  2. I assume its a gun safe, try a humidifier. To keep moisture out. I have no problems. But I don't store medal boxes. There about $20. bucks. also in the car business Febreze hides almost anything.

  6. I figured this was a lost battle, but then thought what the heck maybe some collector out there has dads tags, what I know is my grandmother passed away in 1975. I don't think there were many dog tag collectors out there then. I know they were taken by a relative who had no interest other than selling these things, letters, Japanese souvenir's etc. What I'd like is the dog tags or letters. Maybe some where out there some one has them in a box. Id know them if I saw them. Richard Elsea NMN (no middle name) these would have been taken in Hampton, VA. in 1975. Thanks for reading my story...David

  10. The BSV looks like my old high school senior key, we wore around our necks on a chain back in the day. Not my School though. I guess you picked the pickers...LOL we all do at one time or another, although not Mike and Frank

  12. I have known Robert for many years, going back along way...I would run into him at shows many moons ago. He is a stand out guy. Nothing but good to say. Wealth of knowledge, absolutely agree with his gift for conversation, whether he is talking to a 13 year old or a 85 year old. He has the gift of conversation for sure. Thanks Robert! you have answered many questions for all no matter how trivial. An asset to the forum and the collecting community. Regards!

  14. I agree its too heavy to be a shako plate, its a brest plate IMO. typical construction, the cannon would also lean me towards Artillery. Still a beautiful plate.
  15. They are a tough breed, from a different generation. There is something about this generation they were tough as nails. God Rest His soul .RIP sailor and fair winds. Its alway tough to see another of the "Greatest Generation" pass. your in Gods hands.
