  13. I looked pretty close with a loop and couldn't see a hole ore maybe where one might have been, but, and this may be stretching it, if he was an early 1946-47 bear when they restarted production, maybe...
  14. Looking at the name on the tag a bit closer, could it be "Boyle" ? Thought? I've done a lot of looking at pictures and references and I'm pretty sure he is a Stieff and comparing his construction to...
  15. Thanks for the info Manikin! He's a nice one, the tag is in the arm seam, hmmm. I look forward to hearing if there is any mention of the name "Doyle" in your book.

  29. I do have his medals, less the silver star but I do have a reissue certificate for it detailing what he did to earn it, really amazing what he did to turn the tide on the engagement around the regimen...
  30. Thanks Scott, I acquired it indirectly from the vets family thru a friend who purchased it from them here locally, The Lt was born and raised in my area and lived here most of his life so it makes it ...

  39. Come to think of it , his feet and paws look like worn felt, ya know how it looks when it's worn down, if ya know what I mean.
  40. Thanks Manikin! He is a neat little guy. His feet and paws are more of a cloth like cotton material, he does feel like straw filled.

  42. Thanks Manikin :). He's one of my wife's favorites.
