Five posts before reading any messages, in order to discourage Spammers.
What an excellent idea!
I knew this Forum had its share of wits about it...
Mostly, I research; which is how I came across APTM in the beginning.
Noticing the high level of intelligent conversation was a relief, compared to other sites.
Also, it's the reason I posted regarding PFC Carey and his Dog Tag (just so anyone would know they/it exists).
Well, I'll step aside so brighter minds have more room...
Regards, SUOMI.

Everyone interested at any level of study is welcomed to post and participate here. You do not need to "step aside" for brighter minds. You are a welcomed participant.

Thank you for being nice & hospitable!
I've an old CCCP silver coin necklace around here someplace; perhaps I'll dig it out.
If my memory is correct, there's 7-9 coins, but the earliest was minted 1922, I think.
Much to late for the Revolution, but in a time of want/need, someone had enough $$ to use silver as adornment.
With respect, SUOMI.

Silver, unlike gold, was pretty cheap at that time. Such necklaces, crosses and other silver jewelry even weren't usually taken by train and street robbers.

Thank you, Mike.
Perhaps that's the reason this necklace survived all original.
With respect, SUOMI.

Mr. Bear,
As you can see, I'm not an everyday user of this fantastic site.
However, as you seem educated on Co.E.339th IR, & PFC Carey,
I'm quite willing to post pics of his Dog-Tag, so all may look.
I check here now & then.
Perhaps, I'll find an answer...

PS- My whole family are Finns; scarce empathy towards Russia (especially after the Winter War) is ingrained in us from birth.
