ORIGINAL USMC CAPTAINS BLACK AGED RANK & DOG TAG SETS!
EARLY USMC ACID ETCHED RIGHT INDEX FINGER TYPE DOG TAG
Here we have a small grouping of items that span the career of local US Marine Corps officer. He began in the WWI days and you will find 4 of his items in that grouping. A nice set of items. Including:

Enlisted man's collar disc round. Very rare in USMC. A WWI Victory medal that has his initials on it FGM, For Francis G. Miller. You will also find his 1917 range serial numbered good conduct medal. It has 4 engraved front and back re-enlistment bars, spanning service from 1921 - 1924. 1924 - 1927. 1927 - 1931, and 1931 - 1935. HE HAS THE SAME GOOD CONDUCT MEDAL NUMBER ENGRAVED ON EACH SERVICE ENLISTMENT BAR, MAKING A SET!

There is also a Sterling marked, two piece USMC, pattern 1910 Expert Sharpshooters Badge. His WWII items are most impressive. A rank and dog tag set, as you see here. An Iwo photo of the flag raising, SIGNED BY IRA HAYES, JOHN A BRADLEY AND GAGNON!

As to this offering: Perfectly in shape, guaranteed originals, purchased from the great grand daughter of the man. Shame people have no taste for heroes. Sterling marked on the reverse of the large one set of Captain bars, which are the highly stylized and attractive SHOLD-R-FORMS by NS Meyer.

The dog tag is original, and you can research the range on the number to see his history. The Small captains bars are one marched set sterling marked with the logo of a hallmarked eagle inside a star with H-H on it. The other third one for the cap or such is a RARE MAKER, A.H. DONDERO IN WASHINGTON DC! All are pin backs, ZERO DEFECTS.

No hidden surprises. I love the black aged on the large Captains Bars!

The real costly and rare item is the Officer's Right Index Finger etched dog tag! In any regard, USMC dog tags are tough to come across. Guaranteed original!
