Very nice. I picked this one up today at an estate sale with some other 2nd Inf Div items.

 

Similar style with slightly different patterns.

 

Thanks, Al

 

Here is one of the 2nd Inf. Div. items I got at the same sale. Flag measures 3'x4' and is double sided. Beautiful enbroidered Indian head on each side, with the back side having a reversed image.

 

Thanks, Al

Three piece officer's buckle, Virginia Military Institute. Plate, wreath, and eagle are all separate pieces. (In need of polish. Wreath at one time was silver plate, traces remain.) Belt marked on back - worn by four different VMI First Captains (highest Cadet rank).

This one is a bit of an oddity. I just acquired it this week but the baffling part is the "Naval Base Boston" and that I can't find any examples of Boston-area bases being referred to as such.

This one may be a little different but I always thought it was cool. US Army Aviation Precision Demonstration Team, Silver Eagles. Was a team of OH-6A helicopters from 1972-1976. This lot was said to come from one of the pilots.

Slipping in a Coastie Buckle.....


USCGC CHILULA (WMEC-153) ex-Cherokee class USN Fleet Tug in USN service 1945 to 1956 as ATF-153, in USCG service 1956 to 1991. Redesignated as a Medium Endurance Cutter (WMEC-153) in 1966


It's always difficult to get a good photo of these Zippo buckles due to the high chrome finish.
