May I add the parade uniform M1936. Army Artillery Colonel who had a monster ribbon bar: the left pin hole is under the button, the right pin hole is nearly in the armpit!
This one is rare, M1930 Air Force officer parade tunic. Used in the 1930/31 - 1936 period. The later M1936 was more decorated, with two rows of buttons and a chest wing. But that one, the M1930, is harder to find. Has suffered removal of the boards and the sleeve gold stripes, but noone's perfect The pilot photo is borrowed from Tod's Rathbonemuseum.com
