It would be quite a valuable collection if it proves to be all original ! The slip on LAH titles are very nice .
Hope it all turns out to be real and you can get it for a good price .
Thanks, CBH. I don't think I'll be buying, however did want to help them out as we made a good deal on a US grouping I recently acquired from them.
Looking online, I estimate the total value of everything at over $12K (if all original). Am I way off (+/-)?
I'm going to request revers shots of the items in the 2nd photo. I imagine this all came out of the estate of a US vet.
$12K is a lot of money.
Clearer shots would help , but 12 is about right , as a group , you'd get more if you pieced it out .
If it proves to be original , have them sell it here , should be lots of interest .

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Thanks to everyone for their feedback. I hope to get some clearer photos. Haven't talked to the seller so not sure of their intentions to sell, i.e. sell as a lot or piece it out.
Regardless, I'll definitely recommend the forum as a sale venue.
I've tried searching online, however am having difficulty identifying the writing on the below cufftitle. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
