    More green stuff ,OG107

    Post by ripcord on Thu Apr 03, 2014 9:10 pm

    Hey all,

    Have been finding some green jewels lately.  The first shirt is dated 1960, and was a type used between 1952 and 1963. It is  in new conditions.

    The second is the more familiar type that some of us old timers got to wear in the '70s..  It was made in 1973, and  is in great conditions.

    Both shirts are in hard, make that impossible, to find size XL...







    Enjoy...

    Early 50's HBT shirt.  

    Worn during the Korean War and early Vietnam.


    This one was owned by a flying  officer who was attached to the 11th. Airborne Division ..

                                                                   

                                                                   
                                                                   







    All insignia and SSI was removed . Strangely, the Name and US ARMY tapes were not.
    Good sign that someone at some point probably sold the insignia and felt there was no value in the tapes.
    This is a good candidate for restoration.

    Found this interesting  mint OG107 ball type cap awhile back.

    Appears to be a private purchase cap manufactured by a known headgear and  beret manufacturer .

    For some reasons this type of cap reminds me of Colonel Decker from the A-team series.... Laughing Laughing
    Very cool piece.
