  1. I am thinking it is not a specific ribbon bar to this gentleman. The angle of the photo looks like the ribbons are too big compared to the ones in the photo. Some advice an advanced collector told me (not being a smart ass here just trying to help)--> "Buy the item, not the story."
  2. You can post in the Classified Adverts Page. BTW, if you have a nice SA Treffen Badge (Type II Stamped or Solid Back with Vertical Pin) I would be interested
  3. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

  4. Gents I have a very nice EM Pionier Waffenrock that has everything original to the tunic minus the Collar tabs. If you have a matching set or know where I can find them, please direct me to the source or let me know. I am looking for the standard issue ones. I have checked most sites over the last year and spoke with friends, but no one seems to be able to find them. Any help would be appreciated. If I posted this int he wrong section, I apologize in advance.
  5. $3-6k USD. You may lose some value off the high end because all of it needs to be restored, however As it is named, so it could add value off the mid-end
  6. Truely wonder. You are blessed to have all of that
  7. There were a series of APB's awarded mainly to the 24th WSS Kartsjager Division. I dont have my book in front of me, but the numbers were really low. 8x Gold (and special variations), and a couple thousand in Silver and Bronze. Most APB's that you find now are fakes. If you find an authentic one you are looking between $2500 USD and up. I will never trash another man's treasure, but just from the picture that I see, having a Gold CCC (very rare) is something that I question, especially with that patina (looks too new). You really need to look at the liner, cuff title, and other things. There is a specific stitch patter to the cuff titles, but a big indicator that doesn't take long to establish is hitting it with a black light. If the white glows it is a repro. Hope this helps brother.
  8. Thanks. Thank you. Thanks again for your reply, but check this link out. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_French_Foreign_Legion
  9. beautiful uniform. Is this something that you put together or is there a story behind it?
  10. Every has some great groups but I am always partial to the Badeners
  11. What document do you want and what for.
  12. Looks like like 3D US Army, WWI Era
  13. M-1 Carbine. I just don't know what manufacturer. Another interesting fact, is that the Brits and Aussies also used M-1 Carbines in Korea I believe. An of course I love this picture...
  14. This is true, however, Campaign and Service Medals will always have a small Bronze Service Star Device (ie: National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Iraq and Afghanistan Campaign Medals) no matter what service. As for Joint Awards, like the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Commendation Medal, etc, will always use a Oakleaf Cluter no matter what service. This is one of the nicest Vietnam Era Ribbons bars that I have seen. Only thing missing from it is on the last Ribbon (1960 Streamer). This is normally the case, however, this is definitely a clerical error. It would rate a Bronze Service Star, however, if you would build or aquire a ribbon bar with his exact awards, I would put a OLC as his records states.
