Found in a local antique store a US army officer's green trench coat with removable wool liner (dated Jan 1944) with an American Flag bullion "American Mission" in English and Russian

Any have more info on these? Possible value?

Mike

Pretty.sure referring to what some call the first version of the patch but that ID is not actually accurate and relates to another organization that is believed to be concerned with missing airmen and captives in Russian territories. It is a rare patch and has been discussed before. It consists of American flag with writing in English and Russian on the border. Believe one of our moderates the late Garth Thompson started the post
