M4 field jacket

Article about: Hello, I am about to get this field jacket, which looks good to me, but since these are quite scarce, I'd be glad to have other opinions and comments. Many thanks,

    Real Steel, thanks for the insights.
    Only seen on a late war M43 SS.
    Are you saying it is a late war production ?
    I was thinking, it was made early 43, because of the "silk like" lining. Some other tunics I saw were made with a grey "fish bone" lining - italian cloth I think - which I believe to be late war.

    I may be wrong in all points though ...

    I consider an M43 cut tunic "late war" due to it being the last model tunic (other than the unpopular & not often seen 44) produced. Not sure about rayon type lining indicating time period made. That I don't know.

    In general, herringbone cotton is a feature of early tunics, while the rayon type began to replace it by late 1942.

    Got your points. I was thinking of the HBT cloth pictured below when saying "fish bone" cloth.

    The other lining cloth which was used for M43 tunics (that I called "fish bone") is this one:

    I think it appeared after (44?) the rayon lining.
