Customer Question
Hi Pearl...I have a...

Hi Pearl...I have a WW1 document...measuers approx. 13"x25" paper. Heading reads Ambulance Co. No. 1...2nd Div. A.P.O. 710...A.E.F....Roster...1st. LT. M.C. Oliver E. Vanalyea...Commanding Officer. The document lists the Names and address (of some) and all of therir home towns...listed in groups by job tytles and rank. Then it goes on to list the names by...Date Of Casualties...Slightly Wounded...Killed In Action...Awarded Croix DE Guerre (what is this I wonder). The only dates on the document are referenced by some names dating form June 7, 1918 to November 11, 1918. My Grandfather's name is ***** *****(under Privates-He servived). Then on the bottom it reads: "That the years to come may be happy for all members of the SECOND DIVISION...I am proud of you all".I am looking for some general information on the document and an approxament value. Thank You in advance. *** ******...********, Ohio.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The paper document is not in the best of shape...staining and "small" tears on the edjes and corners...but is exteramly ledgeable for it's age....

Hello,

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to see clear, in-focus images of the document.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

Hi Nora...Please be advised...I was never able to send photo's using my PC...The photo's I hope you will receive were taken by Kevin L. Bradford using his iPhone...these were sent to (*****@******.*** For Nora/Antiques)...and I did receive conformation they were received. Assuming you received the photo's at some time...please observe the word "Pershing" in the lower right hand corner of the document...there is no signature of any kind included...also notice the "German" text in the lower left hand corner...these two items I failed to note in my original explanation. I hope this information was received and is helpful. Please advise the status of my inquiry when possible. Thank You again. Tim Johns.

I have been collecting and selling museum displays from
I have been collecting and selling museum displays from items I've happened across since 1975, while mostly in the service. My shroud of turin was one of 15 made by the sturp team and I sold it along with Items collected in the Middle East as The last week of Jesus to the Holyland Experience in Orlando, Fl. I keep the others for my house in Dallas. Now i'm downsizing and still have most in specially built crates that I keep in Climate controlled environment. I have a a refurbished "Our Lady of Guadalupe" made by the Team allowed to photograph it during the restoration in 1963 in which the Church allowed the Tilman to be viewed with the protective glass removed. In addition I have a full sized "Copper Scroll" scribed inscribed in the various languages that Is mounted on a felt backed display, the only one that I know of from Amman Jordan where the original is located. The Gutenberg Bible is an exact replica of the UT Austin with special Plexiglas's Bobble top. The Bible is a facsimile of one in France that was a copper box type and circa 1959-60, placed in a NYC warehouse until I was able to acquire it in 2012. The final item is a metal set of window type frames in which I placed the most divervse and uninique set of one page examples that show the different materials the uses. The gray backing can be added or removed as the frames contain the Plexiglas documents from Israel and can be put on easels included, sat on a alter or hung. I have them as photos on my face book page. Do you or anyone you know appraise Museum Items such as these? … read more
