Found a couple of sets of these at a garage sale. Wondering when they would have been worn. I'm thinking WW2 USAAF but could be way off wack!  Came in a bag with these still sealed ribbon star & 10 year devices. Does anyone collect the like or are they just too common?

 

Thanks!

Sue

I'd say the leather rank could be WW2. By Korea (and after), leather flight jackets were usually worn with a chest nametag (wings over name, rank, branch).

Leather officer rank like those shown, were sometimes worn on flight suits at least from the 1960's in the USAF.

Not exactly the same but very close in design to the rank on my 50's flight jacket.
