OC-2141   Set of 3 awards of the Croix de Guerre for a French Soldier in the 2ND Brigade, Chasseurs and then the 230TH Infantry Regiment. Includes the medal and 3 certificates.

OC-2140    Amazing rimless Brodie British Trophy helmet. for a member of the Cambridgeshire Regiment. Unit crest with hand painted gold leaf battle honors from 1916-18. Has been shellacked at some time in the past. Very cool item. $450
OC-2139   Exceptionally Rare. Haller's Army, Polish Legion in France uniform, for a member of the 2ND Regiment, 1ST Polish Division. The information was written on the interior of the tunic, most likely in the 1970s. This collector operated a small private Polish museum in Chicago and so marked the uniform as part of his collection. He also states in Polish, that the Soldier converted his overcoat tailored into a tunic. Great uniform from a Volunteer that returned home after the armistice and did not continue fighting in 1919-21. So the insignia is wartime, not the typically seen post War 1920s collar insignia. The only flaw is the shoulder strap Polish eagles once had embroidered bullion rings around the outside edge. It appears they were damaged and were removed, then resewn. Extremely rare Haller's Army tunic. Only the 2ND one I have been able to get my hands on in 30+ years of buying WW1 uniforms. The Polish/American Volunteer medal was added for display, but will be included. .$4,295  $SOLD$
