  1. I bought this several years ago from the estate of a gentleman who had served with the 10th SFG in Germany, 5th SFG in Vietnam & 82nd Airborne for Operation Power Pack. Based on the colors of the neckerchief I assumed it was related to an armored unit, but as far as I known this gentleman was never assigned to any armored units. At the same time, if the neckerchief was red/blue/white instead of red/blue/yellow, I would have assumed it was Mike Force related (considering that this guy was in Vietnam with 5th SFG, that would have made sense).
  2. Wasn't this set for sale at an estate sale recently (I was thinking it was in Florida)?
  3. I had thought about going to that auction, but it really was in the middle of nowhere in Alabama. Most of the items that where auctioned where out of an antique dealer's booth at an antique mall in that area, but the original owner had been in the USAF in the 1960's, so some of the patches may have been his. I think the auction house is going to be doing two more auctions with items from the same estate.
  4. Yes, pieces of gold tiger stripe where added to the sides, cuffs & bottom. I think Col. Glodek was a bigger guy, so I am guessing the shirt in it's original size (Asian Large) was just too small for him.
  5. I picked up this group over the weekend at an estate sale for the late Col. Thomas Glodek. Col. Glodek was also the author of "The Advisory Team", with the information listed below coming from the back of his book; "Colonel Thomas R. Glodek, USA (Ret.) is a Vietnam War veteran. He served as a U.S. Army Captain, United States Military Assistance Command, Vietnam (MACV) IV Corps, over fourteen months from June, 1968 to July, 1969. During his tour he was a MACV intelligence advisor in Chau Phu & Kien Giang Provinces assigned to the CIA’s Phoenix Program. The Author’s first assignment
  6. I picked up these two flight suits last week from the estate of a USN pilot, what makes them odd is they both have built-in flotation capabilities, which I hadn't seen before. In addition, the white one is made out of the experimental HT-1 fabric, which the Navy tested in the early 1960's & the flight suit is made to be worn over a torso harness (I thought the harness was always worn over the flight suit). Does anybody have some information these, where they something that the USN was testing for a while (I think the USN only tested the HT-1 fabric in 1961)?
  7. The last pair of windproof pattern trousers I had I sold for $1,900 on eBay, so I would think $4-5k for the set, but that's just my opinion.
  8. Looks like somebody must have bought it, as it is listed as sold on the letgo site. The woman selling it had the same last name as what is on the party suit, so it make sense that it was her father's.
  9. I had bought this hat about a year ago from the estate of a Vietnam collector & while he had a quite a few authentic items, it seemed like he also had quite a few repro pieces. So, with that in mind I am uncertain if this hat is an original piece or something that was produced more recently?
