Genuine US Military issue

A very lovely second pattern HBT jacket from the late World War 2 era. These jackets were worn by US troops from 1943 until the end of WW2 and throughout the Korean War. This example has been modified for post-war use by shortening the pockets.

Made from a soft selvedge cotton herringbone twill fabric with two chest pockets. This shirt features metal '13-Star' buttons and displays lovely, original insignia including Hawaiian Department SSI, Sergeant 1st Class rank chevrons, silk US Army branch tape and a stamped black-on-white name tape.

In excellent overall condition with minor wear from use - All buttons, fittings, and fixtures are present. There is some light wear on the collar as seen. There are some light stitch marks from the replaced pockets.
