A large lot of Navy Uniforms I know nothing about


Recommended Posts

Well not nothing but very little! I am not a Navy collector but this was too good to pass up. It looks like the suitcase got wet and passed some rust staining onto the whites. Im in a hotel now so can’t really try anything to see if it will help get rid of some of it. Thinking maybe a cold soak but want some expert opinions on what exactly this is and what should be done with it. Might pass it on to a Navy collector.

 

If anybody wants a pic of something specific just let me know. Looks like most of it is named to the same guy.

I’m no expert either but my experience with USN groups is that researching the veteran can add value.

 

Looking at what you have most Navy jumpers and pants don’t have much value but that can change with research.

 

The knit items will have more value because they aren’t encountered as often.

It looks like WW2 but the rates being on the right side indicates it is pre 1922 when the rate went to the left sleeve.

 

Right sleeve is correct for a boatswain's mate before 1948.

I didn't see any serial numbers anywhere. Sorry my last post was auto corrected. I'll check a little harder, but the only thing I saw that wasn't a name was in the whites but couldn't make it out

What state/area were these found in? Although it is a fairly common name, you may get lucky and find him on findagrave.

 

You can do a general search of cemeteries in the state/area that you believe he may be from or where you purchased them. Then you can narrow down the search field a bit more by putting a typical wartime birth year (like 1918) and selecting one of the +/- ranges (like 10 years), which will exclude people born before or after the typical birth era of WWII veterans.

 

You may get lucky and find a listing with a photo of the military style grave marker with branch/rank, or even perhaps the listing would have his obituary. This may also have his middle initial or name (if he had one), which would help with muster roll searches. I’ve got lucky a few times before searching in this manner for common names, but it is not always full proof.

Not a huge amount...except for the knit caps, which tend to bring some pretty handsome money to vintage clothing collectors.
