I thought I would share some of my recent finds. All picked up from various places; EBay, local shops, family.
First up is a nice cased, slot brooch PH. Surprisingly, I found this in a local pawn shop for $20ÖCanít beat that price!
Next up is a crimp brooch GCM named to a Donald W. Gross. Could be a modern award or a reissue (there is a WWII enlistment record with the same name). Iíll probably never know. It looks as though someone scratched the back of this I assume to check for gold contentÖIím sure GCMís would be looked at a lot differently if there was!
