There are a few items for sale on ebay that are named to a 1st Ranger Bn vet. The most odd thing here is the sleeve of an ike jacket that has been cut off. Back in 2014, this was a complete jacket posted on another forum for review . Seems a bit fishy to me. Just be heads up if you are bidding on these...

 

The jacket from 2014:

The sleeve of this jacket ONLY now on eBay:

Agree, that is very odd and great detective work!

In COL Blacks, The Ranger Force, there is no Nazar Kalashian listed as serving in 1st, 3rd or 4th Bns.

Even the first photo of the complete Ike has some glaring errors in that the brass is set up Korea era style, the PUC is in the wrong place, and why would the each end of the scroll be cut off as a Vet would be very proud of his association with the unit.

Why would someone do something like that?

 

Did anyone determine if he is on a 34th ID roster?

 

It has all the appearances of being a good group especially if the info on war relics is correct.

If it was real, why in the hell would someone cut it up?

Look,at the tab on the waistband of the jacket, it is square, isnt that indicative of 1946 or later production...

Unless it was damaged after it was shown in 2014 on the War Relics Forum there is no valid reason that I can think of for cutting off the sleeve.The item is worth more intact than it is cut up.
If it is a postwar made jacket perhaps someone may have removed the sleeve so that no one could tell what year it was made?

Why would the jacket being post war matter that much though? Just men's he left the army after 1946

That's true,but the only reason I can think of for removing the sleeve(barring the possibility of damage that I mentioned earlier) is an attempt to disassociate the rest of the coat from the patches on the sleeve for whatever reason.

From my foxhole, I think I’d want it damaged vs cut up. I see zero value in the sleeve section and am surprised it has bids.

Of course...we all know the three items belong together and the seller is splitting them up. Greed vs love of history.

How do you know they are greedy?

 

There are a million reasons why the group got split up.

 

I don't like to see groups broken just as much as anyone but sometimes that's the way it goes.

 

My advice to anyone is to not be judgemental especially when you don't know the circustances.

 

It's OK to say you don't like it but don't judge.

What are the chances these items are not what the seller says they are?

Is the seller a member of the Forum?I ask because it may be easier to communicate here than on eBay.

Not that I'm aware of 

 

I do know him but not going to post his name here.

 

Hes easily contacted through his sales platform on ebay.Have known him to be straight forward and honest in any and all dealing I have had with him over the years.

 

If there are questions he may have the answers.
