The rarest is the Nose Art 5TH, ARMY AIR FORCE Garment bag, The wonderful thing about this bag is that it has the nose art, it has the leather handle that is in above good condition, all well marked with the ww2 ARMY AIRFARE , INSIGNIA INSIDE AND OUT, and the zippers work smoothly on both large side pockets, and the interior , still has a minty, type b-4, garment bag to hang your uniforms , ON the other side is stenciled FRANK J. The type d-2 oxygen tank, was carried in the B-24 LIBERATOR, and is minty with the khaki canvas carry bag.
There is a tiny , tiny puncture above the nose turret, effects nothing. The flight jacket is made of horse hide, and lined with wool is in above good condition , with a tiny spot of leather loss on the shoulder again effects nothing, the one cuff is traded , and I bought replacement , which will be in the box.
The goggles are the the same model worn in the John Wayne movies, the period A-N 6530, the head band and frame are in good shape. The army air force helmet is well make , also there is an Army air force uniform hat.
