15th USAAF Bullion Patch & ID Named to B-24 Pilot 783rd Bomb Sqd
This is a beautiful theater-made 15th AAF Bullion Patch named to B-24 Pilot Richard N. Gage, 783rd Bomb Squadron, 465th Bombardment Group. His leather military ID holder with an Identification Card is included, as well as a Reunion Brochure named to him. Patch is 2 3/4" in diameter and shows nice aging. The ID Holder is private purchase with the card that came with it filled in. The Brochure is from 2011, and unfortunately was damaged when I spilled a glass of orange juice near it.
