WWII U.S. NAVY "PEA COAT" -- ALL ORIGINAL AND PROPERLY MARKED

REDUCED Sales Price- $195--No PayPal payments or checks. Please don't ask. The Buyer will appear in person and pay in CASH ONLY.

Coat belonged to Louis Langlois (his name inside) who saw service in Pacific (1941-1945) under Admiral Raymond Spruance's Flag.

No damage whatsoever to the item, so it has kept well over the years. The pictures are complete and accurate, although the coat is a dark blue. The flash on the picture makes it look "grayer" than it actually is. All original with everything in place -- everything right. The photos are provided to demonstrate the A-1 condition of this coat. Everything is original, including every single button, which makes the entire coat original.

INSCRIPTIONS: "Manufactured by NAVAL CLOTHING FACTORY" and has "LANGLOIS, L 196" Certain folks who follow my ads have written to advise that the "196"is for the veteran's recruit division number when he went to boot camp. That’s when those numbers are issued and all recruits inscribe their division number in them. Being as this prior owner was in the Pacific, the "pea coat" was probably never was even used after the initial fitting. It certainly looks it as there is only the lightest signs of use on this jacket.

SIZE: There is no size info I can see but it was NOT made for a larger guy. If you're a 40R or better, you are likely to big for this coat.

VERY COLLECTIBLE and an awesome memento from the second World War.
