M42 Jump Jacket

Article about: I just bought this off of another forum today and I am so excited! The zipper is most likely period replaced and it has remnants of once having a name tape, 101st patch, and a sergeant rank.

    Very nice piece. Would be good to know who the laundry mark actually was, but it looks salty original and great with your collection.
    Im already in the process of trying to identify him. Without knowing a name and where the vet was from its pretty difficult. I ran a laundry number search and two pages of vets came up with 57 vets with the same number. Since I know he was in the 101st I just need to find some rosters.

    You can use the term "When it rains it pours" in collecting too! Just got two 82nd jackets that are most likely from the same vet (not related to the jump jacket). Same rank, awards, size, & division. I have been waiting for a 504th item for more than two years and Im stoked to finally snag something! If you guys are interested I can take more photos and make a new thread tomorrow!
