  1. Awesome tunics Chris! Any names or history? Does the blue and white tress indicate Bavaria on the collar? I had thought that was an inidcation of guards or calavary.
  2. ROFL!!! That guy cracks me up. He wouldnt know a real PLM if it bit him in the a$$! Always laugh when he tries to authenticate something. I know it is not supposed to be comedy but it sure is funny. Only Gottlieb was worse.
  3. Nah, these things are all scripted way before hand. I've heard some of the deals don't really go through, they are just for show. People will audition a piece to get on the show, then the studio builds a scene for them. Fun to watch, but real it sure isn't :-) Who was the expert? Not that museum director with the bad hat?
  4. Wonderful post!! A named busby and Chapska. What finds! Can we see some more photos of both pieces?
  5. Nice Chris! The condition looks spectacular - any history on them?
  6. Awesome display Chris. I'm always surprised the rings survived and were not lost or sold. Really well displayed.
  7. Thank you guys. I appreciate your info and have passed it on. Glad he didn't get stung.
  8. Hey all! I was asked by a good friend my opinion of these badges. Unfortunately I am clueless when it comes to WW1 flight badges originality. I know they were officially reproduced from the 20's to the 40's; and then later as forgeries. I know many of you know these badges really well, so I was hopeing to pass on some opinions. Thanks!!
  9. Was this a royalty merit award? What were the criteria for its award? I've never seen this one before. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Did officer's routinely have numbered ovals? I thought that was more an exception rather than rule. I'll post a few that I have photos of tonight.
  11. How you seen Tony's Uniform on Kaiser's Bunker? I don't want to post the photo as I don't have permission, but here is the link http://www.kaisersbunker.com/flieger/
  12. French Foreign Legion Medal Group

    Wow! I wish I could add more but I am still amazed at the WW1 CdG citation. I bet Militaria magazine would jump to show off this group!
  13. Welcome back!! Let's see a profile of the car! All original or restored? I. Can't wait to see it.
  14. Aisle C, Row 4, Crate 12.

    Awesome set up Brian. The whole blog put a huge smile on my face. As a person diagnosed with ADHD, the organized non-organization aspect had me rolling. I'm like you, I have the most organized system in the world....I just wish I could remember what it. Is :-)
  15. And the same two tunics with the same rank, same bent right shoulder board on the mann tunic, same tress on the non NCO, NCO tunic
