The planchet and ribbon of the good conduct were missing, and were replaced. Unfortunately the 2ND Division SSI was removed as was the left sleeve rank. Most likely the patches were placed in a frame back in the 20s or 30s by the Veteran himself.. The rank patch was replaced with a correct PFC patch. Group turned up in a Pennsylvania house clean out and was written up by the auctioneer, which is included.

U-936    This is one of the "Holy Grail" uniforms for collectors of WWI US Marine Corps Material. Authentic WWI Marine Officer's uniforms are impossible to find, much less with this kind of condition and history. This Officer, then a an enlisted man, came across with the 6TH Marine Regiment in 1917 and went into combat in the early Spring of 1918 with the 82ND Company, 6TH Marine Regiment serving from March to May near Verdun. He then went to Belleau Wood where he was severely wounded on June 3RD as they were approaching the wood itself. He spent July and August in hospital before returning to combat in time for St. Mihiel in September, Champagne in October at Mont Blanc, the Meuse Argonne sector October to Nov. He received the Silver Star for valor for his actions at Mt Blanc. Following the Armistice he received a promotion to 2ND Lieutenant. His French made Officers tunic and trousers are named to him. Wonderful German or French made 3RD Battalion, 6TH Regiment patch adorns the sleeve. Interestingly the Tailor must not have had Marine Officers buttons in stock and substituted blackened Naval Officers buttons. When I got the uniform one collar device was missing, so a replacement was found. these are quite rare as they are French made. In the pocket is the original shipping box for his Purple Heart. This heart was removed from the box just prior to the uniform being sold, so it is out there waiting to be found!! I doubt you will ever see a Marine Officer's set of this quality, with this kind of history. Full research included. $7995. ON HOLD
