OVERCOAT – WWI USMC FORREST GREEN TRANSITIONAL: THIS IS UNMARKED BUT IS A VERY EARLY ONE (17-18 PERIOD). THE GREEN COLLAR AND FRONT FLAPS ARE BACKED WITH ARMY KHAKI WOOL AND THE REAR BELT LOOP HOLDER IS KHAKI WOOL. POINTED CUFFS ARE NARROW.

IT SHOWS GOOD FIELD USE ON EXTERIOR (WOOL WORN SMOOTH – FEW SNAGS AND MOTH SPOTS – NOTHING REAL SERIOUS) AND INTERIOR (LINING SHOWS USE AND IT IS “UCI” COSTUME MARKED – WHICH SAVED IT). SIZE ABOUT 38-40. OVERALL VG
