  1. Thanks 29 Navy, Allen H, and Manayunkman for all of your help in this. I went on Ancestry and did a search for the veteran and found that he died in 1998, not 1989 as I was told by his relative. The son-in-law is getting on too, so no harm...heck so am I. With that later date of passing At The Front and WWII Impressions, or SM Wholesale may have been the maker of the jacket. Again, thank you gentlemen for your assistance, especially Manyunkman for posting the photos of the jacket. Larry
  2. No names, however the lot belongs to the son-in-law of the man who owned them, a veteran of the 13th AB in WWII. He went to France and returned to the US with his Division. The jacket is in near new condition, without any written name or official tag visible. Likewise the boots are also unnamed.
  3. Thanks for responding...my bad, I do have photos of the jacket, but am a dunce it seems when trying to post the photos here. If you like, I would be happy to send them to you via email. Best Larry
  4. Greetings All Recently a gentleman sent us a grouping of items which belonged to his Father In Law, who served with the 13th ABN Division during WWII. Included in the lot was a Jump Jacket and set of Jump Boots. To my eye, the jacket appears to be perhaps a post war reproduction, certainly much of the insignia is postwar, added by the veteran for wear at veteran reunions and parades. I cannot find any markings or tags on the jacket, and overall the condition is near new. The zipper pull is brass and is marked CONMAR. The boots appear to be original, they are unmarked save for the U.S. ARMY on the bottom of the soles and what appears to be a MADE IN USA inkstamp (very blurred) on the inside of the leather tongue. Accompanying the items was a copy of a magazine article which appeared in an Airborne Association magazine prior to the Veteran's passing in 1989. In the article he relates that he was issued two jackets and and pairs of boots while in service. One set he wore out, the other he notes as donating to the Association's Museum. Now, either he picked up a third set somewhere or he purchased replicas to wear to reunions, with his original donated set being returned to the family. As these have yet to be purchased, I would like to establish one way or the other their authenticity in order to be correct in a valuation. Any help in that regard would be greatly appreciated, if any extra photos are needed I would be happy to oblige. Thanks Larry PS, the shadow and paw you see in the second uniform photo is our cat Sammy, he always takes great interest in our photographic efforts.

  8. The edges of the holes appear to be reinforced, they could be mounting points for metal tacks or brads to hold the edge securely to the staff. The flag looks quite large, maybe 6x6', if so, possibly a regimental color? What a beautiful old Glory...Wow!
