    Default U.S. National Guard field jacket

    I bought two field jackets today at a sale, and I was wondering if it's possible to identify the approximate timeframe for them. They both look the same, except one has the sleeve insignia for the Pennsylvania National Guard. I don't really think they have any value, but I only paid $1 each, so they'll be nice to wear around the house if they're very recent. Here are the photos:

    Thanks, Steve! I know nothing about U.S. military stuff, so apologies if that was a stupid question.

    Never stupid questions - we all have certain areas in which
    we collect and sometimes need help when we step
    outside our comfort zones.........

    Well, thanks again! I appreciate the help. I tend to specialize, so it's impressive that there are people here who have knowledge in a wide variety of fields.

    That was my thought when I got them, but for $1, they're nice for wearing in the winter. I love surplus stuff for use. Thanks for the input anyway!

    I believe they are "Fatigue shirts" and as Steve said 50's to mid 60's. Went to the subdued U.S.Army around 67. Pretty good for a buck each.

    Thanks for the correction! I really didn't know what to call them, but I thought 'field jacket' sounded about right.

    By the way, I mistyped in my first post; it was $1 for both, not that it makes much difference!
