Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a rare Korean War era jacket patch for the United States Air Force 6146th Advisory Group. The 6146th was activated in 1950 as the 6146th Air Base Unit and redesignated twice: it became the 6146th Air Force Advisory Group in July 1953. Charged with the training of the Republic of Korea's Air Force (ROKAF), the 6146th was on the forefront of battle as it also flew reconnaissance missions. The patch is Korean-made and would normally bring at least $500, but there are areas of the mountains that have unfortunately been accessed by a hungry silverfish.

VINTAGE: Circa Korean War (early 1950s).

SIZE: Approximately 3-3/4" in height and 4" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Fully embroidered in silk/cotton threads, twill and cotton insets.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: The patch you will receive will either be the one pictured or one in very similar condition. This is from a United States Army Air Forces collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-JES-20-VCJJX12 LCGEX7/12

CONDITION: 7- (Very Fine-): The patch shows light wear except for the areas of the mountains eaten by silverfish.
