Nicely done.  VERY authentic looking.  Being an AAF collector an English airbase town would be more appropriate for me.  Wonder if they do custom requests?  Hmmmmm.

Looks very authentic and "been there" look.. Scary that this could be sold in another 50 years as a 100 year old original from the WW2 Battle..

Unless you have a degree in metallurgy and can detect the type of paint used it could be a challenge..

Nicely done though, must admit the Patina "sings"

Always looking for quality condition USAAF stationary,ephemera,equipment and clothing.
