Scarecrow,

Thanks for the eval. Yes, it does have USN in black under the collar. I am not sure I can drop 4 bills on it. Being married with a son in college pretty much limits me to small purchases.

The owner found it in a trunk he bought, along with 2 jumper sets, a USN blanket,an AG44 uniform and this vest...

Nice jacket.  Does it have the "USN" stenciled under the collar?  As far as pricing goes the Navy flight jackets do not bring the kind of money that an A-2 can command,  This jacket is very similar to the AN-J3A, which was part of the Army Navy effort to standardize flight gear.  The last AN-J3A I saw sold went for $600 and it was in excellent condition.  Can be difficult to tell overall condition from a single photo but I would guess yours would be in the $400-$600 range.  I'm not an expert, so please just take that as a collector's opinion.

HELMETS / Re: Helmet 6B47

Ratnik,

Thank you for posting this helmet,, however I am going to lock this topic. Currently the Allied Militaria Forum is only focusing on Soviet and Russian Militaria during a time when the Soviet Union was Allied with the Western Powers. Given that this helmet falls into the current category and the Russian Federation is not currently aligned with the Western Powers, this topic is closed..

If you have Soviet and Russian Militaria from time periods when the Country fought alongside the Allies, (WW1 and WW2) then we look forward to seeing that type of Militaria from those conflicts posted under the appropriate Russian sections.

A Soviet WW2 era helmet for example or a uniform from the WW2 era would be most appropriate..

Below is the topic title that specifies Russia as Allies...

RUSSIAN EMPIRE, USSR & RUSSIA MILITARY (AS ALLIES)

Thank you

HELMETS / Helmet 6B47
« Last post by Ratnik on May 23, 2018, 02:45:23 PM »




The Russian-designed 6B47 helmet is a part of ‘Ratnik’ (‘Warrior’) combat gear.

The new 6B47 helmet is made of composite materials and very lightweight, at only 1 kilogram (1,240 grams fully loaded). Russian helmet has a three-layer structure with a composite shell inside and outside and discrete fabric material in the middle. This structure rejects nearly 90 degrees every shot gets to it.

Russian military helmet 6B47 comes with 3 balaclavas and 2 helmet covers (Russian digital camo and white) and additional inner head connections.

I don't have it... yet. It is a size 40 made by Edmund T. Church, Inc. and has USN stenciled under the collar. Contract date puts it in the 1942 range. The leather is fairly supple, with no cracking. The Talon zipper works. There is some mothing on the waistband and cuffs and there are a couple of tears on the left cuff but it should display well. The name tag is missing unfortunately. The owner is in contact with the family and says he can get a name.

I don't know what kind of offer to make, if he decides to sell it. Can anyone help in me out?

Thanks for the info on the tab. I hadn't researched it yet or put it next to my AB Command w/o the tab I have. No all I need is a nice WW II era Puking Buzzard to put it on top of

]Carl,

Not trying to hijack your thread but thought I'd post one of my Id'd B-15's here.  Used but decent shape, knits are pretty rough though. Matched the contractor up to your list.
