    I'll mention those points when I show this armband. Makes a good point of discussion anyway.

    Thanks

    Very nice and broad ranging collection you have there! I love it!

    Could you single out a few pieces as your favorites?

    Best,

    OK Joe, one more try. The Legion of Merit grouping and the USMC Brevet Medal are a few of my favorite medals. But the the Navy Corpsmans medic bag and Silver Start group and the Army one with the named Purlpe Heart and CIB are also a couple nice ones too, The Army group was from Brunko Runko Miljus. Captured in Korea but then they denied he was later. He was a Chech who had immigrated before WWII. The Army thinks he was taken to Russia but not officially. No one has seen or heard from him since. The Corpsmans bag was closed up after Vietnam and only opened up last year, It still has the wounded soldier cards from about 6 Marines.

    That was from a US Army soldier (LERP) in 1967. He was sent to Cambodia to try to stop supplies from reaching VietNam. They came across a Russian T-72 tank. They hit the tank with a LAW rocket disabling it. One of the NVA soldiers who came out of the hatch had a very old cap and ball rifle ( Cambodian army issue) a Chinese canteen, NVA belt and a Russian tankers helmet. He fired on the US troops with the single shot cap and ball rifle and they returned fire with all they had. The NVA soldier lost that battle. I have all of his items including the rifle he used and a handmade grenade that was on the belt. Great story.

    very nice brilliant little cards i believe there are only 10 left at large
    I have a full pack, said to have been bought back by a relative of the person I bought them from, though if that is true and if they are original I don't know. Some of the faces are just black silouettes.

    I knew that Tom, and thanks for confirming it, I just wondered how you tell if they are originals as I assume these, like most things, have been copied/faked?

    What design do yours have on the back? My set have a camo pattern. The batteries on my camera are on charge, but I'll post some pics later or tomorrow.
