Item #55 - Nice 8th Air Force Officer's coat named to "J. J. Kostal". From my research I believe this is  Captain Jerome J Kostal who was a bombardier with the 306th BG.  There is a lot of information regarding him online and after hours searching I did not find another J Kostal. The coat is in very good shape and one button will need to be re-sewn as it has come loose. The pilot's wings are marked sterling and these along with the lieutenant's bars would have to be replaced if wanting to restore this uniform.  Either way a nice looking piece for your 8th Air Force display. $250
