1st SF Group Beret Find at Flea Market

Recommended Posts

It was a feeding frenzy (me and my normal competition) at the seller was throwing "OD Stuff" from the back of a box truck onto the table and ground early this morning at the flea market . Missed some interesting things, but was able to get this beret and field jacket for $35.

 

Based on other things I saw, but didn't get, he was an SF Medic. Sgt Bella "Bill" Mikes. Doesn't appear he was in VN. Later in the 70's, he was with the 10th and 11th Groups at Ft Devens, MA.

 

Inside of beret is great - embroidery on silk camo para material. The SF patch on the field jacket is the early subdued type on twill.

Good eye...Good find.

 

Robert-

Actually, it's my father with the good eye. He got to the table a few minutes before I did and was holding the beret for me to look at. (he wanted to make sure it was worth $15). All the other sharks circling in the water were waiting for him to put it down.

We've been going to this flea market together for over 50 years. He just turned 90. He doesn't know values, but he knows militaria.

Kurt,

I'm glad to hear he is still active and finding quality items. I will pick him up and he can ride with me next week.

Robert-

He'd be up for it! You two would make a good duo.

 

After the flea market this morning we took a tour of the Battleship New Jersey on the Camden, NJ waterfront.

Looks like you two had a really fine day out and some great finds too. Wonderful beret, but that picture of the two of you is just fabulous.
