    Thanks for the compliment. Most of those were aquired in the last year. I had 3 or 4 I had picked up over the years, but had mostly collected WW2 and Vietnam stuff. I started focusing more on WW1 last fall. I've got a couple others on the way and a couple that aren't pictured yet. I try to find complete ones when I can. More will follow as I get them photo'ed.

    Fins..

    Yeah no worries mate, Definately put them up when you get them, whats the price of these like over there? I occasionaly see the odd American ww1 tunic on ebay and at militaria fairs here and theyre usually dirt cheap for what they are, usually in the $100-$200au range, you can some times pay 10 times that for Australian one though, thats why I just stick to ww2 and Vietnam Laughing

    They are around $100 to $200 US here. I find a few cheap ones now and then, and a lot of expensive ones. I kinda look for a mix of good price and insignia..LOL

    Tunic of replacement Cpl. Paul A. Normandin, MP Detatchment, 42nd Division. Service stripe on this one is silver, for 6 - 11 months service stateside, meaning he arrived in France in late 1918, earning less than 6 months overseas.

    This one belonged to my grandmother's cousin. I have quite a few things from him. I'll do a seperate thread on that sometime. Cpl. Howard Cummins Enlisted in 1916 in Co. K, 4th Ohio Infantry. He served on the Mexican Border guardin against Pancho Villa's raiders in Texas. In 1917 his unit was federalized as the 166th Inf. Regt, 42nd Div. He was reduced in rank to private, and stayed in Co. K. He was wounded by gas in April of 1918.

    You've made my Sunday! Thank you for showing/sharing!

    How on Earth did these (presumably) 100% wool uniforms survive in such great condition, until they fell into your clutches?!

    There are still gems to be found out there. They can get pricey tho! To get my great-cousin's grouping cost me over $500, but it also came with his named, numbered, early issue Purple Heart, along with paperwork. Others have cost me a couple hundred. I try to look for condition, although the 39th Div one is rather moth eaten. The insignia is fantastic and the wool is high quality taloring from France. Both the dealer and myself bought it to strip but couldn't bring ourselves to do it do to the original high quality of the tunic. Lately I've been focusing on just Rainbow Division stuff from WW1 tho. Most of them are wool. 2 or 3 are cotton and one of the USN ones is cotton except for the cuffs and collar bib. Definetly enjoy finding them. Glad I made your day!
