Uniform identification needed


Recommended Posts

Wow! It's been a looooong time since I posted. My friend wants to find out about this uniform. She has a thrift store. I told her I don't anything about it but I could find out. Why are the pants a different color? What do the patches signify. Approximate value? Anything else? Photos: Jacket front. Jacket left sleeve. Pants tag. Hopefully enough to make a proper ID. Thanks!

Army service Forces World War II. Looks like the guy never served overseas. The pants size is huge. What size is the jacket? If the jacket is over a size 44 chest and in good shape the set could be worth $100 or more to someone looking for an original large size uniform to wear reenacting.

Baron nailed it on what it's worth, anything above size 42 seems to sell for a lot of money on eBay, I think I saw one auction go into the $200's one time, but unless it's being sold online it'd probably be pretty hard to sell it for that price, as usually those prices are caused by intense bidding wars. As for the patches, looks like aznation beat me to it!

I would add that if this uniform were the normal 36R jacket and 30x30 trousers we see, and without a veteran name, it might bring $30 tops.

 

Two things drive up the price of uniforms:

1. Larger size

2. History of the veterans who wore it (combat units, awards, etc).

 

Agree with huntssurplus - put this one on ebay after you're thoroughly measured the chest, sleeves, etc.
