I think you should come clean about the fact that the awards you now have were from the Neal O'Connor collection.

Again, Neal had original awards, but the displays were "put together", as he was...

If this is the grouping of Josef Jacobs, one must consider that this is in fact the previous collection of Neal O'Connor. Sadly, Mr. O'Connor was very open to say that most of the medals were...

Indeed-

The oaks goblet I sold was absurd. I would have offers of $3-$4K for a 835 silver oaks goblet.

Wowser- you did hit the goldmine.

Did you get all this from an estate sale? I saw no such items on all the auction sites. It's good to have connections.

PLM groupings often sit for a while on...

Indeed- very cool.

Any idea who the recipient of the PLM was? You did say "groupings", so I assume there are other PLMs? Any personal items or documents?

Thanks for posting such finds. Always...
