Help with grouping ID

Recommended Posts



I recently picked up this small group.  It consists of a ribbon bar-American Campaign, Good conduct, and Victory ribbon.  It also has US and Artillery collar tabs, with SS catches.  There were GHQ reserve, Antiaircraft, Meritorious Unit Citation, and Infantry Rep Training center Patches.  Also two PFC rank patches.  Is it possible to tell if this Veteran saw overseas duty, or was he stateside during the war?  

Thank you

From the patches and ribbon bar I'm guessing he was stateside throughout the war. WIth the AA patch  i would think he might be some sort of Coast Artillery group, but the Artillery collar disc, he probably was in some other unit. 


Nice little group, do you have a name to go with it? Stateside stuff is still interesting IMO.


I am an amateur collector of US military items of the 20th century.


Looking for items related to:

-The Aleutian Island Campaign of WW2, Alaskan Theater, Alaska Defense Command, and more specifically the Battle of Attu

-Items related to the 50th Combat Engineer Regiment/Battalion

-Items related to Wheelus Air Force Base Libya, particularly from 1957-1960

-WW2 items belonging to service members from Northern Virginia

-WW2 Uniforms (all branches and services)

-Cheap/Throwaway WW2 named uniforms

-Smaller WW2 Groupings

-7th Infantry Division Items

-WW2 Photos and Letters (all branches, theaters, services, etc)

Thank you for the help.  No I do not have a name, but the person I got them from, says they have his dog tags, and will give them to me when they find them...

I am keeping my fingers crossed..
