    The model is the 1941. As far as authenticating it I think it looks pretty good. USMC HBTs were mostly stamped rather than fitted with sewn tags like the army version and these mostly fade. Most reproductions however are made with cheaper cotton that is not high grade Egyptian and mercerized which would be much more expensive to make but is what the originals were made from. Hence after multiple washings the repro will tend to pill and the herringbone weave will not be as visible. I think this example looks pretty good since it has obvious wear and the twill has not become fuzzy.
