    G'day All

    Here's one I'm at stumps with! this US EM service jacket has a different wool mix material compared to normal US MFG + I don't recognize the button service branch.

    Could it possibly be a military lawyers tunic as the buttons appear to have the character holding the scales of justice??? Just a thought.

    On the right is the Lady of justice and above looks like the USMC symbol and below looks like it could be Christopher Colombus on his journey to the new world on the santa maria nina and the pinta.. But we have one to many ships then? Hope someone can help.

    My first time to see this button but then again, I do not collect US as much as other item's

    Right on! I was just about to post that the buttons have the seal of my home state, New York! Funny that the jacket was made in Jersey!

    Is the state guard an army reserve force of some kind?

    I believe most units pre war and pre WWI were state guard units and were then merged with others into military divisions. The 116th of the 29th ID goes back to the Revolutionary days as a state militia / guard.

    Pre war State Guard tunic. I remember seeing one or two of these back in the 1980's.

    Cheers, Ade.
