    I stumbled across this M43 Field Jacket on eBay earlier today, it has a 101st airborne patch as well as a US flag patch. I believe the M43 Jacket is original; however, I have my suspensions about the US flag patch and perhaps if the 101st patch was added post-war? Any opinions on this would be much appreciated, it looks like there was an additional patch underneath the flag patch but I'm not sure what the patch would've been. Any help or info is always appreciated!

    I would say it was added post war. I think the flag patch is also a recent production.

    the flag has too many stars for a ww2 flag

    You are correct. I thought it was just the offset style. 50 stars.

    Field jacket looks fine, but the patches are post war added. If I had to guess this was made up for a re-enactor for Operation Market Garden period..

    US flag is a definite non WW2 period flag with the 50 stars..
