Rare US Marine Core M1951 field jacket. inlike the army version It features a green cotton nylon shell which makes it much lighter and the colour and feel is so much nicer in my opinion. Fastens with zip (Conmar) and popper fastening. Printed Spec is present and clear dating it to 1951 made by LW foster. This one has a really nice colour which is perfectly faded.
In great vintage condition. This piece is over 70 years old.
