It looks very nice. My question is though, wanted the 82AB be on the right side (combat) vs the 17th? Maybe its me, but I usually see it the other way around. Also, if he was on D-Day, as stated, I would suspect the 82d pacth would be on the right side.

 

I don't know the answer, that's why I am asking.

 

The REAL NICE ONE is the jump jacket,boots, helmet by motelbuyer - last look it was over 2500 with 5+days to go.

It is at 2750.00 right now. Here is the Ebay reference number for those interested, although definitely shouldn't be hard to find. :w00t:

If memory serves, this cross stitched Ike jacket is part of a larger group that sold at the Show of Shows this February. Seller at SOS was Pete Bennethum. It had an incredible patched jump jacket and another uniform/patched jacket with it. I was quoted $3000 for the group, which I thought was a good price with most of the money in the jump jacket. I hemmed and hawwed at the SOS and someone else got it. So it appears that the new buyer is now breaking it up.

I just cannot understand people like that who break up groupings like you have said

what a shame as they have being together like that for the last 65+ years why not

leave it like that as a entire Grouping....

There trying to make a lot more profit for them selves what a real shame, Its all about money !

Re this 513/17th grouping, that helmet must have been one the veteran wore post-war for reunions then, as it certainly ain't a wartime liner in there, and everything seems to have been painted at the same time... hmmmm...

 

As for this Ike, if the guy was 507th, he can be a Normandy jump veteran, then moving to the 17th Airborne with the regiment, then assigned to the 82nd as not enough points to go home with the 17th - or he could just have stayed on, of course.

 

Cheers,

Glen.
