    Default Naval Deck Jacket

    I recently received a Naval Deck Jacket that belonged to my Great Uncle Abner.
    My father insists that he served during WWII in the Navy, and I am trying to authenticate it.
    It is in excellent condition, with the exception of the tag being slightly worn.
    I am posting two pictures, but if the experts need more to authenticate it, and give me a value, I will gladly post more.
    Thanking you all in advance...

    Hello John, One site I could suggest that could likely be more precise dating your jacket would be to try the US MILITARIA COLLECTORS FORUM These guys are pretty intense in reading codes and tags over there! Good luck!
