Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is a super rare jacket patch for the United States Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Coastal Patrol Base 17 in Riverhead, New York - it is "signed" by the designer, Zack Mosley. The establishment of Coastal Patrol Bases was part of the national response to finding that German saboteurs were successfully landing on US soil: Number 17 was established at Long Island, close to the scene of once such infiltration at Amagansett. The base was active only from August 1942 until August of 1943. The patch shows a very tired cartoon plane wiping his brow at its center.

VINTAGE: Circa World War II.

SIZE: Approximately 4-3/8" in diameter.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Felt embroidered in silk, cotton threads; mesh backing.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: "Signed" in embroidery: BY ZACK MOSLEY.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Army Air Forces collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VBJJX12 LHGEX9/12 SHJJX5/13

CONDITION: 6 (Fine+): The patch shows some moderate wear.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
