Rare US Army M1951 field jacket. It features a green cotton Sateen shell with zip (Prentice) and popper fastening. Labels are all present and clear dating it to 1958 made by Southern Aviation. This one has a really nice colour lightly faded and first time Ive come across a stencilled one. Nice and clearly across the back ‘Company A USA Recsta’.
In great vintage condition. This piece is over 60 years old.
We consider wear and repairs part of the garments story but “flaws” of note are -
