The consignor purchased this 1938 pattern EM's Service Tunic from the capturing vet's estate along with the EM/NCO Visor Cap HC153 and the M40 Single Decal Helmet HC156 listed on my Headgear page.
I considered listing all 3 articles together since they belonged to the same Luft vet, but I decided to list them separately knowing few collectors can afford the entire grouping.
Native American jewelry refers to items of personal adornment, whether for personal use, sale or as art; examples of which might include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings and pins, as well as ketohs, wampum, and labrets, made by one of the Indigenous peoples of the United States.
Native American jewelry normally reflects the cultural diversity and history of its makers, but tribal groups have often borrowed and copied designs and methods from other, neighboring tribes or nations with which they had trade, and this practice continues today.

Reassembled ones, well done, if you can find one of these, have been priced around 0, at least in my experience. All came from a small accumulation of wrappers I saved over the past 46 years in the militaria business. Inside, it once held five paper wrapped packets of ten US ovals, each in the same heavy paper as used for the outer wrap. 17 x 20”, dark tan, and appears to be waxed or oiled, giving it a somewhat shiny surface. Face has eagle National emblem which about covers the face. It also seems like it has some age, but really have no idea how old it is. Dale had this tucked away in his supply of antique/vintage gun related material. There are two loops on front, one either side of the pouch, for an individual shell.
We have an offer for you, which we believe you can’t refuse. I can personally guarantee this to be original and genuine, as I opened it many, many years ago and one by one, sold the plates. Sold for civilian wear, as a showy display of support for the military and the War with Spain. For photography purposes, I put a piece of cardboard inside the pouch, otherwise it's a bit flat on its own.
About 40 years ago, I had the opportunity to buy a small lot of original Cavalry Carbine Slings which came from Bannermans, from which the brass buckle and brass tip had been cut off for scrap. Dale wrote some time back "I tried the clips for both the standard rifles, the M1 and M1903 and the belt accommodates both equally. Matched pair, one in gold finish and one in chrome or nickel plate finish. Identical insignia on each plate - spread eagle, shield, arrows, olive branch, etc. For some custom parade unit, exhibition band, or similar showy outfit. Obviously it shows a number of folds, but quite good, and a unique and rare curiosity from the Civil War. Actually a regulation pattern of 1851 officer's belt plate which saw long service thereafter. Nice sturdy shape; stitching and rivets appear intact, although there is some verdigris around the rivets.
Native American tribes continue to develop distinct aesthetics rooted in their personal artistic visions and cultural traditions.
Artists may create jewelry for adornment, ceremonies, and display, or for sale or trade.
