    My interests are korean and vietnam pilots' helmets and gear.
  1. Owen if you go to the facebook group flight gear collectors& collections. They will help you with your questions.6
  2. I would stay away from this seller ... 99% retaped helmet and way to expensief for these helmets. In a other forum group are several members going nuts if they hear the name "swissthing".
  3. Thanks hink441 for your info about this jackey thanks!!!
  4. Hi, Its a long time i posted something here at the forum but This is my new addition to the collection. On a other forum they say that the nametag is for a flight observer or a meteoraligist and not a airmen but the jacket has the patches? So hope you guys could sort this out.... Thanks. Niki
  5. Yes it had a collar stand. So its better to leave the jacket broken than to restore it? Ok but for me it looks better and i can say that i have one in my collection beqause i never would think to own one. Dont think this is a pilot jacket beqause i can not found what 608 ACE sqdrn means
  6. It was a dilemma to do this. Thought it was better to restore.
  7. Hi, i bought this jacket beqause i have a passion about the F-86 sabre aircraft and Korean war USAF in general. I have beein told that this is a PERRY SPORTSWEAR A-2 from the WW2 era following to the Korean war . I will be honest and say that the zipper was broken and the lining was shredderd so i have it corrected by restoring the jacket with the original zipper for that kind of jacket and a new liner in the same color it was in. I think if i dont say anything nobody will notice this but i 'm honest about this. Will this hurt the value and what would the correct price be for this kind of jacket beqause i see alot WW2 A-2 but never korean era? Had some several offers on the jacket but its to nice to sell it. Hope you guys can help me? niki.
