    I think it is a post war Korean - Vietnam era notice the pleated pockets this was only done on the first patern in WWII, but the first pattern was mre complex had more buttons and 2 waist straps. Is it HBT or sateen cotton?

    Also the plastic buttons are a red flag very few wartime HBTs hat plastic instead of the metal 13 star buttons, The only ones I know of were WAC hbts and some "special" hbts which meant they were coated with anti gas treatment.

    It is a HBT material and I know it came from a male veteran so it is probably post war.
