These are from a vet I'm still finding more info on. He was a welder (gas) & worked on the C-47s that flew the Hump.

 

You can see by the cuff areas he did quit a few repairs.

 

Some for the insignias are from VN due to his son was there.

That is nice, I like to see some genuine wear on a combat uniform. It really beats the unused looking spares they often kept for special duties or inspections, while the set you have looks like it was actually worn and used in the line of duty. Great finds

I agree, it just has that look. I have an very patinaed gas touch head I may display with it.
