Most and Least Common Division WW2 Uniforms!


Recommended Posts

I saw my first 98th ID on eBay a few months ago and made sure to buy it. Had a 4th army patch on the right sleeve, it was an officers jacket. Not pin on insignia remaining, It was named and dated 1943 in the pocket. Haven't done research on the vet, but it's good to know they exist! I always thought the 98th was interesting as it was the one of only two divisions to never see combat, and while the other (13th Airborne) did make it overseas to England, the 98th only ever made it to Hawaii (which was an overseas deployment at the time). 

 

20th Armored is another that seems hard to find, most of the higher number armored division seem to be honestly. the 93rd division might be one of the rarest though as I haven't even seen pictures of 93rd ID uniforms. 

I am an amateur collector of US military items of the 20th century.

 

Looking for items related to:

-The Aleutian Island Campaign of WW2, Alaskan Theater, Alaska Defense Command, and more specifically the Battle of Attu

-Items related to the 50th Combat Engineer Regiment/Battalion

-Items related to Wheelus Air Force Base Libya, particularly from 1957-1960

-WW2 items belonging to service members from Northern Virginia

-WW2 Uniforms (all branches and services)

-Cheap/Throwaway WW2 named uniforms

-Smaller WW2 Groupings

-7th Infantry Division Items

-WW2 Photos and Letters (all branches, theaters, services, etc)

 

^^ PM ME!!
