    I think this is a buckle from a flying jacket but im not 100%. And the little brass bits look like belt ends? Nice id tag and one of his dog tags.

    Hi Andy, the buckle is from an enlisted mans webbing trouser belt.

    No idea on current values sorry as I sold all my US collection 20 years ago.

    Cheers, Ade.
