Rare 1930's US Army Air Corps uniform dress coat. It was her husbands grandfathers (he was 90). He wore this pre WW2. This rare piece is in amazing condition, no holes, tears, no issues were found.It's made from a heavy quality worsted wool fabric in olive drab. It features four front pockets with rounded button flaps with gold American eagle buttons. Four gold American eagle buttons close the notched collar jacket. The jacket features shoulder epaulets, a half back belt and a back center vent. The jacket also has two gold US pins on the collar making it even more rare. The jacket also has four patches which add to the specialness and value of the coat. The patches on each shoulder represent a corporal. The four gold stripes patch represents 24 months combat service in World War 2. The round patch with stars and lighting bolt represents the US Pacific Forces.
What a piece of history! The coat is marked a 39 Regular.
30 from shoulder to bottom. Which would be about a men's medium in today's sizing or a women's large. This is a vintage preowned item and some normal wear is to be expected. Any issues, flaws found will be noted in the listings.
I love that we are giving yesterday's fabulous items a new life today!
