  1. This was sold at Morphy auction November 2018, part of the Bentley collection. It was cataloged (by me) as a fake - which is is. The collection had hundreds, yes hundreds, of hats, helmets, binoculars and briefcases with spurious names added, Eisenhower, Bradly, Patton - lots of them, CMOH winners etc. He bought this junk over a number of years and was told by many knowledgeable dealers and collectors that the material had problems. Here is a link to the listing: https://auctions.morphyauctions.com/INDIAN_WARS_PERIOD_NON_REGULATION_OFFICER_S_DRESS_-LOT452938.aspx
  2. Nice group of original WWII German Kriegsmarine rates.
  3. It is a Pre WWII German fire helmet, if you do a google search for "Imperial German Fire Helmet" you will find many similar examples.

No, while the buttons are certainly Civil War, the tunic is basically a Model 1872 artillery dress tunic with some differences, such as the gold tape on the front, 8 buttons as opposed to 9 buttons on a regulation Federal tunic and white cord trim around the collar.

  9. It is the Korean Army 20th Mechanized Infantry patch.
  10. Here is the Morphy listing: The following garrison caps have had names added to the sweatbands, while the caps are original we are of the opinion that the names have been added post period. (A) Enlisted Air Force cap with the name "Col. P.W. Tibbets" embossed on the sweatband. ( Officer's cap named "I.D. White" on the sweatband, left side with major general's insignia. © Officer's cap with "L.T. Gerow" embossed on the sweatband, left side with General's star pinned to it.

  11. This submarine flag was sold on eBay on Jan 1 with this title "Scarce WW 2 US Navy Submarine Victory Battle Flag, (SS-321) USS Besugo" for 485.00 with 25 bids.

I previewed the auction, the colors were applied using magic markers and the threads glowed.
