Sewn on each shoulder epaulette are subdued cloth Brigadier General's star insignia. Fading in that area shows where he once had his Bird Colonel's insigni sewn on. Sewn on his upper left sleeve is the subdued cloth insignia of service in the 4th US Army. Behind that patch is fading evidence of there once being a 101st Airborne Division patch with it's extra "Airborne" arc sewn on. Sewn on his left breast is a standard subdued cloth "US Army" tape which shows correct age fading and shrinkage on the inside of the coat. He has a subdued Senior Parachutist patch sewn above the former patch which also shows proper fading and shrinkage on the inside. This patch is on top of a faded spot where another parachutist patch once was. Sewn near the top of his right sleeve are the subdued, combination, 101st Airborne Division, and Airborne arc patches which also show the correct fading and shrinkage on the inside of the coat.
Sewn on his upper right breast is his subdued cloth name tape of "Muller". It shows no evidence of later placement or re-attachment which attests to this uniform's authenticity. The tape also shows the correct fading and shrinkage on the inside of the coat. Condition of this coat is very good. It shows much wear and washing - so much so that most internal snaps and high points leave a whiter color witness mark on the jacket's outside (as is also correct for original worn pieces). The lower him is showing some fraying and there is one very tiny hole in lower left sleeve (not noticable). Otherwise the jacket looks very nice looking with the jaunty combat appearance. The inside is also in excellent condition.
Comments from the Curator:
Ok. Folks, here is your chance to score on a wonderful, attributed, Vietnam War, Ariborne Combat General. How many Airborne Combat General's uniforms have you ever seen for sale? And were they/it ever named? Included with this uniform jacket are 4 pages of biographical career information on General Muller. So here is a chance to get in on the ground floor for a bargain priced combat Airborne General.
