Raider group on IMA

Recommended Posts

They could have sold that large grouping easily a dozen times at that price. Thanks for posting it to be seen.

They had a bunch of really great items drop on their website today, they also had a China marine group and some great painted ww1 helmets I am disapointed I missed. Its kind of luck of the draw with them.

I should have kept looking at their site. A WWI cased DSC for $795, A Pacific pilot cased NC for $695, A China Marine GCM with Soochow Creek with photo album and docs for $2295. Normally there pricing is in outer space. Not this time.

I had seen it first thing this A.M. I clicked on the Raider grouping first but it was sold. I clicked on a few more nice items and they where still available to add to cart.. I just purchased a P42 jacket so I was not in a position to purchase anything! Nice stuff though and yes the prices where very good..

The dress blues with the paramarine patch is a bit iffy as the patch seems off kilter somewhat. It is not named, so I'm a bit skeptical.


Always buying USMC named uniforms and unit marked items.

Not that the new buyer will check this posting out but If anyone got the William Maier NC please PM me. I have his engraved DFC and would like to get the group back together.

Collecting Marine Raider Groups

On the battlefield, Pfc Edward Ahrens, an Able Company BAR man, lay dying, soaked in his own blood.

 

As his company commander, Lew Walt cradled him in his arms, he surveyed the scene around them. Nearby lay a Japanese officer, a sergeant, and thirteen enlisted men, all dead. Ahrens had been shot twice in the chest and bayoneted three times. He whispered to Walt, "Captain, they tried to come over me last night, but I don't think they made it." Choking back tears, Walt replied softly, "They didn't, Eddy. They didn't."
