    This is my main focus of collecting and from what I see the Tunic looks good and the visor as well. $150 would seem like a deal to me.

    Hi, hawk3370.

    I just received the Uniform Lot.
    (YES!!! it took over a month to get here, thanks to the customs!!!!).

    The first thing i though was to look behind the pilot's wings and i found that its a pin back AMICO (American Insignia CO, New York, NY)

    The Maker Mark: The name "AMICO" is writen in an arch above the word "Sterling" (its on the left side of the shield - behind the right wing). Just like the picture on "Silver Wings, Pinks and Greens" Book, page 71.

    Soon i will be posting some pictures to verify its autenticity.

    PS: By the way, over both shoulders have Colonel rank insignias.

    Thanks
