Nice piece. It would last about 10 minutes at the Raleigh Military show. Quite sought after there. Dave

Oak Leaves on the purple heart ribbon? I kinda find that unusual. If you can find any info - that would be purple turned into gold IMO. May I also say "One Hailuva Division"..

Nice to see an hand sewn duck patch. I have an 28th infantry jacket with an hand sewn duck patch and some of you guys say that that is a "red flag", that these patches was machine sewn during ww2. Have you seen any more hand sewn duck patches?

I agree, nice looking jacket. The vast majority of Ruptured Duck patches were machine sewn. That said, millions of them were applied to uniforms at the end of the war, so there are certainly exceptions. A hand sewn example isn't a fatal flaw for me, it just warrants further inspection. For example, is there a machine stitched outline of holes under the hand sewn patch? If this is the case, it has been replaced at some point...

Before I purchased this ike I look for any indication of ghosting, I believe this is the first hand sewn rupertured duck I think I have owned also. It was cheap so I didn't think a put together. I still don't, I think I got lucky in finding it.

Nice jacket. I'd buy it on the loose.

 

You ought to follow up with the person who sold it and ask where they got it. You might be able to backtrack on it. Definitely worth the effort.

Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.

Try inputting M-(last 4) into the searchable database located in the individual research section. Since you know the last name is Moore, you can immediately look at those last names with that last 4 - assuming your guy is in the range included within the database, you may have some luck going that route.

The 30th Infantry does have a roster here, you could look through all the Moore's until you find one with a matching last 4 digits. That is how I Id'd mine.
