To Remove, Or Not To Remove?

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up this Ike jacket with a nice theater made 41st Infantry division patch and some sterling 1st LT bars. The jacket appears to have had a 1st ID patch and 4 ribbons on it at one time, but sadly, along with all the buttons, they've been stripped. Also, there's no name in the jacket. I'm usually an advocate for keeping uniforms and their insignia together, but in this case I'm leaning towards stripping it.

So, what's your opinion? Looking forward to your responses.

If it had a name, I'd never dream of it. Given the circumstances (missing stuff and no name), looks like GDMortarman could put it to good use!

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]

WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

I have a jacket that the same thing has been done. No name And all the ribbons and buttons have been taken off. What I'm wondering is why I'm thinking that it was a worn out jacket and they transferred everything to the new one?
