So, either highway robbery or somebody who got a deal and now wants rto profit form it or, as suggested, a 'bugger off it's not really for sale' price. I do take all sorts, don't it? :)

Rauchtran - the jacket, from what I can see, is a WWII British tunic with Polish paratrooper insignia on it.

"perhaps Yank optics were found to be better that Brit ones"

The badge seems to depict the Maginot Line, but I don't think its French artillery, so I suspect it is a sweetheart or, more likely, a patriotic pin sold to raise money for the war effort.

My last post was written before I saw the 'sunny' pictures! The dog certainly seems to be contemporaneous with the rest of the paint job. Wonderful find! Thanks for sharing.
