Hey Robert,
Now that's something of military history that's up for grabs! Will be interesting to see what the final sale price of the cup went for. It's authenticity should 1st be checked out as copies and frauds these days can cost you! It's past history as to who, where & how became an antique dealer's item should be looked into as well. With the amount of money the Regiment's assoc. I'm surprised they haven't jumped at this too!

I know one person who made an offer and it was turned down. It wasn't me. I wouldn't have offered as much as he did if I had made an offer. Value of anything is only what one person will pay and what the owner will accept. Stay tuned for more of this story... or not....depending on if I get more information or if anybody else does and posts it.

I have no idea if the Association has any serious interest in it or not or if they will make an offer for it.

The Regiment Association didn't want it. The 4/31st didn't answer the ladies email. It is now on the open market. So much for Regiment sentiment for the punch bowl stuff. :lol:

The cup just sold on ebay for $178.50 + shipping, which was $100 more than my bid. She told me in an
email that since the reproduction cups were $165, this cup should be worth "some multiples of that amount."
Well, it did sell for $13.50 more than a repro............... :mrgreen:
I'm sure she is disappointed, but I got a very greedy feeling from her emails....whatever. Case closed.

I'd say it wasn't anybody connected to the 31st Regiment who bought it judging by his past bid win history.

The winner buys a lot of SammeLn & Seltenes, which is German for Toys and Hobbies... according to the translation thing.

$165.78 is what it sold for this time plus $10 Chinese mail. The speculator lost money. Wonder what it'll bring next time?

A few more auction losses like that and I will be able to afford it........... :mrgreen:

And it has also been known to happen that the seller has a friend bid at the beginning of the auction
the amount that the seller needs. Then if it doesn't reach that amount, the seller is only out the auction
fee and doesn't lose a lot of money and the friend never really pays for it....... :roll:
The winning bidder made the highest bid near the beginning of the auction....... 8)

And the story continues.

John Bear, my research contact, gave me some more information. His interest is in his uncle who died imprisoned by the Japanese after the fall of Bataan. By the way, he recently got his uncle's unawarded medals issued and is working on getting his CIB. I made some suggestions and gave him emails to some of the Association officers who could maybe put him in touch with any remaining WWII vets still living who my remember his uncle..


Ashby went to West Point. He was in the army at the time of the Korean war. He is listed as a "casualty" in March of 1950. The Korean War hadn't started just yet. At that time the 31st was in occupied Japan and not in any combat. Obviously whatever the reason for being on the list it didn't kill him. He lived well into the 21st Century before his death.

So... the cup is very much attached to a real officer. When it was made is anybodies guess.

His resting place.
