Marine Corp Uniform

Post by FreemanOrrin1942 » 23 Feb 2020 01:36

Hi guys I was wondering if I you could tell me if this Marine Corp Uniform is authentic or not there is no tags anywhere. It came with pants but they are a slightly different color. So I don’t know. If you guys could tell me era and value also. I don’t figure it to be worth much.

It appear as an original jacket ( USMC Vandegrift jacket ). I think WWII/ Korea period
Colour is called Forest Green

Would date 1945 thru Korean War.... But considered post WW 2. As is with just rank patches and EGAs worth about $50.00 but can be had for less.

One last question is is typical to not have any manufacturer tags on these era. I thought that was a little weird about that.

Usually these types would only have a size tag.... Markers info. and dates are often in the shoulder sleeve linings (stamped).

Ok, the uniform has a size tag on the collar but no quartermaster tag, the soldier's name is stamped on the pants and jacket both but other than that no other markings.
