    Yes there is at least a couple of others because there are a few boards where someone had beat me to that handle.
    However of recent I have found that some of them had long ago gone away because they had not posted for from 5 to 8 years.
    I got those boards to change my handle from Sarge 13 to Sarge.
    Little by little I will whittle them down to none!

    This is the most valued item of my collection so far. It's an Order of People's Army with golden star from Yugoslavia. My grandpa was awarded with this order in 1985 as a technical Lieutenant-colonel of Yugoslav People's Army.

    DWM "American Eagle" Luger? What makes you sure it is a test pistol (I presume you're referring to military trials)? DWM made several thousand for commercial sale in the US.

    Without a doubt, my fuel oil sample collected from the USS ARIZONA, in Pearl Harbor. I know its authentic because I collected it.

    1541A405-BCDB-40BD-BEC6-036E28C43238.jpeg I have posted this elsewhere on the forum, my father’s, he went from private to captain. Tank Destroyers and 29th Infantry division. From 1941 to 1945. I also have his canteen and mess kit and assorted patches. I just thought of something, funny this should post on this date. He died 31 years ago tonight, in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

    For me, out of all of my items in my collection I consider the most important one that is connected to Frederick Davis. He was my uncles brother in law that was part of the D-Day invasion. Unfortunately he was killed 14 days later and is buried at Normandy Beach. His wife kept a huge scrap book of his service time including all of the condolences that were sent to her after his death. She never re-married and the grouping was given to me after my uncles death. I have had the opportunity to pay my respects to his grave on multiple times which always made my Uncle feel at ease since they always were concerned that family could not visit him.

    All of my dad's possessions from that time in his life are near and dear to me. I had never thought about what my "favorite" piece was, until this question popped up. It would have to be his train ticket stub home, dated the same as his discharge date, October 22, 1945.
