/itm/200970970390?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sacat%3D0%26_okw%3D%26_oexkw%3D%26_a
  7. I agree with Alec. I believe it is a "put together" creation
  8. So then based on the loops, which EGA is correct for which loop?
  9. I kind of made my decision based on Gil Sanow's post here http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/3874-1903-1910-us-army-em-khaki-coats/ plus he indicated that the post type collar discs didn't appear until 1910. Would it make a difference if it is the tropical kahki type vs. wool?
  10. Is anyone aware if the 1906/1907 Army tunic, the one with a stand and fall collar, had grommet holes sewn in for emblems/disks? It seems that the majority I have seen had pin on type emblems/insignia.
  11. Anyone have a posting or listing of the specifications and or pattern information for M1885 USMC white cotton duck pants that saw USMC use in the SAW? Pictures? Any info? Were they exactly the same as the M1884 brown duck pants only in white?
  12. The water hasn't harmed anything I have done it on. I figured it out by accident but it is kind of amazing how it works. This is actually the first item I used it on where it didn't show up dark enough to take a photo of. I'm kind of bummed about it not being a USMC item. I don't do the Army collecting so I guess it will go in the "For Sale" section.
  13. well I wasn't able to get a picture of the Mills logo but after cleaning up the female snaps I am able to see a manufacturer stamp which appears to be "C-F Co. U.S.F." U.S.F.???
