    I used to collect US items back in the 1980's.

    The trousers could be wartime, but might easily be post war too. There should be a label sewn to the inside of the pocket which will be dated. The ink stamp will be the soldiers service number.

    The Class A uniform tunic is 100% WW2 issue.

    The ties are fine. The cap I cannot say for sure, but might be post war.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I forgot to say the value would be fairly low. The tunic has some shiny marks from being pressed with an iron. I would say about $50 to $60 maximum for the lot.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ewan, I had a big US collection back then. I used to re-enact US Inf. Everything was original even down to the socks and underpants! Sadly it all get sold when I divorced in 1989.

    Get me some pics of your mates items and I will tell you what it is.

    Ironing is a very bad idea if you don't know what you are doing. That jacket Frenchy showed has been ironed with a hot iron without a cover, hence the bad shiney marks.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade i had the answer for the date sew in the pocket and it's may24 1943 so for now the trousers and the tunic and the tie are ww2 just the cap it should be since it'stated in the ad that it was from the same vet after checking it more on the arm there is a patch with a 2
    i will see if i will be in luck with it
