    Or actually he told me he's going to Australia by email when he sold me the jacket. I know what being deployed means since I was in the RCN and he is living in a military area so I don't think he's lying. But it sure makes it convenient to not deal with this.

    I think you hit the nail on the head when you say, "irritated by the seller hiding the torn shoulder"

    I might just restore it if the seller doesn't get back to me

    Question about the bullion...
    What is the value of such a bullion patch? someone here mentioned its very valuable.
    Thx...
    Nice B-3, I am sure it can be restaured with a lot of patience and dedication.

    How much patience though? I can see spending 600 CDN dollars but other than that........

    If you mean the Irvin in the eBay auction you posted in the other thread just now and which Andrew has commented on, well if the measurements fit and you get it for a good price go for it if that's what you're after.

    If you want a real wartime original Irvin for wearing you're best to skip this and wait for that. You can always post a request for an original Irvin here and see what comes up. You are a smaller size am I right? If so you should have more opportunities and the prices will be better than larger jackets.

    Looks like the common bullion version of the CBI patch. Unless something has radically changed,not rare at all. I have them loose and on class A’s.
