  • Comments from the Curator:

    US Marine Corps. General's uniforms are the rarest and most desirable of all. With the Marines averaging only about 20 Generals in peace time and 40 reported in World War II, a World War II Marine Corps. General's uniform today brings in many tens of thousands dollars. The post World War II period 1966 dated General meets several of the criteria to make this uniform very expensive, such as:

  • was an officer in World War II (a General?)
  • saw combat in World War II
  • was wounded twice (?) in WWII
  • was decorated for valor in WWII


  • Adding to this value General's ULTRA RARE Berlin Airlift device, which is almost never encountered, plus his service in both Korea all the way up to Vietnam. If researched and identified in the future, then this uniform grouping would appreciate in price tremendously. This uniform is either for one of the most decorated Marines we have ever seen, or most likely this uniform was made for theatrical (movie/stage) productions. The devices found on the silver star seem to good to be true, as are the devices found on the purple heart ribbon. Most likely these devices were added by a customer or collector, but we can not tell which either way. The selling price reflects the theatrical production house possibility.
