WW2 US USMC Jacket

Article about: I like used, but perhaps a bit too "dog eared" for my tastes. Unless of course I knew exactly who wore it and where. Cheers, Ade.

    Rene,I have friends that were in the 'Corp during 'Nam. They were looking for the H.B.T.'s so they would look like old salts. Your statement about the repro shirt is not good.

    So far it is.
    I have to wait a few more hours, 12 to be precise.

    A few of the more recent WWII movies, made here in the states, created a big market for "Movie Props". I've seen several H.B.T. jackets at local shows that are aged and made to look the part. I'm sure a mess of these are floating around being passed off as authentic. Just a heads up.

    So, by the number of pockets, its possible to determine the period.
    I was unware of that.
    Thanks Steve.
    Sorry it took so long to get back to you buddy.
    The 3 pocket is WWII. 2 pocket are post war. You will find 3 pockets that have a pocket removed but usually you can tell by the color difference. Field modifications were common. Hope this helps you friend. I would dig a 3 pocket out but I'll be damned if I can remember where I have put them.
