The description listed is this:
This is a SUPER RARE pair of shoulder boards slides ranks epaulettes for the United States Air Force five 5-stars grade of GENERAL OF THE AIR FORCE. This was an experimental prototype made during the 1990s after General Merill McPeak was Chief of Staff of the USAF and who authorized a complete re-design of all US Air Force uniforms and insignia which was not well received. This pair was made to test the return to more traditional insignia designs after General McPeak left office. This pair has the US National Arms in GOLD. I was involved in the study for redesign of insignia, and these ranks were part of it. A STUNNING addition to any collection of generals ranks and an extraordinarily rare set of ranks!
Just thought it was interesting. I've seen all the other ranks from Lt. Col. Aldebol's book, AAF and USAF Decorations, Medals, Ribbons, Badges and Insignia, but this one isn't listed.
Anyone else seen this?
A reference non the less.
