    Very nice 27th Div...(O'Ryan/Orion Div.) I am sure you will display it with pride.

    Very nice! Does your neighbor have a photo of his father during the war? Even a copy would really enhance the helmet display.

    Very nice New York Division lid and it even has provenance. You certainly can't ask for more than that unless you got it for free, which is what it sounds like you did! Congrats!
