US 82nd Airborne class A jacket with unique coined collar discs Airborne Artillery Battalion


Excellent and named 82nd Airborne class A jacket with period sewn insignia. The garment is in very good light worn condition and comes with the Tie and Garrison cap found together with the jacket. The garment is named Gerstner which could be a good base for further research. The Jump wing oval indicates he served in a Airborne Artillery Battalion. For me, the favorite detail on this garment is the British half Pennies used as backing for the Collar disc insignia. Typical detail for a soldier who was stationed in the UK prior to D-Day. The garment is a killer piece that would very nicely display in any Airborne focussed collection!
