Went to a Estate Sale awhile back of an antique dealer. Was one of the first in line and got pick of most everything inside. Ironically the best uniform in the lot (being the Officer 8th AAF Ike with British Insignia) was the cheapest of the uniforms at $20. He also had a barn out back where they were selling things for mere dollars. Bought the shovel, Overseas Bag (Named to a Career Officer who ended up being Commandant at West Point for a time), and Arisaka Bayonet for $5 total. All in all a great Sale! Stuff is still out there!

Great finds, could we see some close ups of the 8th AAF Ike?

Certainly. Bullion wings, British-made felt patch, and a British Wound Stripe

Is the 8th AF named?

It is not unfortunately.

The piece of metal insignia is a British wound stripe, although when applied to a US uniform by a British tailor it was meant to represent an overseas stripe.

I will pay top dollar for original WWII items pertaining to:

 

OSS

OSS Maritime Unit

NCDU

UDT

Scouts and Raiders

FSSF
