  1. Damn, mine was just a wild estimate, that is not bad at all, would be interesting to find out what the seller paid originally. I'm just happy I got my small piece of the cake.
  2. When I first saw this grouping, my jaw dropped. It was like a wet dream for me. I bid on most of the grouping, hoping to at the very least, get a uniform and both flags, but after a gigantic bidding war, I only ended up with his visor cap, officer's field manual, officer's guide, 2x lots of photos, a letter/booklet, Norwegian-English phrase book, and a carved aluminium box. I was rather saddened by the fact that the grouping was split up(But very understandable considering the amount made), that nobody wanted to get the small stuff(Which worked out nice for me ), and little interest to keep
  3. Very nice helmet! Does it have a liner or a laundry mark? I have a relative who was KIA with the 28th on the Siegfried line

  5. I've got a couple of uniforms with faded markings and names that have faded a bit over the years, is there any way to read these markings better? I tried with UV light, but it did not work so well on some of my items(I managed to tip over the lamp after a couple of minutes of usage, so I won't be able to try it again until I order a new one, silly me).
  6. I decided to go for it,the seller is a fellow collector from a Norwegian forum who I have dealt with before.The medal looks to be the exact same type Dave had in his collection before the ban: http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/174464-images-of-medals-of-honor-from-my-collection/ Once I get it, I will post some clear pictures.
  7. I'm thinking of adding this Medal of Honor to the collection, but I thought I'd ask for some opinions first. I am not doubting the originality of it, but I am far from an expert on them. Would this be the more modern version? Korea, Vietnam? PS: Before you ask, I am outside the US, so I can buy it legally.
  8. On the other side of the parking lot, the Norwegian army had a big display of their current weapons and vehicles, where kids could play with weapons, something I was not too fond of. It caused a bit of a split message, since there were WW2 vehicles right next to them, and people thought they were a part of the "play group", which it was not. But it was interesting:
