Circa 1936-1941 pre-World War II German American Bund flag. These flags are quite rare, as the German American Bund, also known as the German American Federation, was established in 1936 and quickly dissolved 5 years later in 1941 due to America's entrance into World War II. The Bund mirrored Germany during the reign of the Third Reich by holding rallies with Nazi insignia and adopting procedures such as the Hitler salute, while also attacking the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt as well as Jewish-American groups citizens. Interestingly, the party also claimed to show its loyalty to the United States by displaying the American flag alongside the flag of Nazi Germany. After the United States was thrust into World War II the members of the German American Bund were ostracized and much of the symbolism they adopted was destroyed. Therefore, the American Nazi flags of this short period are seldom encountered. This example was manufactured by an American flag company and retains its original label that reads "THE NAME / ANNIN / GUARANTEES / QUALITY" and "STERLING / REG. U.S. PAT. OFF. / FAST COLOR-DOUBLE / WARP ALL WOOL BUNTING". The flag is also faintly stamped "5 x 8" on the hoist and also displays the name "MERCHAN" written in ink. Despite the measurement stamp the flag registers just under 8' in length. The flag is constructed of wool bunting and has 1 brass grommet at each end of the hoist. The white circle and swastika are sewn to the flag, rather than printed on. CONDITION: The flag exhibits various holes in the wool bunting, the largest measuring approximately 4". The flag is clean overall and the stitching remains tight. Overall good. JLD

Designed by Louis Scmeisser (father of the more widely known Hugo Schmeisser) the MG-15nA was adopted by the German military in 1915 to meet the requirements for more machine guns on the frontlines. Being substantially lighter than the MG 08/15 due to its lack of a water jacket, the MG-15nA relied on air cooling which paired with an impressive rate of fire for the time, limited its versatility in combat, and thus never seeing the widespread usage as that of its contemporaries. Finding usage as an aircraft machine gun, the MG-15nA was considered a generally reliable machine gun that was utilized until the Treaty of Versailles, which ultimately concluded its manufacture. This example's receiver was cut into 3 pieces and was later welded back together. Additionally, the bolt face was welded into chamber, negating any possible usage. The right side of the receiver cover is stamped "1917/ BERGMANN'S JNDUSTRIEWERKE/ ABT. WAFFENBAU, SUHL", with the top reading "L.M.G.15./ n.A". Right side of trigger assembly and top of stock assembly & charging handle are stamped "L.M.G.15.n.A". Top of charging handle and top of barrel bear Imperial German Reichsadler stamps.

Ammo can is missing its latch and shows oxidation all around. A nice example of a rarely seen World War I machine gun, that will make for a fine addition to one's display. MLW Accessories: Ammo Can

Fine example of a piece of World War II German aircraft fabric, that was most likely cut from the tail section of a light aircraft. This type of linen fabric covered the aluminum ribs and stringers on the fuselage, flaps, ailerons, rudder, and elevators of various German aircraft before and during World War II. These types of fabric coverings were utilized by many nations during the war, as the fabric was used to reduce the weight of the surface behind the hinge line so that the mass-balance weight could also be reduced. This example is painted dark green with a white swastika. Given the dark green camouflage, this aircraft could have been used in a variety of theaters. It is possible that this section was cut from a Fi156 "Stork" or a DFS230 glider, considering the construction of these two light aircraft. CONDITION: The fabric is decently preserved and appears to have been folded at some point, due to the cracking pattern. This was most likely from being cut from an aircraft, then being stored in a GI's pocket or haversack, finally being folded in order to be sent home as a war souvenir. The edges are uneven, and the fabric measures approximately 17" x 15 - 1/2" not including the frame. The colors remain vibrant and there are typical blemishes that would be expected of a piece of fabric that was cut off of an aircraft during World War II. Overall very good.

The 10 x 50 Dienstglas were one of the most popular binoculars that were issued to German soldiers throughout World War II. They were also popular amongst American soldiers who commonly collected the binoculars as war trophies. This pair is no exception and in not an ordinary pair of Dienstglas binoculars, as this pair was captured by then Lieutenant Colonel Theodore Mataxis who would later retire from the Unites States Army as a Brigadier General. The pair of binoculars is special, not just because they are a war trophy, but because they are accompanied by a case which reveals their story. The case is identified to Lt. Col. Mataxis, as he wrote his name, unit information, where, and when these binoculars were captured. During World War II, Mataxis was the commander of the 2nd Battalion, 276th Infantry Regiment from 1943-1945 and fought with the unit during the infamous winter of 1944-45. He wrote on the inside flap that the binoculars were captured during Operation Nordwind from the 6th SS Nord Division during the winter of 1944. Operation Nordwind was the last major German offensive of World War II on the Western Front which began on December 31, 1944 and ended on January 25, 1945. Mataxis obviously treasured these binoculars, as he carried these throughout his military career and listed all of the countries he traveled to with these binoculars on the interior flap and the front of the case. The binoculars are marked "Dienstglas / 10x50 / 18506 / blc +" They are complete with the leather strap and leather lens cover. The cover is faintly marked "Lt. Col. Theo C. Mataxis / Jan 1945 / 6 SS Nord Division". There is a US Army Corps of Engineers compass secured to the neck strap. As mentioned, the case is wonderfully marked in ink with all of the locations Mataxis traveled throughout the war and also locations that Mataxis traveled throughout his service during the Korean War. Finally, the binoculars are accompanied by a copy of a wartime photograph of Lt. Col. Mataxis with the binoculars around his neck. CONDITION: The optics remain clear and focus properly. The binoculars exhibit typical wear from field use. The case remains pliable exhibiting various blemishes, the only flaw is the broken case strap. This is a nice pair of binoculars with an even better story that are attributed to a significant US military figure. Overall very good. JLD Paperwork: Photograph of LTC. Mataxis with binoculars

Excellent example of an early 20th century patriotic U.S. naval trapunto commemorating a sailor's cruise. This embroidery was most likely made in Japan as a souvenir to commemorate the US fleet's voyage to Japan. The trapunto banner is constructed of beautiful silk floss and metallic thread that is embroidered on a slate black silk field. The designs feature typical American themes and are very patriotic in nature. The words "IN. REMEMBRANCE. OF. MY. CRUISE. HAWAII. PHILIPPINE. CHINA. AND. JAPAN." are embroidered overtop of 13 white stars followed by a spread winged screaming eagle that features exquisite detailed feathers and eye. The eagle is perched on bundles of arrows which are behind a thick silk threaded patriotic shield that contains a photograph of three unidentified sailors. The shield sits in between a panoply of American flags, three on each side. The flags drape down to the bottom of the banner and hover above crossed cannons, an anchor, and cannonballs that rest on top of a banner that reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM". Finally, completing the banner is a wonderful painting of a Great White Fleet ship slicing through the waves of an angry sea in the foreground of a menacing dark sky. CONDITION: The colors remain strong and vibrant. The thick designs remain intact with no signs of loose threads and pop out of the banner.

Wonderful large example of an early 20th century patriotic U.S. naval trapunto commemorating a sailor's Pacific cruise. This embroidery was most likely made in Japan as a souvenir for the sailor to commemorate his expedition to Japan with the Great White Fleet. The trapunto banner is constructed of beautiful silk floss and metallic thread that is embroidered on a slate black silk background. The designs feature both American and Japanese themes and are very patriotic in nature. The words "IN REMEMBRANCE OF MY CRUISE CHINA JAPAN AND PHILIPPINE ISLANDS" are contained in a banner that is flanked by elegant scrollwork.

The flag is beautifully made with a tasteful crosshatch pattern throughout its length. The eagle is bold with elegant details to the feathers and even contains the details of a bloodshot eye. It almost seems as if the eagle is in battle with the roaring Japanese dragon at the bottom of the banner, as both creatures appear to lunge at one another, locking eyes anticipating an attack. The dragon is constructed of thick silk floss and metallic thread and seems as if it will come to life. Centered in between the two creatures is a patriotic shield resting on top of arrows and olive branches. The shield contains a photograph of an unidentified sailor, who most likely requested this banner be made to commemorate his cruise. CONDITION: The colors remain strong and vibrant. The thick designs remain intact with the only signs of loose thread evidenced on the eagle's left wingtip. This example is professionally framed and the vignette compliments the banner.

Excellent example of an early 20th century patriotic U.S. naval trapunto commemorating a sailor's Pacific cruise. Not only is the craftsmanship of this banner stunning, but it is also researchable as it is identified to the sailor that this banner was made for. This embroidery was most likely made in Japan as a souvenir for the sailor to commemorate his voyage to Japan with the USS California. The banner is constructed of beautiful silk floss and metallic thread that is embroidered on a slate blue silk field. The words "IN REMEMBRANCE OF MY CRUISE CHINA JAPAN AND PHILIPPINE WATERS" are contained in a banner that is draped over 13 white stars. The banner and stars rest above a perched screaming eagle that is perched on bundles of arrows which are behind a thick silk threaded patriotic shield that contains a photograph of the sailor. The shield sits in between a panoply of American flags, three on each side. The flags drape down to the bottom of the banner and hover above crossed cannons, an anchor, and cannon balls that rest on top of a banner that reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM". The dates "1908" and "1912" flank the sides and the name "CARL. KAISER. / COPPERSMITH" is centered just above the banner. Finally, the highlight of the embroidery is a beautiful painting of the USS California leading a column of US naval vessels with Mt. Fuji shadowing the armada in the background. CONDITION: The embroidery presents excellently and would compliment any naval collection. The colors remain strong and vibrant. The thick designs remain intact with a few signs of wear including the left edge of the banner which has loosened and a flaw towards the center of the anchor. Regardless, the designs still pop and the embroidery presents excellently in the professional, sturdy frame and would compliment any naval collection. Overall very good. JLD

Nice example of a World War II Japanese Type 94-6 radio assembly. The Type 94-6 is a compact single-valve portable transceiver that was manufactured in Japan and used by the Japanese Army throughout World War II. Development for the Type 94-6 began in 1934 and production continued throughout the war. This particular example is dated October 1939, according to the data plate. The radio is very compact compared to other radios of the era and is well built. The entire radio is housed inside a rectangular metal box and would be carried in a case. This example is stored in a case that is constructed of rubberized canvas, the same material that some Nambu holsters are constructed of. CONDITION: The radio is overall complete but is missing the detachable antenna. The radio is very clean and the metal box retains most of its original paint while exhibiting scattered scratches and blemishes. The lid latches correctly and the metal box is complete with the data plate. The rubberized canvas case is clean, but the straps are somewhat stiff. The two snaps are missing from the front of the case and the snaps on the lid exhibit corrosion. There are scattered blemishes and leather flaking throughout. Overall good. JLD

Lot#: 64973214

This is a very rare and extensive lot that is named to Colonel William Patient and his wife Lieutenant Colonel Edith Marie Wimberly, who is better known as on of the "Angels of Bataan." Edith Marie Wimberly was born on February 17, 1911 in Campti, Louisiana. She joined the U.S. Army, served as a nurse, and became a leading figure among a handful of U.S. Army nurses that were captured by the Japanese upon the surrender of Corregidor in early 1942. These nurses were known, and are remembered as the "Angels of Bataan." This group of nurses were members of the US Army Nurse Corps and the US Navy Nurse Corps who were stationed in the Philippines at the outset of World War II. They were unable to be evacuated when the Japanese empire was steamrolling American defenses in the Philippines and they continued to serve during the fighting. When American fighting forces were exhausted and Bataan and Corregidor capitulated, a total of 78 nurses, 11 navy nurses, 66 army nurses, and 1 nurse-anesthetist were captured by the Japanese and imprisoned throughout Manila. Despite their status as prisoners, they continued to serve as a nursing unit. The nurses were taken to the campus of the University of Santo Tomas which was converted to the Santo Tomas Internment Camp. Later, the navy nurses were sent to an internment camp at Los Banos, where they were able to establish an infirmary and courageously continued their duties. While in captivity, the nurses cared for fellow prisoners, including survivors of the Bataan Death March and other Japanese abuses. Their service did not go unnoticed back in America, as three movies were produced that dramatized their actions. The Angels did as much as they could for their fellow prisoners up until they were liberated by the 1st Cavalry Division on February 3, 1945. After her liberation she continued to serve long after the war and became a Flight Nurse with the rank of Lt. Col. in the US Air Force. She married Air Force Medical Doctor Colonel William F. Patient and the two lived happily together. Wimberly passed away on May 18, 1964 leaving behind an notable legacy. The group includes incredible photographs that were taken throughout Edith's military service. Many of the photos measure 8x10" and are high quality US military produced photos. There are several photos of Edith and her fellow nurses exiting a C-54 Skymaster after they returned to the United States. In many of the photos, Edith's Bronze Star ribbon is seen on her uniform, as each of the nurses were awarded the Bronze Star after they were liberated. Also included are photos of her with the other Angels, receiving promotions, awards, at social gatherings, and portraits. There are also several interesting pieces of wartime ephemera including a Santo Thomas Interment Camp meal ticket that is named to Edith. There are several period newspaper clippings that also describe her and the other nurses. The other photos and ephemera in the group are attributed to Edith's husband and document his service in the Air Force during the Cold War Era. Edith's unengraved Bronze Star and Legion of Merit are also included along with three books that were written about the Angels of Bataan. This grouping is historically significant, not only for World War II history, but for women's history, as it tells the tail of women who suffered in captivity, yet managed to courageously administer aid to their fellow prisoners highlighting the strength of women throughout World War II. CONDITION: Most of the photos are in very good condition. The newspapers articles have yellowed but remain intact. Most of the ephemera exhibits blemishes that are typical of old paper. Overall very good. JLD

Great 1930s Army Air Corps photo album with wonderful content named from a young Paul T. Cullen, who would later have an extensive career in the US Air Force. Cullen was born in Ica, Peru on May 30, 1901. He later moved to California and in his young adult years entered the service as a flying cadet in 1928. A year later, after graduating from primary and advanced flying schools, he received a commission as a second lieutenant in the Air Reserve. His first assignment was at Crissy Field, California, where he served with the 91st Observation Squadron. He would see service around the United States as he entered the Air Corps Technical School at Chanute Field, Illinois and was then sent to Mitchel Field, New York upon the completion of the photo courses. Throughout his time in New York, he commanded the 8th and 14th Photo Sections, and served with the 61st Service Squadron and the 1st, 5th, and 99th Squadrons of the 9th Observation Group. He was also a flight commander with the 97th Observation Squadron and operations officer in the 18th Reconnaissance Squadron. During World War II Cullen was sent overseas as a military observer with the Royal Air Force in the Middle and Far East. He was later selected to head a special reconnaissance mission to Africa, and upon his return in July, was assigned as commander of the First Mapping Group, with headquarters in Washington D.C. Unfortunately in 1943, Cullen broke his back in an aviation related accident. Cullen did not let his back injury stand in the way of his service and after his recovery he was sent overseas to command the 7th Photo Group of the 8th Air Force. In February, 1944, he was assigned on temporary duty with the U.S. Military Mission in Moscow for the purpose of setting up reconnaissance bases in the Ukraine. Cullen was successful with negotiations for the establishment of these bases and he became the deputy commander for operations of the Eastern Command of the U.S. Strategic Air Forces in Europe. He later made the first shuttle flight into the Ukraine in an unarmed F-5 on May 26, 1944. Later that same year, he assumed command of the Second Bomb Group of the 15th Air Force in Italy. After VE Day, he was sent to the Marianas Islands with the 20th Air Force and returned to the Unites States after VJ day. His career continued into the post war years until March 23, 1951 when a C-124 he was flying on ditched in the ocean 800 miles southwest of Ireland after a cargo fire. The crew made it out of the Globemaster II safely and loaded into life rafts. A B-29 from the 509th located the survivors and reported their position, however no ships or aircraft arrived to the coordinates until March 25, 1951, two days after the crash. None of the crew were ever recovered and General Cullen remains missing to this day. The album preserves Cullen's memory and features over 200 photos spread out over 116 pages. The photos are great and they depict early Air Corps aircraft, both in flight and on the ground, photos of barracks, vehicles, mascots in flight gear (dogs), gunnery practice, and training. There are also photos of aviation accidents and photos as well as photos of General Spaatz and other high ranking US officers at the time. Most of the aircraft exhibit the 43d Aero Squadron emblem and were taken during Cullen's time at Kelly Field, Texas. Also included are many photos of aircraft in formation great aerial photos, and pilots goofing around. The photos vary in sizes but are mostly clear and provide great insight to the life of a 1930s Air Corps officer. CONDITION: Some of the photos exhibit fading, and it appears as though some were overexposed. Most of the photos are clear and their edges remain sharp. Some pages exhibit creases and small tears. The album no longer retains the binding strings so all of the pages are loose. Despite this, the album is very well preserved. Overall very good. JLD

Fantastic Pre-World War II photo album that belonged to Captain Arthur W. Wermuth, who is better known as "The One-Man Army of Bataan". Wermuth's story is nothing short of incredible. He started his military career in 1936 when he received his commission as second lieutenant. He entered active duty in 1941 and was sent overseas to to the Philippines where he was promoted to captain in December 1941. After war broke out and the Japanese invasion of the Philippines, Wermuth was at the epicenter of the conflict as he was one of a handful of Americans in the primarily Filipino 57th Infantry Regiment of the Philippine Scouts. Almost immediately after hostilities commenced, Wermuth was actively rallying troops in order to attempt to save the Philippines. In January 1942, Wermuth organized a group of 185 Filipinos into a group that became known as "suicide snipers". Their purpose was to counter enemy infiltration behind American lines and as a counter-sniper force. Only three weeks after their establishment, Wermuth and the suicide snipers claimed over 500 enemy kills while losing 45 of their own men. Wermuth was not immune to enemy fire as he was wounded several times during his disruptive tactics. He was shot in the leg in January while on a successful mission to destroy a bridge and burn an enemy encampment, shot in the left breast in February and later left the medical facility without permission in order to rejoin his men on the front lines. In early April he was put out of action again as he was seriously injured when he fell down a ravine. He awakened in Field Hospital Number 2 as it was being overrun by Japanese forces and was subsequently captured. He was treated by his Japanese captors and spared from the infamous Bataan Death March. Wermuth spent three years as a POW and throughout that time he was beaten for standing up against the brutality towards his men, and spent time on two hell ships, one of which was sunk by aircraft from the USS Hornet. He survived the sinking and spent time at Cabanatuan. In 1945, he was finally liberated by the Russians. Wermuth received the Distinguished Service Cross, Silver Star, and several Purple Hearts for his actions in the Philippines. He became known as the "One-Man Army of Bataan" and was widely credited with over 116 kills although he modestly credited the Filipino scouts for their heroism under fire. Wermuth's album is very nice and is named to him on the front cover. The album contains 40 pages of photos that feature the lifestyle of the prewar Pacific. Most of the photos are labeled and range from landscapes, to early vehicles, to military parades, and camp life. Interestingly, there are several documents including identification paperwork that was carried by locals. There are also several loose letters inside the front cover that were written or typed by Wermuth and he reveals his feelings of the tense situation. In one letter he writes "The war situation seems very bad here ad they dont know what is going to happen. The rumor here from unofficial sources are that there are four thousand troops coming over here between now and the first. With the small garrison of Marines moving out of China I dont wonder that its true. Things look very black here nevertheless." The letters are all very interesting to read and are dated November 1941 when war was looming. There is also a very nice portrait photo of Wermuth in his white mess dress. This is a very interesting album that is named to a significant historical figure. CONDITION: The photos all remain clear and untarnished. There are some blemishes on the covers of the albums but the binding and pages remain strong. Most of the wax paper is intact with no rips or wrinkles. The corners of the pages remain sharp. Overall excellent. JLD Paperwork: Research

The Goodyear Inflatoplane was an inflatable experimental aircraft made by the Goodyear Aircraft Company, a subsidiary of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company. The aircraft was designed for short take offs and landings and was supposed to appeal to the United States Military. The idea was to design an aircraft which could be dropped behind enemy lines and easily assembled by downed airmen so they could escape and evade through the air rather than risking vulnerable, hovering helicopters. Despite seeming like an unconvincing project, several prototypes were built between 1956 and 1959, and testing continued until 1972, when the project was finally cancelled making this aircraft a rare aviation collectible. There were two versions of the Inflatoplane, The GA-466, which was the the two-seater version, and featured more powerful 60 horsepower engine, and this example, which is a GA-468, the single seat version. The aircraft were tested at Goodyear’s facilities near Akron, Ohio, and the military even expressed interest in the concept, adopting their own design with the designations XAO-2-GI, for the GA-466, and XAO-3-GI, for the GA-468. The testing was ceased after a fatal accident that claimed the life of an Army test pilot. Only 12 Goodyear Inflatoplanes were built, but development continued until the project was cancelled in 1973. There are only a few surviving examples of the Goodyear Inflatoplane, most of which reside in museums. CONDITION: The consigner has provided a condition report from the last time the aircraft was assembled and later packed into storage. The inflatoplane is constructed of a thick rubber material that holds air when it is blown up. The rubber fuselage exhibits scattered small cracks which are typical of old rubber. There are a few areas with small holes that have been taped, but does not interfere with the stability of the aircraft. These aircraft were designed to compensate for leaks since the designers took into account possible damage from enemy gunfire. The engine features a built-in air compressor in order to keep the plane inflated in flight. The inflatoplane has not been cleaned since it was found in a barn 15 years ago. The engine does not run but appears to be intact. The propeller is period correct but not the original to this Inflatoplane. All drive wires are intact and the instrument panel is complete with all original instruments. This example is accompanied by several original and reprinted manuals which exhibit blemishes that are typical of old paper. The Inflatoplane is not airworthy and should only be used for display purposes. This example appears to be complete and could be restored or used as a static display in a museum or aviation enthusiast’s collection. Overall good.

In November 2018, Morphy Auctions sold a life ring from the most recognizable Pacific Fleet Battleship, BB-39, the USS Arizona. It was believed at the time, that this was a once-in-a-lifetime artifact related to the day which lived in infamy, the Japanese surprise attack on the US Navy fleet at Pearl Harbor. During the detailed historical research and interviews with museum curators that were conducted prior to the sale, it was determined that the only confirmed life rings from the ship were either unrelated to the attack and dated to the ship’s previous service, or were already in museums. It has been long determined that most of the large-size life rings that were present on the superstructure went down with the ship, or were disposed of after the cleanup efforts and salvage operations. Cursory research showed that the few verified surviving Arizona life rings are of a smaller size and were assigned to the small motor launches moored in between each battleship and Ford Island. It quickly became apparent that artifacts from the sinking of the Arizona are far rarer than those off of the RMS Titanic, which is still visited for the purpose of salvaging artifacts, with literally thousands recovered since the discovery by Dr. Robert Ballard in 1985. In a truly amazing and historical stroke of fate and timing, Morphy Auctions has discovered another fresh to the market and previously unknown life ring which separated from the USS Arizona during the day of the December 7th attack. This past December was the 80th Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack. As time marches forward, the actual living survivors of that fateful day pass away into single digits. At the time of this writing, only two surviving crew members from the Arizona remain alive. The actual tangible artifacts of the attack are just as rare…rusting away in Hawaiian waters or forever remaining tucked away in naval museums and institutions. The ring which we are proud to offer has resided in one family since that fateful Sunday morning in which the United States was dragged into another World War. On Dec 7, 1941 Ernest K. Morita, a resident of Honolulu, and native-born Hawaiian of Japanese descent, reported to work as a civilian contract mechanic at the Pearl Harbor Submarine Base near what is known as the Southeast Loch, across the harbor from Battleship Row. This was literally under the direct path of the first Japanese wave of the attack against the battleships. His work that day involved operating a heavy lift crane with his brother and another work partner. In forensic examination of 1941 images of the submarine base, you can clearly see only one heavy lift crane on the end of one of the submarine piers at this location. According to his own written account, he started his shift at 7am, less than an hour before 183 aircraft of the Imperial Japanese Navy commenced their attack. One can only imagine the fear he was experiencing when he first heard and saw large numbers of aircraft starting to appear in the blue skies of Oahu. As events quickly unfolded, Morita found himself in an unpredicted front row seat across from Battleship Row and Ford Island. In mere minutes, he most likely witnessed the fateful explosion that sent the Arizona into the air and would later drag the wounded vessel down to the once clear shallows of Pearl Harbor which the Japanese attack had clouded with oil and infamy. During and after the attack Morita assisted in the salvage operations and recovery of survivors and the dead using his 1937 Buick as an emergency addition to the Red Cross ambulance service. In a notarized letter obtained from the family, it was noted that Morita transported the wounded in his vehicle from Aiea Navy Landing to the Fort Shafter Hospital located nearby. Geographically, Aiea Landing is located directly across the East Loch from the USS Arizona, and would have most definitely received survivors from the ship, as they struggled to swim ashore there, delivered by the dozens of small craft which were used to pick up the wounded and suffering. It can be reasonably surmised that due to his close physical proximity to where the Arizona was moored, it would put him in a prime position to recover such an artifact. It is most likely where Morita obtained the life ring that day. Historical writings and many recent new discoveries of first-hand accounts recall that it was a monumental effort that many Japanese civilians also took part in.

Rufus B. Burrus is an example of an Army officer with an extensive and successful career who is overlooked in the history books, but is historically significant, especially in association with President Harry S. Truman. Burrus' military career begins in 1918 when he starts out as a student in the Army Training Corps. During his training, he would become acquainted with field artillery, much like his later friend, Harry Truman, who was the commander of the Battery D, 129th Field Artillery during World War I. In 1927, Burrus was serving as a private in Battery A, 443rd Field Artillery. 1 year later Burrus was commissioned as a second lieutenant and throughout the late 1920s and early 1930s, he would serve with the 443rd, and 381st Field Artillery, as well as the 327th Ammo Train. Intertwined with the years of his pre-World War II military service, Burrus practiced law and met the future President when Truman was running for Eastern Judge of Jackson County Court. They quickly became friends, and their relationship grew when Truman appointed Burrus to be assistant county counselor in 1927. During the 1930s, Burrus and Truman also served in the same Army Reserve regiment. When World War II broke out, Burrus was serving as a Captain in the 6th Division and was commander of Battery C, 51st Field Artillery Battalion. Throughout the rest of the war, he served with the Transportation Corps in the North African and Italian theaters in which accompanying paperwork states he is authorized to wear the EAME ribbon with two battle stars. After the war, Burrus became President of the Missouri Bar Association and was promoted to colonel in the Army Reserve. Burrus and Truman's friendship continued to grow in the post-World War II era and Burrus became on of Truman's personal attorneys. According to a newspaper article regarding their friendships that is included with this lot, "Burrus performed several legal services for which he never charged. Truman wrote two or three times asking Burrus for a bill, which Burrus never sent. Truman finally sent a $1000 dollar check. Burrus returned it, and Truman sent it back. Burrus finally accepted it, but never cashed it." The check still exists to this day, as a symbol of their friendship. This lot containing Burrus' memorabilia is quite extensive, and features both uniforms and ephemera. The lot consists of: (A) Burrus' interwar 1930s second lieutenant's uniform that features a 7th Corps patch and artillery collar insignia. The uniform is complete with matching trousers and leather riding boots as well as two Sam Browne belts. (B) Very nice theater made Ike jacket with bullion lieutenant colonel rank insignia and theater made sewn ribbons and field artillery collar insignia. This uniform comes with a high quality wool officer's shirt and black tie. (C) World War II era chocolate officer's tunic with bullion colonel insignia which was most likely worn by Burrus towards the end of the war and into the 1950s when he was promoted to colonel in the reserves. This uniform includes a short sleeve officer's khaki shirt, tie, and 2 fur felt officer hats. (D) Post-World War II Army dress blue uniform including a tunic with appropriate red trim and colonel insignia on the shoulders, trousers, and officer's visor hat. (E) Cold War Army dress green uniform tunic and officer's visor hat exhibiting pinback colonel insignia, field artillery collar insignia, and Burrus' decorations. Most uniform pieces are named to Burrus on tags or written in various areas on the interior of the jackets, trousers, and hats. (F) Wood desk plaque that is named to Burrus. (G) Bag of Burrus's medals neatly kept in plastic envelopes. (H) Binder of ephemera relating to Burrus including newspaper articles, Army documents, hand written notes, and various other papers that Burrus saved as keepsakes from his military service. (H) The book "Harry S. Truman His Life and Times" by Brian Burnes. CONDITION: All uniform pieces have been very well taken care of but exhibit small scattered moth nips. The medals are nicely preserved. Most pieces of ephemera are well preserved but exhibit blemishes typical of old paper including but not limited to yellowing, foxing, creases, small tears, and wear around the edges. Overall very good. This is an excellent archive of a successful Army officer, lawyer, and friend of Harry Truman that would fit nicely into a military collection, or perhaps even the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum. JLD

World War II Purple Heart and Air Medal grouping identified to Staff Sergeant Donald L. Beba. The group consists of Beba's cased Purple Heart with extra ribbon. The Purple Heart is unnumbered but is beautifully script engraved on the reverse. Also included is his unengraved, cased air medal with extra ribbon, ribbon bar with three oak leaf clusters, lapel pin, and Distinguished Unit Citation with oak leaf cluster. There is also a copy of "Helton's Hellcats A Pictorial History of the 493rd Bomb Group" and a book about the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Donald L. Beba was born on September 17, 1924 and resided in Cambria County, Pennsylvania during his youth. He would only complete two years of high school, as he dropped out in order to find a job and support his family, which was not an uncommon thing for young men to do during the pre-war era. Donald moved to Coatesville, Pennsylvania and later enlisted in the US Army Air Corps on April 2, 1943. After his enlistment, he completed his training in flexible gunnery and was assigned to the 861st Bomb Squadron of the 493rd Bomb Group, better known as "Helton's Hellcats". Initially, Donald was assigned as a Nose Turret Gunner in a B-24 Liberator and flew missions against occupied Europe from Felixtowe, England. The squadron's 32nd mission, which was on July 28, 1944, was Donald's first combat mission in the nose of a B-24. Donald flew ten more missions in the nose of a B-24 before the squadron transitioned to B-17G Flying Fortresses. After the transition, Donald became a waist gunner on a B-17, mostly flying on B-17G serial #43-38190, more affectionately named "Sweet Sue". He continued to fly in order to achieve the coveted goal of 35 missions, but his 30th mission would be his last. On December 30, 1944, Sweet Sue and other bombers from the 861st Bomb Squadron departed Felixtowe in order to bomb strategic targets in Kassel. During the start of the mission, the B-17 was climbing through overcast clouds over the English Channel when the No. 1 engine started smoking and exploded in a burst of flames which separated the cowling from the engine. The pilot, First Lieutenant Bernard T. Vaughan, reacted quickly by immediately feathering the engine in hope of extinguishing the fire. During this action, the plane lost between 2000-3000 feet as the pilot attempted to regain control and recover from his vertigo. After stabilizing the B-17, Lt. Vaughan proceeded to carry out an intercom check which revealed that five of the enlisted men, including Beba, had bailed out of the seemingly doomed bomber during the course of events. It is presumed that they had become momentarily panicked when they witnessed the explosion and bailed out because they thought the wing was on fire and the plane was going down. Vaughan piloted the B-17 back to Woodbridge and managed to land the struggling plane on an emergency air strip. It was later discovered that the engine had blown the top cylinder head. Extensive search and rescue efforts were conducted immediately with no avail, as none of the five missing aircrewmen were ever found. Donald and his fellow crew members remain missing to this day, and they are remembered on the Tablets of the Missing at the Cambridge American Cemetery. A sad end to a young life, as Donald was only 20 years old when he died during the war. The medals were cared for by Donald's sister until her passing and she expressed her wishes that Beba's remaining wartime possessions never be split up in order to preserve his memory. CONDITION: The medals are very clean and have been well taken care of, The script engraving presents wonderfully and the engraving is unmolested. The books are also well preserved and appear to be complete exhibiting little blemishes. The group is accompanied by a folder of research from the consigner. Overall excellent.

25-Round Extension Magazine manufactured by Blank Book Co. These magazines were designed and produced with the intention to of replacing the integral 5-round magazine in order to increase the overall firepower of the Springfield Model 1903 bolt action rifles. While there is no evidence directly stating the intended implementation of these magazines, on page 206 of "An Illustrated Guide to the '03 Springfield Service Rifle" by, Bruce N. Canfield, Canfield states that an Ordnance Memo dated March of 1920 2,723 of the Extension Magazines had been delivered to Springfield Armory in 1918. Canfield goes on to state that "The fact that relatively large numbers of the magazines were manufactured strongly suggests that the intention was to issue the items for front line use. Since the Air Service and Cameron-Yaggi rifles were made in quite limited numbers, the large quantity of extension magazines manufactured would not have been needed if utilization was restricted solely to those two quasi-experimental weapons". This example bears an eagle over "X31" inspectors proof on the left sight, with a faint eagle over "X32" inspectors stamp on the right. Magazine is accompanied by its nitre blued sheet metal cover. CONDITION: Magazine body retains the vast majority of its original finish, showing some spots of wear, some marks from storage, as well as areas of oxidation that are mostly present on the right side. Sheet metal cover exhibits areas of wear and thinning that show through to gray and brown patinas. Follower spring is strong. A unique accessory of late World War I U.S. military rifle development.

Originally developed by the OSS in the latter end of World War II, code name "Bigot" was a unique set of components designed to convert a standard Model 1911 semi-automatic pistol to silently fire a weighted dart, with the intention of being utilized during covert operations while behind enemy lines. The conversion consisted of the addition of a breech plug, an extended firing pin rod, as well as a dart that contained a .25 ACP blank round. Once fired, the extended firing pin assembly would strike the .25 ACP round that was housed at the nose of the dart, propelling gas down the length of the body of the dart, thus launching the dart from the pistol. While there is no recorded data about the effectiveness of this design, Ian McCollum of Forgotten Weapons fired a reproduction of the "Bigot" dart with poor overall results. This example is of a later production, with the blueprint being marked "EXOTIC WEAPONS INK", "THIRD DESIGN PROTOTYPE", as well as "DRAWN BY LANGTON", and is dated "MAY 20, 1968". The blueprint exhibits overall design details, featuring measurements and general notes of the darts construction, as well as designating this design as "DARTO". Accompanying the blueprint is an additional printed copy of the original blueprint, dart, recoil spring guide rod, inert .25 ACP round, as well as two thread-on barrel bushings. 1 barrel bushing appears to be from another dart design, with the hole being too small to accommodate the rear of the dart. Extended firing pin rod and breech plug are not present. CONDITION: Dart shows rough machining marks around the tip, which is proper for a prototype design, with metal components being in-the-white and exhibiting areas of age related discoloration overall. Barrel bushing shows some spots of cleaned oxidation. Blueprint is very good, showing a few creases overall, a couple very small holes in the center crease from age, as well as some age related discoloration overall. Blueprint copy shows some minor tears, but is otherwise fine. A unique 1911 conversion, that paired with its original blueprint, would make for a fine display and conversation piece. MLW

