  7. Albert, I thank you for your reply. I intend to contact the West Virginia Archives and History Center of my find and I'll keep you all posted with my developments. Thank you again for your response. Regards, Joel
  8. Gents, My apologies in not being around for a while. I've been very busy with handling work related details and things about our house. So with the need for a much deserved break, my Wife and I decided to take a little time off and go for a Sunday drive over to Vermont. Once there, I happened upon a Flea Market and decided to purchase this item. It is a French Issued Death Certificate for a US Doughboy by the name of, Roy E. Parrish. I've seen all types of Death Certificates in my day however, never had the chance to purchase one for a decent price. I brought the item home and decided upon seeing if there was any information on the said name. The interesting part of this whole story is that I intended to find little information on the soldier except for a draft registration card or the like. The one interesting facet to this story is that there was a small picture of this Gentleman in the lower right corner of the frame and I noticed there there is quite a story behind this Soldier once I tied in a face with the name... Here is the link I found.. http://www.wvculture.org/history/wvmemory/vets/parrishroy/parrishroy01.html One in the same? I think so... What is a document originating in West Virginia doing up here in the hills of Vermont? The mystery continues... The floor is yours Gents..
  9. Noor, Excellent job in displaying your medals and pictures.. Very Well Done! Regards, Joel
  10. Micha, What a beautiful ensemble. You are indeed a lucky man for obtaining this one! Friedlander is one of my favorite manufacturers. Regards, Joel
  11. Gents, I know this is the statement that Oliver Hazzard Perry told the land forces after the battle. However, I have never seen a medal commemorating it. Can anyone shed some light on this piece. I thank you in advance to any help you can provide me. After further review, this looks as though it may be one of the Centennial medals popular in the day. Regards, Joel
  12. Stunning! I love the original Cardboard box too! Regards, Joel
  13. Gentlemen, I certainly appreciate your continued conversation and am looking forward with anticipation to your findings! Regards, Joel
  14. Gents, Thanks for your continued interest. Would more pictures help out with your assessment? Regards, Joel
  15. Gentlemen, What baffles my co-worker is there isn't a body of water large enough to have boats with such cannons in the Southwestern part of NH... Maybe, it was hauled back to our area after a Naval conflict in another region? Interesting find for him that's for sure. Thank you again for your interest! Regards, Joel
  16. Gents, Here are the stats... Diameter: 6 inches Weight: 8.5 lbs. What do you think?
  17. Gents, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Been away for most of the day with work and sorts. I have discussed the possibilities of your findings with my co-worker and he states that as far as he can trace his Family's property, it has never been an artillery training area. The cannon ball was found under a cedar tree when his Dad was performing some excavation work. That is the only none history as to it coming into his possession. As far as weight and diameter, he'll have those figures for me on Monday. Thank you again Guys and I look forward to posting my findings and hearing your additional thoughts! Regards, Joel
  18. Here is another picture showing the plug.
