Here is a nice 4 pocket coat, named to a crew NCO. Has nice Airborne Troop Carrier Patch, felt 9th AAF patch, bullion overseas stripes, screwback AAF collar brass, and a sterling marked crewman's wing. The ribbon bar is clutchback, and has the newer type clutches on it (not the flat ones). One clutch on the wing is flat, the other is not, and one clutch is missing from the US collar disc. A real solid display piece!

$140 plus shipping, US Sales only.

UPDATE: In talking with a fellow, and very gracious forum member, I found that the jacket is named to "Jenco" in it. The member did some digging and turned up the following:

Technical Sergeant Edward Robert Jenco; born 8 October 1922; inducted 15 October 1940 from Indiana; ASN 15059916. 304th Troop Carrier Squadron, 442nd Troop Carrier Group, 9th AAF.

Checking his records on ancestry, he died on 20 Nov. 2002 and has a gravestone marked as Technical Sergeant Army Air Forces. He is buried at Oak Hill Memorial Park, in Escondido, CA.


There is nothing to positively match the Jenco jacket to this information, but I feel pretty good about it since it is not a very common name, and the patches match the data. I was selling this item because I could not ID it, but have decided to keep it for sale as it is not fair to take down when more information is presented to me.
