That is a very cool find, I hope you can find someone to return it to or maybe donate to a local WWI museum or VFW

Army companies just use letter designations, so its more likely Company L 1st platoon.

Just another quick update. I had custom mats cut for them and framed them, pics are in the original post on page 1. Came out pretty well.

Wow!! That display looks great! I have to say, you set the bar pretty high for "coolness" factor for digs this year....

I agree, what a fun ride this find/post has been. Coins are fun, but when you find something personalized and can actually find who owned them, that's even better IMO. Keep up the good work, congrats!
