Just a great looking car pennant, that was flown on a car in the victory parades at the end of the war. Just the right amount of wear, some fraying and a small hole at the top of the pennant. It still has an 8 inch section of the original wood pole that was affixed to the car. It measures 6 inches by 15 inches and is one sided. Neat piece.
One of the coolest things I've run across in awhile. Brought back by a member of the 104th Division and given to a young man in Hummelstown, Pa. who's father was a member of that Division. A weathered and used briefcase belonging to "A. Pfeifer" Stabsintendant of Stalag IVB, Muhlberg/aElbe" on the nametag. This was one of the largest camps and housed British and American POW's among many other nationalities. It was a brutal camp by what I have read. If only this briefcase could talk!!
In this framed grouping are medals that belonged to James Leo Baker, of Harrisburg, Pa. WW1 Victory Medal (no bars, as he stayed in Pa. working on the railroad), Pa. and Harrisburg Service Medals, Soldiers and Sailor's Bridge Medal, Keystone pin, Keystone Medal and a Harrisburg Watch Fob. Not in the frame, but from his estate, his 28th Div. Service Medal and ribbon. All for $230/ Also found in his belongings were his KKK Hero Cross, 2nd Model, but not named to him, as I'm sure it was something he didn't want everyone to know about. This medal is the highest award given out by the Klan and it is priced at $550. I would let everything go for $700, so as to keep it all together.
A neat little grouping to a Pilot that later flew with VA-35, while he was on the USS Enterprise when it crossed the Equator. A beautiful document, the wallet card and seal for the document, his official "Summons" for King Neptune's court and the original mailing tube it was sent to him in. He later retired as a Commander in the USNR. All for one money. I also have his VA-35 Squadron Patch listed separately.
