What I sent him as a question was:
That's my picture in the photo you are showing. I posted it at my site 6thofthe31st.com. in the arty photo section. I hope you aren't suggesting that this compass is the one I'm holding in my hand in the photo. It surely isn't as you well know. How did you get the photo? Did you take it from my site? Maybe a google search for something that would suite your purpose?
What he sent back was:
in no way shape or form am i suggesting that this compass is the one in the photo. It is just showing a GI with a compass. i did find the photo on the internet in the public domain. if you have a copywright on the photo please attach a copy and i will be more then happy to remove it.I am also a vietnam vet sgt. 3rd combat support group bien hoa ab rvn 68-69
I sent him back a copy of the original showing that there is a date on it that shows the photo was printed before his compass was made. However, on the ebay it is not as obvious that there is a date.
What do you think? Is this guy gilding the lily , with my photo, to make his sale?
