Genuine US Army issue
Circa. 1940s - World War 2 era
A stunning genuine 1940s US Army Mackinaw jacket, sometimes referred to as a 'Jeep' coat due to the US Army drivers who wore these jackets prolifically throughout WW2. It has a 100% cotton wind-resistant poplin shell with a wool pile lining.
There is a 1st Infantry Division patch on the left shoulder, but this has been retro-fitted and has a post-war merrowed edge. Nevertheless, it adds an element of character and is an homage to the Division's wartime history.
Named to C. E. Smith under one of the closure main closure flaps, his service number is written just beneath his name which will certainly aid in researching who originally wore this piece.
In excellent condition with minor signs of wear - The belt is missing, but this does not affect general wear. All other buttons, fittings, and fixtures are present and working. There is some light sporadic staining/discoloration as seen.
