MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Photos are photo paper; discharge is printed paper; stripes and shoulder patches are embroidered with cotton/poly embroidery thread on cotton twill; aircraft patches are decals on leather.
Patches are to be sewn onto garment.
This is from a large collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months.
7 (Very Fine): Photos have minor fading; discharge has been folded and shows minor discoloration and soiling; stripes and sleeve patches show only very minor wear to the edges; aircraft patches have minor soiling and the larger has minor to moderate cracking of the decal, but the leather on both is soft and supple .
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