World War II 357th Infantry Regiment KIA Purple Heart grouping of Private First Class William H. Gerbauer. The grouping consists of Gerbauer's Purple Heart, medal certificate, coffin case, and photo. His memorabilia is nicely framed in a wood case. The Purple Heart exhibits period correct government style engraving and is mounted in the frame so it hangs just above Gerbauer in the photo. There is also a photo of his grave where he rests in the Luxembourg American Cemetery. Gerbauer was born on August 8, 1922 and entered active service on February 3, 1943. He was assigned to the 357th Infantry Regiment of the 90th Infantry Division and went ashore with the Division on June 8, 1944, D-Day+2, at the beaches of Normandy. The unit was active through the Rhineland Campaign and the Battle of the Bulge, earning their nickname "The Tough 'Ombres". On 19 February, the men of the 90th Division smashed through Siegfried Line and proceeded to advance to the Prüm River. Their next objective was to cross the Moselle River in order to take the city of Mainz. It was during this push that Gerbauer was killed. He was initially declared as missing in action, but this was later changed to killed in action, probably because it took some time for accurate information to be recorded. It was revealed that Gerbauer was killed on March 15, 1945 around the city of Udenhausen, Germany, and his cause of death is listed as SW head (Severe Wound, head). The grouping is accompanied by a folder of research mostly relating to the recovery and relocation of Gerbauer's remains. There are burial reports and letters that were written to his family asking if they want his body to remain overseas or be returned home for burial. The family opted to have him buried in Europe next to the men of his unit who were also killed in action. All of the supporting documents are modern scans, but complete the story. CONDITION: The medal is clean and the engraving remains bold. The certificate is nicely famed and exhibits very light blemishes and the coffin case exhibits scattered scuffs. The group is nicely framed and ready to be displayed. Overall very good. JLD Paperwork: Consigner Notes and Research

World War II 411th Infantry Regiment WIA Purple Heart, Silver Star, and ephemera grouping of Technician Fifth Grade Winford P. Barnum. The grouping consists of Barnum's Purple Heart and Silver Star medals. Both medals include an extra ribbon, ribbon bar, lapel pin, and are contained in their original coffin cases. The reverse of both medals are pantograph stamped. Pantograph stamped medals are a rare impressing style that was used for about two months in July-August 1945. This style is encountered on non-posthumous medals as the pantograph machines were available in some demobilization stations where soldiers could impress their medals before being discharged. The group also includes one of Barnum's dog tags, as well as a nice 9 - 1/2" x 7 - 1/2" frame containing Barnum's Good Conduct Medal, his cloth rank and unit insignia, Combat Infantry Badge, Combat Medic Badge, and photo of Barnum standing on the back of a US Army ambulance. There are also two large photos of combat medics in action as well as two small photos, one of the Barnum family and the other with Army tents and vehicles. Interestingly, there are four golf clubs included from Barnum's post war golf club business. Finally, a reprint of the book "Report After Action" and a folder of research from the consigner is included with the group. Winford P. Barnum was born on September 16th, 1917 in Woodland, Michigan and enlisted in the US Army on February 14, 1943 at Fort Sheridan Illinois. He was assigned to the 411th Infantry Regiment of the 103rd Infantry Division as a medic. The 103rd trained for two years before it was sent overseas and arrived in France during the Fall of 1944. The Division was quickly moved to the front lines where it began its short, but significant combat chronicle. The men of the 103rd crossed several bridges and captured even more towns, all while encountering heavy resistance along the way. In January 1945, General Anthony "Nuts" McAuliffe was given command of the 103rd and held this position until July 1945. Barnum, known to other men in his unit as Barney, was awarded the Silver Star on July 21, 1945 by the command of General McAuliffe, for his actions on March 15, 1945, which he is credited for saving the lives of several wounded soldiers. His original Silver Star citation is included with the group and reads "For Gallantry in action. On 15 March 1945 near Muhlhausen, France during an advance through machine gun, mortar and artillery fire, Technician Barnum, aid man, ran 40 yards through hostile fire to a seriously wounded man and administered aid. Observing four more casualties 40 yards to his front, he crawled through the hostile fire and administered aid. Technician Barnum's actions reflected the highest traditions of military service." After the war, Barnum was discharged from the Army and he settled in California where he went on to own and operate a golf course in Claremont California. He also manufactured golf cubs known as "Barney Barnum Putters". Four of his original putters are included with the auction and they are labeled El Ranchero, Dutch Boy, Old Sam, and Green Sam. This is a nice grouping from a decorated combat medic that sheds light on his wartime service as well as his civilian life. CONDITION: The pantograph stampings are faint but present, as is typical with most pantograph stamped medals. The cases are clean and exhibit little blemishes. The photos and paper are well preserved with little wear. The golf clubs exhibit wear from use. All of the military memorabilia is contained in a wood display case and is ready to be displayed. Overall excellent. JLD Paperwork: Photos, Research, Silver Star Citation, Golf Clubs

World War II unengraved and unnumbered Purple Heart Medal with ribbon bar, lapel pin, Good Conduct Medal, and marksman badge contained in a Purple Heart Coffin case. The medals are attributed to William G. Yates, who was a member of the 38th Infantry Regiment's Antitank Company. The group includes Yates' period discharge paperwork as well as a few scans, and a letter that was written by his company commander, Lt. Joe E. Steakley. Yates most likely requested that Steakley draft this letter so he would be eligible for more veteran benefits after his records were destroyed at the National Personnel Records Center fire on July 12, 1973. Mr. Yates was born on November 9, 1915 and was entered into active service on February 2, 1942. The story of how Mr. Yates earned his Purple Heart could be made into a film and is recounted in Steakley's letter. "William Yates served in Antitank Company, 38th Infantry, as a top-rate soldier from the D-Day +1 landing at Omaha Beach until his being wounded and captured on the night of April 2, 1945. He had come through the fierce fighting at the Normandy landing and subsequent breakout through highly fortified German concrete fortresses. he fought at Brest, France, with a special task force to capture the German submarine facilities and garrison. He fought through the Battle of the Bulge, and he participated in the crossing of the Remagen bridgehead." On the night of April 2, 1945 Yates and his company were nearly overrun by the Waffen SS, which resulted in Lt. Steakley calling in close artillery fire which he describes as a "last-ditch action was taken out of desperation, when I saw very little hope for survival." He recounts "The artillery began coming in on our position in extremely heavy salvos. The Krauts panicked and began a very disorderly retreat. As first daylight appeared, we had the distinct advantage. Many of our soldiers fired so many rounds that they literally melted the barrels of their own rifles and carbines. I melted down two carbines and one pistol until they jammed." Steakley goes on to mention after the battle they had counted at least 225 dead German SS soldiers and reveals the fate of Yates and his squad. "During the fighting on Easter night, Soldier William Yates, along with five other Antitankers were defending their outpost at the railroad section in Bonenburg. They were hit with large caliber fire from one of the Nazi tanks or armored weapons carriers. All of them were wounded, including Soldier William Yates, very seriously." Althought this Purple Heart is unengraved, it comes with incredible history to a soldier who was wounded and captured during World War II. CONDITON: The medal and case exhibit typical blemishes from handling wear, and the paperwork exhibits small tears and creases that are typical of old paper. Overall good.

