This item and many of the other items I have listed come from an archive of Militaria acquired by my mother several years ago. She has done extensive research into these items (although, please bear in mind she is not a professional or military historian) and any and all information provided about these items is done in good faith. Most of these items relate in some way to Oscar W. Koch whose long military career including becoming a Brigadier General in the US Army and serving as the Third Army Intelligence Officer under George S. Patton during WWII. All items are original to the period specified. Most items are personally tied to Koch while others are period militaria with less direct connection. Some items are more historical collectibles with less military relevance.
