    Default 82nd 504 DUI and other items

    Was at a junk sale and picked up a couple things . All the US items were a dollar a item. The german tinnie was $ 25. So when I got home and started to look up the DUI's I was very happy to find out the one with the sword and ( Strike Hold )was for the 504th from the 82nd. Gary

    I have read lately that the us troops didn't care much for the red cross. The red cross made them pay for coffee , donuts ,and meals. Gary

    Hi Gary, that's a great DUI! I love the 504th ever since reading Those Devils in Baggy Pants by Ross Carter. Let me know if you want to double your money on that one. That whole lot is a treasure. I'm starting to like the "smalls" as picker Frank puts it, more and more. That Corps of Engineer DUI is a beauty too. Keep hitting those "junk" sales. rick

    Thanks Rick glad you like it . I was very surprised when I found out it was the 504th. Looking these items up is half the fun when you get home. I read a little about the 504th and how the German officer called them devils in baggy pants. Gary

    Nice little tinnie - I also like the rank insignias and the Presidential Unit Citation.

    Small items can be interesting and fun to collect and often, not very costly.
    For $1 each, you can't go wrong.........!
    Regards,
