OC-2444  Outrageously RARE American Volunteer in the Polish Legion, also known as "Haller's army". This individual was born overseas but had come to America. He was living in Philadelphia, PA at the time. Includes his tunic, trousers and Tshapka. This uniform surfaced about 15 years ago and was sold to a good friend of mine who passed away last year. He paid $5000 for it then. It is only one of 2 or 3 such uniform sets I have seen in my 40 years of chasing WW1 artifacts. The name was obtained from the family and research is included. Instead of being assigned to a rifle unit in the Polish Legion, he was utilized in an Engineer unit within the unit. I can't describe the rarity level of this. $5895  $SOLD$

OC-2420    UNBELIEVABLEY RARE!!!!! WW1 Brodie helmet with original burlap cover. Real ones never show up for sale. I have only had 3, in 40 years of collecting WW1 material. I have probably seen 150-200 fakes. This came out of Vermont about 7 years ago. The helmet shows a strike from a shrapnel ball to the crown of the helmet. It looks like the Doughboy wanted to show this off and exposed the dent. The helmet has the name "Dale" and a serial number If it is Canadian I have not found it, if it is American it is to a member of the 338TH Infantry, 85TH Division. A couple of the numbers are tough to read, but with a first name it most likely will turn up. One of the really cool things about this cover is that it is actually sewn directly to the liner. Shows actual combat use and wear. I think its fair to say this is one of the best examples in existence. Don't miss it. $2595
