  1. Rt hand Ribbon top row is US. I have one as well. I had a reference for it not too long ago. It is relevant to derive in 1920s. More later if I find my reference.
  2. Hello, I am kindly looking for a translation of the inscription on a sword. Thank you.
  3. I take full responsibility! (thumbs up)
  4. I found this site - there were 120 or so DFS's awarded during WW2 to USMC aviators. This narrows it down some. Thanks again for the post I found this - I narrowed down the squadrons by eliminating the major campaigns like "Wake and Midway" and VMF-121 has 3 DFS recipients: http://www.ntxe-news.com/cgi-bin/artman/exec/view.cgi?archive=23&num=38286&printer=1 Robert M. Baker - did find anything that he stayed in the service Kenneth M. Ford - got out and got marries after the war William B. Freeman - makes sense but his obit has a typo retire date '54 should read '64. And there is a V-5 pin that came with the lot. Opinions?
  5. Wow- that provides a tremendous perspective. There are only a few WW2 squadrons as well. Any good sites with rosters? He retired on the east coast so that means pax river or cherry point. Thank you!
  6. A couple of local guys say to clean it up. Interresting to me to read the opinions. There is a jewelry cleaner that you can dip this is and it takes all the grime off. Then it will sparkle. In any case the jury is out. I don't know what I will do having several sets I like them clean and shiney.
  7. Hello, Is this jewelry or a pocket badge? Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello! Only negative in this group is it is not named. Enjoy! -George
  9. The army shield is bullion and looks ok was it embroidered on the hat or a separate piece of cloth? Looks to be 1902 pattern dress cover for a regular officer.
  10. Hi Peter, Good points. This is an officers EGA 10kt gold and sterling. Meant to be seen the black is tarnish. I am eager to see what others have to say. I am happy either way. Zoom in on the America's it looks brass but that is gold. Thanks! George
  11. Hi all, I have this and the collar emblems nice HH pattern Probabily 1930's. Would you clean the tarnish? If so how? I do not want to use paste if it is advisable. Thanks in advance! George
  12. Hi all, Happy New year! This is pretty odd looking definitely British Made. Its on a 4 pocket enlisted mans jacket with 8th and 20th air corps patches. Thanks in advance! George
  13. This is a nice looking display. Is the destroyer the one that resistance forces disabled in the fjords? Cheers.. George
  14. I saw this today. I am confused as to how this ruling can be upheld. http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ex-marine-can-wear-medals-he-didn’t-earn-a-court-calls-it-free-speech/ar-CCvR7i?li=BBnbcA1
  15. Coro is a jewelry maker. Specifically costume jewelry.
  16. Hello all, I think this one is for a military school. Any ideas? Thank you! George
  17. Hello IG, Thank you. Safe to say they were put together hap hazzardly. I have a bunch only the three colors. Many thanks! George
  18. Hello, there isn't a hallmark on the broach or the medal. Thank you for the feedback. George
  19. Hello all, I haven't seen anything like this before. Any ideas as to when or what uniform or why? Obviously enlisted ranks. Would it be safe to assume the color matches the piping of overseas hats? Cheers! George
  20. Hello all, Looking to get opinions on this one. Its UV negative and nothing on the broach. My guess is late 40's through the 50's. Best... George
  21. Thank you! We don't see very many.
  22. Some new bars. Picked then up by the pound from a local shop.
