  1. Chris, Indeed it does! Good to see you my friend and I hope all is well?
  2. Gents, This thread deserves to be revived for this topic has recently surfaced on another forum and I had no clue as to the US Government sending these women on Pilgrimages to Europe to see the graves of their loved ones. What got me interested is that I recently bought a small lot of military insignia and other items. Amongst the items was a, Pilgrimage of Mothers and Widows Identification medal. Though the ribbon and name tag are missing there still is a serial number on the reverse of the medal and I hope to find the database to look up the original recipient. Thank you so much for your interest and I'm sorry it has been a long time since I have posted in here. I look forward to seeing old friends and fellow collectors! Regards, Joel
  3. Still no response from The West Virginia History Dept.
  4. What an incredible collection! Very nice!
  5. What a fantastic cross! Love the detail of the core. Regards, Joel
  6. Thank you Stormrider. Definitely a first of its kind in my collection. Thank you again. Regards, Joel
  7. Gentlemen, fantastic examples! Thank you for sharing. Though I don't currently own an EK1 Spange, it is good to know that I have these to compare if I stumble across one. Regards, Joel
  8. One last question... Is there any significance with the stamps?
  9. Stormrider, Thank you so much for your insight. This is the first piece of its kind in my collection. I'm more in tune with Imperial German collecting but will welcome all other historical artifacts. Thank you again! Regards, Joel
  10. Peter, I have not pulled the bullets from their cases. Most likely, your explaination is most plausible.
  11. Gentlemen, I recently ventured a little bit out of my collecting interests to obtain this piece. It is a Model 1874 Ammo Pouch for the McKeever 45-70 round. These ammo pouches were issued most likely for the Indian Wars. (A rather dark period in American History) This item has a Watervliet Arsenal mark as well as being stamped with a "16" and letter "D" on the enclosure flap. I'm thinking this was issued to the 16th Infantry Co. D? For those in the know, please feel free to chime in. What is interesting though the primers have been fired, all of the ammunition is period and has power in them. (Scratching head) Thank you so much for any additional information you can provide. Regards, Joel
  12. Gentlemen, Thank you so much! I agree the cypher does look as though it is for Ernst Ludwig! The mystery is solved, I believe?
  13. Farkas, I thank you for your help. Interesting piece none the less, and the mystery continues.
  14. I see why these can become addictive. Very nice collection of interesting items.
  15. Peter, I agree! It will definitely will adorn one of my shelves. Thank you again. Kind Regards, Joel
  16. Peter, I thank you so much for the information you provided. Though there are no marker's marks, I'm in agreement that the craftsmanship is exceptional. Here is another picture from a different angle. Thank you again! Regards, Joel
  17. Gents, It has indeed been a while and I hope is well with everyone. I happened upon this item and most likely a family time and not military, However was curious if anyone could shed some light on this piece? Thank you so much and seeing that it is most likely Scottish, I wanted to give it a whirl. Kind Regards, Joel
  18. Gents, I'm way behind the times. I have to go on the hunt to obtain some more additions. I've been on the sidelines lately and certainly appreciate all of your contributions. Regards, Joel
