Comments from the Curator:
General Carlton Dargusch's uniform is a nicely named and presentable piece. With so many military items being so expensive today (just look at anyauction's results these days), it is nice to find an affordable piece once in a while. If General Dargusch had served overseas and/or in combat, then this WWII uniform would be very pricey. But since he stayed in the US, the cost is minimal. This uniform would make a nice entry level piece for a collector on a tight budget.
