  1. Greetings, I agree with Owen. I stopped looking at the pictures as I thought that would even cause it to degrade further. It's a shame to see these die on the vine but "if it were offered" I would respectfully decline. Best, Peter
  2. Greetings, I can't find the specific reference but the Glider Badge became obsolete in 1961 but could still be worn on the US Army uniform I think (think) into the 1970's. There's an AR that covers this but I can't remember which one (not 670-1). With that in mind, if you could wear it, they would make it. I like it and don't feel its a reunion piece. Best, Peter
  3. Greetings,


    I made a transaction with this member in February and have been getting the run-around since.  I have done business with him before so I am a little surprised.  The last contact I had was in the beginning of April and has not responded to my emails of late.





  4. Greetings, Real-deal pieces that were indeed sold in sets of singles on a cardboard sheet wrapped in cellophane. Certainly, post-war entrpreneurs were trying to get the most sheckles for their efforts. I think it's a nice find; legitimate pre-2003 stuff is getting harder tocome by. Best, Peter
  5. Greetings, Jacket is cleaning up nicely and is an honest size 40. No knit wear to speak of, working original zipper, good leather and if it was re-dyed, probably period done by the original owner and not to enhance the sale. The grand-daughter is super nice and excited to share her grandfather's history (who sounds like a REALLY nice guy) with a long history in the military after WWII. And, he and my father-in-law were in the same squadron. Worth every penny I paid. I will post some pictures when all the dust settles. Best, Peter
  6. Greetings, I typically only buy for the time being: pbuchh7715 on eBay and WAF Peter
  7. Greetings, The insignia on the board is an odd shape; more like the design you see on a Navy Medical Officer board as opposed to a rank (oak leaf). Best, Peter
  8. Greetings, If memory serves "fat devil" is WWII, "skinny devil" is post war. Best, Peter
  9. Greetings, #3 looks like JROTC/ROTC Cadet of the Year Award ribbon. Best, Peter
  10. Greetings, #7 are CPT's bars for flight jacket or flight suit. Best, Peter
  11. Greetings, Just spoke with the Chief, JROTC for our Brigade (benefit of working at a SROTC BDE HQ, I guess) and asked him about this tab. He indicated that participants in the Raider Competition earn an "arc" for their dress uniform that resembles the gold/black one in the picture but it is made of metal. He said there is not a cloth tab/arc that he is aware of but some schools may make them as "morale patches" out of their own budget. It is also not an SROTC piece. Best, Peter
  12. Greetings, I remember this guy from shows when I lived in Texas. He knows exactly what he's selling....... Best, Peter
  13. Greetings, I it its the acronym for Defense Distribution Depot Columbus Ohio. Best, Peter
  14. Greetings, The fur on your jacket (OP) is actually wolverine. Best, Peter
