This auction is for one (1) original World War II United States Marine Corps Second Pattern Camouflaged Herringbone Twill Jacket. The jacket is in good used condition, an excellent example for your USMC collection. This is the same jacket as pictured on pg. 76 of Ken Lewis' Doughboy to GI.

The green camo side exhibits moderate fading; however, the brown camo side appears brighter. Two of the US Marine Corps buttons are missing on the front along with the one on the left sleeve, all of which have been replaced (one of which appears to be a Japanese tunic button); however, the lowest replacement button on the front is broken. T are a few small white paint stains on both sleeves, along with some pinhead-sized snags and holes to both sleeves. The lower left side of the green also has some pinhead-sized holes and snags.

Measurements are 19 inches from the armpit seam to the cuff seam, 27 inches from the collar to the rear hem, and approximately 45 inches around the chest and back when laid flat and measured.

Sold as is. Please refer to the photos. I've tried to accurately describe the item; however, I am not an expert on WW2 USMC items, so please ask questions prior to bidding. Thanks for looking.
