Picked this up at the local flea market a month or so ago. It is in perfect condition, it is only missing the collar discs (which were detachable anyway). Came with two overseas caps, pants, leg wraps, and the jacket obviously.
This is a nice, officer's quality uniform and was probably private purchase. It has Bakelite buttons, two overseas service stripes, honorable discharge stripe (upside down), and a PFC bugle corps rate.
I love this thing. Hangs proudly on the wall. I've just been looking for some collar discs to finish it off. I would kill for some discs numbered for 113, 114, 115, 116 regiments (the parts of the 29th ID), but might just go for normal US and infantry discs until I can find those (let me know if you have any!)
29th ID became very famous for it's actions in WWII, it's neat to have something that predates those events.
