    Hi guys,

    I picked this up the other day because it fits me like a glove, and original 42R uniforms are hard to come by. It's a USMC P44 top with rare economy steel buttons, supposedly used by a particular manufacturer to finish out a contract on time. It's named to a MGySgt. Wilbur T. Allen (839344, MOS 826 Aviation Supply Man), who I managed to research and find a bit of info on:

    Wilbur T Allen
    Muster Date: Oct 1943
    Rank: Corporal
    Station: Headquarters Squadron, Marine Aviation Detachment, Nts, San Diego, California

    Wilbur T Allen
    Muster Date: Jul 1945
    Rank: Staff Sergeant
    Station: Vmf-524 Mag-52 9Maw Fmf Mcaaf Congaree South Carolina

    Wilbur T Allen
    Muster Date: Jul 1955
    Rank: Master Sergeant
    Station: Vmf 351 Omcr (Avn), Mcas Cherry Point Nc Nas Atlanta Ga

    The top was made during WWII, but it was probably issued to him in the 50's considering his rank at the time. Enjoy!

    Hi,

    A nice example.

    However the pocket flap is removed. That's the only "flaw".

    That's why it took me so long to figure out what model it was. lol... I finally noticed the stitching above the pocket.
