  1. I was really really surprised to discover this photo in that old box of photos and clippings. I almost threw it all away as a dumb purchase. No one I know has ever seen anything like it. Thank you for the very interesting context information.
  2. I shared this photo years ago. Today I enhanced it with Luminar 4 and this is the way it looks now. It was in a box of old photos I bought at the Dry Bridge Flea Market. I didn't expect to find anything good but I came across this. Enjoy taking a good close look. It's very fragile but now it's saved forever. I think the staff fourth from the right may be aa guidon but that's only a guess.
  3. I haven't been active here in a long time. Mostly, life got in the way. But I just returned from Tbilisi again and I have a few new things I want to share, a couple of which may not have been seen on this forum before. I see that a lot of things have changed here in the last several years. First up is this badge commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Georgia State Militia, so 1931 I suppose. I can't find it in any of my references. Maybe someone here can help. About 15,000 in the militia at this time and (I'm told) only about 200 of these issued. Numbers from a Georgian histori
  4. Any new thoughts on the little Red Cross badge?
  5. You’re quite welcome. I’ll try to get some others posted here.
  6. Nick Here's one that you might like, especially if you collect Osoaviakhim.
  7. Icebreaker? Saphire? I have several nice cigarette cases. Do you collect them? This is a particularly handsome example.
  8. I'm away from home but I have a good one. If this topic is still open next weekend I'll post it for comparison. I'm skeptical about this one but no one else has responded.
  9. This past winter. He's a pretty good friend. We made a trade that I told him was way too much in my favor. He told me he wanted me to have this framed painting so there you are. He is pretty famous and a number of people collect him so it's not like he has any trouble placing his paintings. This one has a prominent place in our home. So does the Guadalcanal painting. He has done a LOT of Civil War and Old West paintings. He's been featured on the cover of Old West and Civil War magazines several times. Don has a cabinet of prints that he no longer bothers with. Three are hanging
  10. Painting by Don Prechtel. From my collection.
  11. Very realistic. Great picture!
  12. Thank you for sharing these. Your work is unforgettable.
  13. Don is wonderfully talented and a fine historian. His passions are reflected in his art.
  14. I invite your attention to the painting Marine On Guadalcanal just posted in the Military Art forum.
  15. Marine on Guadalcanal - by Don Prechtel Oil on Canvas Original Uniform on loan from a WW2 Marine veteran From My Collection
  16. <<if a Russian buyer thinks he has paid too much for an item it also mysteriously becomes fake>> I wish that hadn't happened to me. But it did.
  17. It has been 6-1/2 years without a response to my question: Can anyone tell with any certainty whether or not this (posts 10 and 11) is an authentic example? Help a brother out here. Chuck
  18. Erors? You made erors? Give me substance over style every time. Well done.
