  1. Much thanks for a real photo of one Bill, what a beauty! The last two digit I saw for sale was almost $8k. Thanks for the responses folks, I appreciate it very much.
  2. Hi Igor, no I did not bid, I merely watched the auction. Somebody is going to be mad about their $1,600+ purchase
  3. Sorry for an old bump, but the engraving on these is standard Post -WW2 US GI engraving. Likely done at the factory.
  4. The SW Asia US Service medal is at least of the era of the Gulf War due to the case and the strike. The Other US Medal is a US Army Achievement Medal and it appears to be a recent issue piece. These medals are both very common and won't bring much.
  5. Beautiful collection Johan, it is nice to see so many Liberty Crosses on display! I am curious as to who manufactured your Grand Cross. Thanks!
  6. Hello all, I watched this auction out of curiosity to see what something this nice would bring, now I am not an expert by any means regarding originality, but I was curious of what some more learned folks thought. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Order-USSR-Red-Star-Goznak-1930-year/282957725369?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 Thanks!
  7. Hmm, that is an interesting lead. By all means, please do.
  8. What a story and grouping, history being preserved is well worth sharing. PS - Nice looking displays behind the uniform too!
  9. Hello all, my local militaria dealer had this one show up in a small bring back grouping, please let me know if any of you have seen this one. I'm speculating it might be Vichy based on the cross, but I am not an expert on French medals. Thanks!
  10. Now that is interesting, I know where I can buy an HJ Grip Diamond, but I am unsure if the pins on the back of the badge would match up with the configuration on this grip. I'll take some photos and let you know!
  11. Hi Joel, the 16 could be for the 16th Regiment as they did fight in the Indian Wars (and they're one of the few continuous Federal Units in US Army history), but it's hard to say for sure without a state mark if it could be a Militia unit too. I have a Trapdoor that was issued to a Nebraska Cavalry unit which was Federalized in the late 1880's.
  12. I'm not a fan of the maker mark, it has the wrong font of known war time S&L Crosses. I am no expert regarding the crosses themselves (I'm much better with badges) , but maker marks are a lot easier to fake. I'd be curious what Jim says. Of note, it does appear that the core has been repainted as well.
  13. Looks like a decent Transitional Eickhorn SA Dagger, no Gruppe mark definitely fits the era of production for this dagger too. Did you wind up buying this one?
