Belleauwood, I must say your collection is amazing. And I am really enjoying seeing all these new items. Is the EGA hallmarked in anyway. I presume it is a pinback with "c" clip. Both EGA and O/S cover are pristine, does the cover have the name inside, is the sweatband in leather or cloth? Thank you for sharing with us. s/f Darrell

Hi Dennis,

I remember when this group sold. I didn't need the medals, I just wanted the EGA's! Maybe you can share the rest of the stuff with us..As I remember it was all top notch.

S/F,

Brian

Brian, I'll get some pics done after a bit. I didn't do well on the aviator and my wife thinks I've forsaken her for the Forum. This one had no medals per say. The collar ornaments were theater made cast pieces. I broke one (damn) taking it off to inspect. Dennis
