The jacket is made of British Barathea Wool. The jacket is complete with hand sewn British Made Bullion Headquarters patch on the left shoulder, and hand sewn British Made Bullion 9th Air Force patch on the right shoulder.
These two patches are beauties! This combination of patches is just about as good as you will find. The jacket has 4 overseas stripes on the lower left sleeve.
The jacket has beautifully toned British Made Bullion 2nd Lieutenant rank insignia on each shoulder. The jacket has smooth faced clutch back US Army Officer's collar insignia and smooth faced clutch back General Staff Branch insignia on the lapels. The jacket has a pin back 3 place lower ribbon bar that includes ETO ribbon with one star, WW2 Victory, and Occupation.The upper 2 place bar is clutch back with smooth face clutches and in includes a Good Conduct ribbon and an American Campaign ribbon. It would appear, based on the ribbons, that Lt. Freed was once a Warrant Officer and was promoted to Lieutenant at some point. All of the buttons on the jacket are made by Gaunt, and the integrated belt is complete with buckle. The jacket is in excellent condition with very little wear, and no mothing that i can find. Inside, the jacket is fully lined and there is a good looking tailor's tag from New Bond that Freed has written his name and serial number on. Inside of the breast pocket there is another Bond tag with a size of 40R and a date of 1944 where Free has again written his name and serial number. Though not as sexy as the fly boys, these uniforms are hard to come by, and this is a real beauty in immaculate condition. The measurements are below for your convenience.
