    I would love a matching helmet and tunic set. Mine doesn't have any insignia, but neither does my helmet, so it works out.
    A helmet-uniform set would be sweet. Haven't seen too many of them.

    It doesn't have to be matching per se, just an eventually put-together uniform with matching insignia. I wouldn't mind picking up a 28th I.D. tunic from one place and a 28th I.D. helmet from another, for example.

    The shop where I got this tunic has a ton of other WWI items, including a dead mint and complete WWI tunic for $150. I might pick that one up too when I have the cash.

    What do you mean by complete?
    Because 150$ for a complete ww1 that is a very good deal.

    There is no divisional insignia, but the collar discs and buttons are all there. And the thing is dead mint, seriously. There isn't a single nip or moth bite. The wool is still very soft.

    Complete combat uniform, though? That may be impossible to find on its own. Would probably have to be put together piece by piece.

    I think unit markings on forks are the bee's knees. I'm not sure why. lol

    Thanks for showing yours Chris!
    It would be an interesting side line of collecting all by itself-trying to pick up as many Different unit marked forks as possible! (Thank God I'm too old to go off and get started on another obsession! I think that This one would be one to keep a person busy for decades! lol)

    That reminds me of my previously considered antique toothbrush collection...

    Or buy it for me and I'll send you the money Either way, go grab it. Tunics alone are $140-200 by dealers depending on what they are.
