Value of this item please? Any ideas?

4 posts in this topic

I received this item yesterday.  It's a 1940s vintage USAAF summer flight suit, size 36.  It is one of several items in a collection that I'm considering purchasing.  I am not up on the value of these items and was wondering if anyone has any idea of it's value.  The other items in this collection(which I may be posting about later) include an Eisenhower Jacket, Field coat, shirts and a pair of pants, and a bomber jacket.  All of these items are authentic USAAF garments from the 1940s.

Well, the first question that one should ask regarding this kind of purchase is:  What is the value to you?  How would you display this? 

After doing a rough search, looks like they go for under 200USD.

Here is some items to peruse.  

Some interesting fact is that Michael Eisner (Ex CEO Disney) was the grandson of this company namesake.
