  1. Thanks. I'm a total novice when it comes to WWI items, so I posted the image on one of the WWI US Facebook pages to get some more info. I was informed that the collar discs were "backed by green & black felt to represent Air Service". Another member posted this photo to show them in color.
  2. Although this is something I don't normally collect, I thought it was interesting enough to pick up and share on the forum. The portrait depicts a WWI Enlisted Pilot taken in Coblenz during the occupation of Germany. Unfortunately the seller didn't have any information as to the man, nor any other items pertaining to him.
  3. Scott, Hope these help. I couldn't find anything regarding his WWII service that you mentioned. Best, Nic
  4. Thank you all for the comments. I usually don't purchase items like these. In fact I try to stay away from anything SEAL related unless I can vet it first. The seller had this jacket listed as a "Navy Combat Jacket" and was asking $12.00 shipped for it. I figured I'd take a shot at it for 12 bucks. When it showed up last week, I noticed the postage cost for the seller was $12.98! The jacket looks to be almost unworn. No rips, tears or fading. The patches also look "new", but not new as in they have the appearance they were sewn on yesterday. The name tapes are similar to the ones
  5. Thank you for the comments. I appreciate it. I've attached photos showing the stitching.
  6. Hello All, I was hoping for some opinions as to the originality of this jacket. I know the jacket itself is legit, but was unsure of the patches. I have no info on the owner or anything else related to it. Thanks!
