I am listing some items that I cannot really display, and I am beginning to list these pieces at an extremely reasonable buy it now price since I have had them for a quite a time and I really do not remember what I paid for them. I am hoping someone will appreciate and display it more than being stored or in a closet or a case. I will be listing uniforms, unit histories, flight equipment, B-17 and B-24 aircraft equipment, and other U.S. WW2 army AAF and Navy items. In addition, I will also be listing in the future RAF, RAAF, RCAF and other Army Air Force items. Please take a look at my other auctions as some of these items are quite uncommon and would benefit a collection greatly. Thank you so much for looking and please bid with confidence as I take all of my transactions seriously and will go out of my way to assure customer satisfaction. Please see my feedback, I pride myself on the items and customer service I provide.

Up for auction is a very nice example of a WW2 enlisted service dress jacket belonging to an Aircrew member of the Airborne Troop Carrier which given the 9th patch on the right sleeve was most likely in a Troop Carrier Squadron in the 9th AAF. The jacket is a size 37L, and has Sgt rank on both sleeves. In addition it has a very nice pair of clutchback sterling marked Aircrew wings present on the tunic. The left shoulder features a very nice example of an US made embroidered Airborne Troop Carrier patch. On the right sleeve, a very pretty felt English Made 9th AAF patch is present. The uniform has all of the enlisted collar insignia, both the US and Air Corps Disks. It also has overseas hash marks on the bottom of the left sleeve. The jacket is in nice shape, and does not show much wear. I do not think t are any moth nips present. This is a very nice original tunic with a great deal going on, and I think it will make a welcome addition to anyone's collection. I have placed a modest buy it now price since I cannot really remember what I paid for it. I have taken many detailed photos. Thanks again, and please take a look at the pictures as well as my other WWII aviation related auctions.

Please take a look at all of the photos I took many photos. Thank you so much for the interest.
