    Default New Arrival medal lot

    Hi,
    I got this today. its a 3 piece parade bar with ribbons.
    It came with a box, slightly beat up but ok. came with the original bravery certificate,
    I normally don't like items that come with bibles etc but I liked the rest of the lot
    bible was from 1950 and later filled with religious cards
    on the inside flap I found 4 pictures which look like that had been hidden or stored there.
    they are alpine troops(I think) during ww2. that was a real bonus.
    Neat little set
    General Putnam

    I don't think I have ever seen that maker of Hindenburg cross before.

    can anyone help me on the unit stated on the certificeate?
    as always If you need more pics I can send

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Very nice friend. The Medal bar with the case is a great find.
    The photo of the old sway backed mule with the soldier setting on him is funny, at least to this old Oklahoma guy.

    Very nice. From the photo, it looks like the certificate is a photocopy. But you have it in hand so know better.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I took the picture under my kitchen lights. so it picked up glare the crown and ribbon border is slightly glossy and the rest of the writing and everything inside the border is matte and hand written. its hard to pick up the contrast been the elements in pictures.it does look like a copy, but I am pretty sure its ok.

    Not rare, but surely more uncommon than EK2 1914 documents. They sell around 40 . Check this one:
