US WW2 M-1942 Jacket 101st Airborne
In a very good condition an original US 101st Airborne Division M42 paratrooper jacket. This jacket still has the original label present in the lower pocket and it is comming with a period sewed and appied (type 1) 101st Airborne patch and Corporal chevrons. On the inside it is clearly marked with a so called laundray number, no research has bin done by us yet. The jacket is comming with all working snaps and zippers , the main zippers is a bit corroded in the middle which makes it harder to open, this needs some tender love and care. The pockets are sewed flat which was a common practice, sometimes refererd to as an early kind of reinforing. A stunning 101st Airborne Division jacket for display and a great base for further research!
