I have for sale a vintage set of USMC Marine Corps dress blues from the Korean War. FIRST you will notice in the pictures a brass button missing from the left sleeve. I HAVE THAT BUTTON and have replaced it. It fell off as I was hanging it up to take the picture. You get the Gunny Sergeant stripes and longevity stripe and the metal USMC insignia. You even get the metal collar hardware that is often missing with these uniforms. You get the wool jacket and trousers. No belt, gloves or cover. This lot came from the estate of D. Conrad of Clinton County Pennsylvania. Conrad was a sergeant in the First Division during the Korean Conflict.

The size information is as follows:

SLEEVE length is 26 inches
