    Default RCAF jacket - original/worth????

    Hi:

    Once again I need an opinion on a jacket, is this a 1945 original? and how much should I pay for it?

    Thanks

    Luis

    It is original. It is an RAF issue tunic for a Canadian serving in the RAF.

    Wrong shoulder titles - those are officers it should be OR's style with the eagle and 'Canada' and the ribbons are added, looks made up on a wartime jacket. It is also missing the belt. 40 pounds would be generous IMO. I'd expect to see RCAF buttons on it, but that is not a show stopper.

    So, this is an original RAF, that was issued to Canadians? right? asterperious, why do you think they added the Canadian shoulders titles? Does value rises if it is Canadian? The ribbon bar I can understand but not the shoulder titles. Nevertheless it is a good piece right? So Iīm going for it.

    Thanks to all who replied.

    Cheers

    Belts can sometimes be hard to find. Bear that in mind.

    In Canada you could not get $50 for this jacket, I have a couple of Canadian ones, and no one wants them.

    Thatīs why I don't get it, when asterperious said that someone put the fake Canada insignia on a original RAF jacket...that should not bring price up...

    I did not say fake, I said wrong, they are officers shoulder tabs that may or may not be reproductions, hard to tell from the pictures., not the correct OR's overseas service styles. That is a UK made OR's SD jacket, not impossible it was issued to a Canadian, but I really doubt it, Spend you r money with Camp X if he is still looking to part with them. non Aircrew SD are easy to come by and not very desirable to collect. Bottom line, whoever dressed up this jacket really made little effort to be accurate.
