WWII grouping from Private First Class (Pfc.) Alger C. Bascom that I bought on Ebay. This WW2 grouping was purchased at a house auction in Harrison, Ohio, US. All items in this nice grouping show normal wear and use for age except his Honorable Discharge paper, that's a post wartime copy (I think).
