Item details

Simply the best and coolest 1950s US military souvenir jacket you will ever find!

It is a reversible jacket (not all of them were) from 1961, with tanks on both sides! Most precisely a M-55 8" self-propelled Howitzer from the 83rd Field Artillery Regiment (2nd Howitzer Battalion). If you look closely at the larger tank on the back, you will see in smaller light blue stitching the actual number of the tank which was assigned to the owner of the jacket from 1959 to 1961.

I would say the size is somewhere between M and L. But don’t take my word for it, check carefully the measurements that appear on one of the photos, and compare them to a similar jacket that you may have. I do not accept returns, so please double check measurements from the photo.

I would personally say it in superb condition, and way better than other ‘50s-mid ‘60s US military souvenir jackets I’ve seen. Keep in mind it does have a few marks of wear, small tears and small stains (which may or may not come off). Please check carefully the photos for defects.

Defects I have spotted (there may be others I have missed):

BLACK SIDE:
- 2 small holes in the right hand side knitted cuff.
- 1 small hole in the left hand side knitted cuff.
- 1 small hole in the knitted waistband (left hand side near the front).
- 2 scuffs on the front, on the right hand side near the zip.

WHITE SIDE: A few light stains here and there that you should see on the photo. Also, some dirt near the bottom (front), could do with some cleaning (with no guarantee it will clean up).

I can provide with more photos if you want.

The jacket is free of odor, very enjoyable to wear.

Weight: 1111 grams.
