Genuine US Military issue

Dated 1953

The M-1951 field jacket carried over several 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 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.

Very good condition with minor signs of wear - All buttons, zips, fittings and fixtures are present and working. The contract stamp is present and legible.  There is some discolouration and staining as seen.
