    Default Wanting info on reversible camo HBT ww2 sniper jacket.

    Hi,

    I'm new here and hoping that its ok to ask for some info straight off. I've had this jacket for a while and I wanted to sell it to someone who would appreciate it but find I have no idea of its value. I came across some posts on the US militaria forum here - http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/foru...iform-2-piece/

    It seems its a british made jacket and was issued for a short time before being withdrawn. Then used later in Indonesia by the French.

    I tried to sign up to the other forum to ask a few questions there but for some reason my account never gets approved. Thats when I found this place and the goldmine of info you have. I couldn't find anything about this jacket on your forums.

    Does anyone here have an idea of the rarity of it and the sort of value I should put on it? I get the impression from the posts I've read that it can be quite sought after.

    I can put up some pictures of the actual jacket I have later but the condition is similar to the one in the pictures on that thread I linked.

    Thanks muchly in advance.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    It is indeed a rare bit of kit.

    I do not know a current value, sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here is a link to more information about the sniper jacket on the Imperial War Museum site. - http://www.iwm.org.uk/collections/item/object/30100058

    If anyone has any more information on this jacket, however obscure, please let me know. I would be very interested in learning more about its provenance.

    Since this is such a uncommon piece this is something that depends on who you are selling it too, I would think this would be worth around 1000 to 2000 USD
