B3 Jacket, 41st ID uniform, Escape Map and a Crusher?

Recommended Posts

Been having a fun couple of days. These finds came from a couple of different places.


1. The B3 jacket is in ok shape. Zipper works, no real tears. The zippers are shot on the pants, which is too bad because the rest of them are in good shape.


2. The 41st ID jacket came from the Vets sister today. It has a great beaded patch on it. I started a thread in the SSI subforum. It also came with a chocolate colored shirt, the patches in the pic, the pile of chevrons and a few Japanese items.


3. The escape map came from an old garage saler. No history to it. Ive never had one of these before. I cant find any indication on who produced it and who it was for. Were these for Air Crews?


4. The tan Crusher. I was curious if this is a true Crusher? The leather bill is one piece and will fold. I cant find any label in it. Its in very nice clean shape. The headphones came with it from the same person, although i dont know if the are an original pairing.


As always thanks for looking! .... Jay
