    CNAC wing

    CNAC wings seem to be getting spendy indeed.....I saw a 3 inch wing sell for $2,500 not long ago and a matching set of a 1inch, 2 inch, and 3 inch sell for $5,500. I remember when these were $900.....should have bought more back then I guess!! JD
  2. Small world. The flag was indeed signed Dec. of 45 at Yokosuka as marked on the flag. Thanks for the info. I will definitely keep you in mind. JD

    A2 appraisal

    Just my humble opinion, but a original jacket with this kind of artwork would bring 4K all day on the open market and with some provenance and other items potentially more. Also as mentioned, insure it for at least 5k if not more. Dave brings up some great points as well, have to be careful out there. Fraudulent deals/sellers are becoming more of a regularity. JD
  4. Yep. As already mentioned, No original WW2 U.S. jackets were made in China. As mentioned, must be a modern jacket.
  5. Love the logbook and great photos. Thanks again for sharing this super cool group. JD
  6. Great group. I was in on this one as well. Good to see a forum member got it and will appreciate it. JD
  7. These POW camp made wings are extremely difficult to authenticate. I have had a good set in my collection. The back was different from these, but I would imagine each camp or even barracks did things different. Wish I could tell you for sure either way, but that's almost impossible. JD
  8. That is a great scarf! Most of my neighbors are annoying! Haha Youre a lucky guy! JD
  9. That was a very nice score! Thanks for bumping it! JD
  10. Very nice uniform. Great to have all that info to go along with it! Thanks for sharing it. JD
  11. Ditto, I saw them as well. I knew I had seen one before, now I remember where....This thread that I even commented on! haha Nice score. Congrats..... JD
  12. Excellent wing. Even greater with the story of the original owner. Thanks for sharing it here. It was a great read. I know Green Lake well. It is a very high dollar real estate area to this day. JD