World War II 419th Field Artillery Battalion KIA Purple Heart and Bronze Star grouping of Private First Class James W. Bruce. The group consists of Bruce's government engraved Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medals. Both medals have an extra ribbon, ribbon bar, lapel pins, coffin cases, and are contained in their original white shipping boxes. The Purple Heart is also complete with the medal certificate and Presidential Accolade that are contained in the original mailing tube that is addressed to Bruce's father. The group is accompanied by a small folder of research that was conducted by the consigner. James Bruce was born in Orange, Florida during the year 1921. He enlisted in the arm on November 8, 1942 and was later assigned to the 419th Field Artillery Battalion of the 10th Armored Division. Bruce and the men of the 10th Armored Division entered France through the port of Cherbourg, on September 23, 1944 and trained for about a month before entering combat with the Third Army. The 10th Armored Division quickly established itself as an effective fighting force as they participated in the capture of Metz, moved to the Siegfried Line, and led the Third Army into Germany on November 19, 1944. The unit also distinguished itself during the Battle of the Bulge and afterwards crossed the Saar River capturing many towns and bridgeheads. On February 27, 1945 Bruce was awarded the Bronze Star for distiguising himself under fire. The original citation that is included with the group reads "Private First Class Bruce, drive, voluntarily assisted in the repair and evacuation of a 1/4 ton truck under a constant barrage from enemy artillery and mortar fire. By April 1945, the the unit was rapidly advancing south through Germany. Bruce was killed in action on April 2, 1945 during these advancements. He was killed south of Gaiberg when the unit was in position at an area known as Bargan. This was just over a month after he was awarded his bronze star. He was 24 years old. CONDITION: The medals both remain clean is clean and their engravings remain bold. The coffin cases both exhibit little wear and have most likely been stored in their shipping boxes since they were received by Bruce's family. The certificate and accolade are both nicely preserved with typical blemishes as they probably spent most of their existence in the mailing tube. The Bronze Star citation is ripped around the edges. Even the mailing tube is nicely preserved as it appears as though it was carefully opened by Bruce's father and then stored with other family heirlooms. This is a very nice complete KIA medal grouping that needs to be respected in a serious collection. Overall very good. JLD Paperwork: Consigner Notes

A period oil painting of Adolf Hitler signed by known artist "Paul Segieth". The painting was executed with oil paint over a canvas. The artist gave much attention to detail as he captured the features of Adolf Hitler, as well as Hitler's Iron Cross, tie eagle, and party armband. Light brush strokes can be seen in areas when viewed at certain angles. The upper right corner of the panting is signed by the artist, "Paul Segieth", and the upper right corner with the date "1938". The painting has been reframed in a brown stained oak frame. A small hole is observed on the lower trim of the frame. The painting is accompanied by a VHS tape and flash drive that contains a February 20, 1993 interview of the veteran who claimed to have captured this painting during the end of World War II. The veteran is identified by the consigner as Mr. Mahan, who states in the interview that he was a member of the 45th Infantry Division and took this painting from the walls of Hitler's apartment in Munich. According to Mr. Mahan, he was placed in Prinzregentenplatz 16 with other members of his unit until their regiment's colonel took over the premises. During his brief stay in the apartment, he removed the painting from its original frame and hit it in his sleeping bag. He brought all of his souvenirs home with him after the war and had the painting reframed. The 45th Infantry Division was a very decorated unit that acquired an extensive combat record. The division's combat chronicle began when the men of the 45th landed in North Africa on June 22 1943. They fought their way up through Italy and participated in the fighting during campaigns in Sicily, Salerno, Anzio, France, and Germany. The division captured Munich toward the end of the war in 1945, occupying the city until V-E Day and the surrender of Germany on May 8, 1945. Throughout the month of May and into June, the men of the 45th Division occupied Munich and set up collection points and camps for the overwhelming numbers of surrendering German soldiers. It was common practice for American soldiers to participate in looting and souvenir hunting during the war. Judging by the plethora of war trophies shown in the video, Mr. Mahan was a very skilled souvenir hunter. CONDITION: Excellent. JLD/DW Paperwork: VHS Tape and Flashdrive with Interview

Craig's bomber failed to return from the mission, along with one other B-17, however the latter crew was rescued. According to Missing Air Crew Report 15359: "Departed on mission 4L to attack Rabaul, at 0848 from 7-Mile Drome near Port Moresby to attack ships in Simpson Harbor. Last seen going into clouds, closely pursued by four to five Japanese fighters [Ki-43-I Oscars from the 11th Hiko Sentai]. The left outboard engine was observed to be smoking." The fate of the crew remains unknown. Major Bleasdale and co-pilot Captain Benton Daniel managed to bailed out and landed in the jungle to the north of Tol. Both were captured by the Imperial Japanese Navy and transported to Rabaul where they became Prisoners Of War. While in captivity, both of the men were recorded to have been interrogated during February-March 1943. The two prisoners are mentioned in documents supposedly signed by Bleasdale that were shown to other American prisoners. The two men were recorded in several other locations by several other American Prisoners and their names even appear in some documents. However despite these encounters, they were never officially reported as POWS and they both disappear from records in 1943. Their fates are still unknown and like Craig and the rest of the crew, these men remain missing to this day. Craig was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and Silver Star. The wreckage of B-17F San Antonio Rose has never been located. The medals are accompanied by a small folder of information from the consigner. CONDITION: The medals are both very clean and have been well looked after. The ribbons and lapel pins are in very good condition. Coffin cases exhibit little wear. Overall excellent.

He then served as a translator and scout for the US military.

His affidavit was notarized by the Notary Public of Los Angeles County, CA on February 11, 1975.
