This is a US Military Issued Korean War Era OD Green Fishtail Parka. The parka is dated 1951 and is a size Medium. Remember that these parkas are cut really big so to fit over the US Army uniform. With that said, laying flat on the floor it measures 27" from underarm to underarm and it measures 40" from the bottom of the collar down to the bottom of the front.
It also measures 23 from the shoulder down to the bottom of the sleeve. As far as the condition is concerned the parka has a couple of small holes on the bottom back of the parka and grease stains on the outside of the arms between the wrist and elbow. There are more stains on the right arm, see photo.
It has faded evenly overall and the liner has some tears on the back, see photo. There is one button missing where the liner buttons in and the zipper works.
With that said overall the parka is in pretty decent shape. So please ask any and all questions and if you need any other measurements please ask. Please take a look at the other military as well as other items that I have up and ask any and all questions.
