Description

This is a custom-made WWII U.S. Army Air Corps CBI Officer’s Ike jacket that is complete with all original insignia and in excellent condition. It is constructed of fine quality, OD brown wool and lined in gold satin material. The collar is with the officer’s “U.S.” clutch back insignia and the lapels have clutch back wing and prop insignia attached to them. Sewn to the left shoulder is a theater made China, Burma and India patch. Sewn to the right shoulder is a 14th U.S. Air force patch. Sewn above the left breast pocket is a single ribbon bar for the Distinguished Flying Cross. Below this is sewn a 3-place ribbon bar with ribbons for the American Campaign Medal, the Pacific Theater Medal with one bronze campaign star and the European Theater Medal with 2 bronze campaign stars. Above the ribbon bars is sewn a cloth pilot’s wing embroidered in white thread. Sewn in a nice cross stitch to the left cuff are 4 bullion overseas bars representing more than 2 years of overseas service. There are two interior pockets on the jacket. The manufacturer’s client tag is sewn to the inside of the right interior pocket. Written on this tag is the owner’s name, “E.F. Heenan” along with his hat, coat, and trouser sizes. The script initials, “E.F.H.” are sewn above the pocket and the Chicago manufacturer’s label is sewn to the outside of the pocket. There is one pinhead size hole on the right side of the outer right pocket flap. Other than this, the jacket is without damage and remains in excellent condition. It looks beautiful on a mannequin and displays very nicely.
