  1. This is a very interesting thread. Mr. Mosher, thanks for a good description. I also understand that these collar tabs had matching cuff litzen, yes? How about 'generic-non colored' officer collar tabs (images attached), when were they worn, combat? I have a set on a tunic (attached), and there is no cuff litzen, the cuffs on the tunic are red piped French style with nothing on them.
  2. The bottom right Admirals shoulder board is a fake. It is a Soviet era Generals/Admirals board which had the star removed and a modern day embroidery executed of an Imperial Admirals eagle, 100% fake. Just compare the width and quality of the shoulder board field’s embroidery and constitution to the original overcoat Major Generals board which is to the left of it, night and day difference.
  3. Dear Fellow Forum Memebers, Here is a wondeful grouping which surfaced not long ago from an antiquer who purchases material from estates in Great Britain. These are obviously effects of a former Colonel of the White Russian Army who ended up living and passing away in the UK. The shoulder boards appear to be crudely made (very common for White Russian Army) and are for the rank of Colonel. There is also a small metal pin-back jetton which is a miniature of the shoulder boards and is engraved on the back with the Colonel's initiatls and a date: 15th of May 1919. I was wondering which regiment or unit are these boards attributed to. Thanks to everyone in advance for their kind help. i will post an image of the entire grouping and then the shoulder boards. Cheers, Dave.
  4. Dear Fellow Collectors, I am lookimg for feedback on the wings depicted in the attached images. Although probably not from the Civil War period, they are nevertheless from the Blue Squadron period. I have always seen the back attachement in the form of a nut. These however have some sort of an attachement device which is like a stud which is inside and well afixed. The props with the eagle are tightly attached and do not come loose in any way. They can also be comfortably turned a bit from side to side, but again, they are firmly attched to the body and absolutrly no sign of tampering, since I heard that some "crafty" people try to attach the eagle of St.John to the post-1946 wings to make them appear to be pre-1946. I solicit all comments and knoweledge. (the images have a bit of a glare, the wings are not as shiny as they appear in the photos) Thanks to Everyone in advance! Dave.
