Seller: thomas8984 (3,432) 100% , Location: Woodway, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 352135346573 Up for auction is a super lot of 24, USAF, horizontal stripes, 1950's, that were never implemented. When the Air Force became it's own branch in 1947, the AF wanted to go to their own uniforms and ranks. These were designed and approved, but not to be worn until all existing supplies of the old ranks were used up. By the time that happened, there was a change in top leadership, and the new stripes were cancelled. But, a number of them were already produced. Most of the supply was destroyed in the 50's. I obtained these years ago from a person who had close ties to the program. All are new, old stock, never used. They are cut edge. The 1st class rank insignia measure 3" by 1 1/4" to 1 3/8". Slight variations in size due to the cutting of the edges. Not all exactly uniform. The 2nd class stripes measure the same, but only have two stripes. I will combine shipping for multiple purchases to save on shipping costs. I only ship to locations within the US. I only use ebay shipping labels and will only ship via methods that include tracking. Please ask or determine shipping costs prior to bidding. If the winning bidder, payment is expected within 7 days of auction end, unless you contact me first. I can be flexible, within reason. Customer service and customer satisfaction are a top priority. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
