Here is a nice one for someone to add to their WWII collection! Up for grabs is a beautiful US Army Air Force Pre-War Class A Uniform Jacket dated 1940 size 35L and has the felt AAF patch on the left sleeve with Army Air Corps blue and orange piping sewn around it to make the patch POP! There is also rare Pre WWII Private First Class chevrons with Wing/Props embroidered on black felt on both sleeves, and two overseas bars sewn on the bottom of the left sleeve. The jacket also still has WWII collar brass US & AAF with flat clutch holders that have been on the uniform forever, (pin-back) SUSTINEO ALAS Army Air Force DUI pins, (sterling silver) Qualification Badge with Rifle & Carbine hangers, 3 place (Theater Made) ribbon bar with Pacific Theater (3 battle stars) American Campaign, PH WIA (w/ Oak Leaf Cluster), and a WWII Victory ribbon.The jacket also still has the Q. 19, 1940 35L, and the belt and belt hooks sewn into the back of the jacket. You don't see the belt on enlisted jackets very often!
The jacket only has one small hole that I can see on the front left breast pocket (see photos), is about the size of a pencil led, and appears to be a small burn hole. Also included because it was at the same estate sale is a very fine WWII Army Air Force tan summer Overseas cap with blue and orange piping. This cap looks in near mint condition, and appears to have never been worn.
This will make an outstanding addition to any WWII collection and is researchable with the vets laundry number written inside. The item "Pre WWII Uniform US Army Air Force Class A Uniform Jacket Ike Patch Chevron Pin" is in sale since Friday, June 1, 2018.
