    Are these US patches?

    Thanks Megan. I just were able to find out the same info. Now, looks like airborne patch is missing top scroll. Ranch hand is also an interesting one https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Ranch_Hand http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/foru...ch-hand-patch/
  9. Hi all, Among with other items I received these and I am struggling to figure out what are they. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Timo
  10. Oh wow. Thank you for your quick reply. Someone must be valued that medallion and got the repair done, thats what I thought and why I picked it up. It was random find from antique junk box in Estonia few days back. Not my collecting interest but happy to learn something new, so I am pleased. There must be different variations out if it - an eagle is different size on mine then on the links above. Thanks again!
  11. Hi all, Found this rather weird piece of metal and just wondering what it is? Looks like some patriotic piece from the revolution period? I can see similar design medallion from 1917 (famous French Liberté, égalité, maternité - liberty, equality, fathernity). Any thoughts?
  12. Hi there, Could someone please help me with the start of the research of IGS 1895 named to " Assistant Surgeon E.De Roche Indian Staff Medical Department". I tried FMP and Ancestry but no joy to locate anything of him. Where/how it would be possible to find out his full Name??? Thanking you in advance!

    Imperial Russian medal, 4th class

    Thanks Eric. Yes, looks like the medals to boarder guard regiments are not so comkon. Also poor guy looks like lost his leg and medal for that..... a small price in this sence. I didn' realised that they used this kind of double ring suspension system? Now, whole collection that is up on emedals has same ring systems so I recon it's done by collection owner. I have few imperial Russian "kolodas" left so I used this one instead. Should I put the rings back?
