Navy Captain's Uniforms

The first one is dated may 5, 1944. No name but has an excellent ribbon rack. I also photographed some marks in the pants that might lead to an ID.

That captain's jacket with the sewn on ribbon rack is very, very nice.
Thanks for posting your comment.
Of note is the 1st Nicaraguan Campaign Medal, Mexican Service medal and Legion of Merit Medal.
He served in WW1 and 2.
Sure wish this jacket could talk.

Nice Jacket and it's good to see the name in the second jacket; looks like a good research project.
Thanks for the comments.
Baum is an easy research project. There is a ton of info on the internet about him.

That first jacket sure did belong to an "old salt" for sure. Very nice pick up and a great combination of ribbons on the custom rack! Great finds...... :thumbsup:
I must admit that I had help from another forum member on the purchase of this jacket. I almost passed it up because of cash flow but my friend insisted it was worth far more than the asking price. I love Ramen noodles.
