26th BS direct embroidered cap

Recommended Posts

I found this in a local antique mall, did not purchase as VN war era items are not my normal collecting AO and I wanted to do some research before taking the plunge. SO what do y'all think about it and what is a general price range?

IRN looks to mean Instructor Radar Navigator, BUFF definitely refers to B-52s which the 26th BS flew until 1968.

I thought the embroidery looked odd, especially the backing. The tag is intact but that blob is like hot glue, so I would have to be fairly careful to remove it to see a date.
