Original USMC 1947 Model Lined Parka Korean War. During that first brutal Winter in North Korea the Marines who were lucky enough to have a parka were issued these. Sometimes called the "Navy" parka....
Maybe because it was made to a Navy pattern, they were made at the USMC Phila Supply Depot. Although superceded by the M1951 parka they remained in the Marine supply system as unit issue up until the'60's, rare to find in any good condition as were made in small number. Large size Im 6ft and is big on me.
Only a few small defects small rip in the back thats been repaired and a very faint stain on the rear see pictures and the liner has a little wear but on the bottom of it. Hard to find original item would go great with any Korean War USMC display or collection.
