Genuine US Military issue

Circa. 1950s

The M-1951 field jacket carried over a number of design aspects and features from its predecessor, the M-1943. The overall design is very similar, with only a few key elements that were added or improved upon. The main front closure is secured with a chromed zip, covered by a snap-fastener-lined flap and the pockets are also secured with snap-fasteners.

The Olive Green 107 (OG-107) shell is a treated 9-ounce wind-resistant cotton sateen, lined with a lightweight wind-resistant cotton poplin. There are buttons that accommodate a removable insulated liner that can be attached for colder weather. During the 1960s, many officers preferred the sharper look of the M-1951 instead of the then-standard M-1965 jacket.

Good condition showing signs of real wear - All buttons, zips fittings, and fixtures are present and working. The Talon brand zip runs smoothly. The contract stamp is present and legible. There is sporadic staining and discolouration as seen. The right arm is heavily stained as seen. The right arm has a couple of small holes as seen.
