    Yeah i still have more items that i forgot to bring lol. The thing that i though was funny that he has an S.S honor dagger with its original hanger and is like in perfect condition. He thought is was worth less because one of the latches on the hanger broke off. My mouth dropped and i laughed because he dosent know that the dagger is worth to up to 1k lol.

    An perfect condition SS Honor Dagger even without the hanger and it's "broken latch" would be worth considerably more than a grand...

    Really like the large Imperial eagle and at $60.00 that was a steal for that alone IMO!

    Good luck on buying other items from the guy!

    The 86th was the only US Division to serve both in Europe and in the Pacific Theater. Specifically, they did clean-up operations in the Phillipines ...thus the red-white-and-blue ribbon. How do I know you might ask. Well, an 80 something year-old friend who served in the 86th and I our going back to Southern Germany in September of 2013.

    He recently wrote: "After our Division cut the Ruhr Pocket in half from South to north, we were trucked some 220 miles to Wurzburg (now Rochester's Sister City), with a castle (now a museum), a Bishop's Palace that is a palace (to go with their status as being also a secular governor), fine wines, and a yearly Mozart Festival. We went South East and picked up 3 boom-tailed Lockheed P-38's (or -50's--I forget) to support us. We headed to Rothenburg (a preserved medieval wall and old town), to Eichstadt, Ingolstadt (there a BBC station reported that we were nearly 200 miles from the city), arched around Munich (south south west of Munich is Ludwig's famed Schwangau Castle--think Disneyland--and well worth visiting), arching half-way around Munich and then eastwards again )here I joined the Company clerk to Berchtesgarten--captured 2 days before by the 101st Airborne), crossing into Austria above Salzburg (ah! Mozart!), and driving on past Gnunden and Schwanenstadt--ceded later to the Russians. There will be festivals everywhere--and bratwurst und beer! Your friend, Leo
