    After talking to her this morning these will be all I am able to get. She is mailing them to me free of charge and I am grateful and honored to own them. I think she can't bare to part with the display above and I don't blame her one bit.

    Tons more original photos emailed to me this morning coming after a while to cap off this thread until I get home and start dressing my first mannequin.

    This entire thread started on a boring Saturday morning with nothing to do. Went online searching through estate sales in the area. A simple tag line caught my eye. "WW2 collectibles"... You never know what you will run in to.

    These are the items that I will put back on his ike jacket that I already purchased. Very kind of her to give them to me. It boiled down to being the only guy running through the estate sale picking only the militaria then being the weirdo talking with her dad and taking photos with him. I'm pretty sure the other people who were buying blenders, pots and pans etc, thought I was very strange.

    I know its not about your stuff but here is a little tid bit of secret service history, My Father was a Marine at 8th and I security detail for the white house during the Eisenhower administration.
    He told me you could tell who the secret service agents were in the crowds by them wearing their Ruptured Duck.

    Jackpot on this pick up Cous
