There is only 1 button of the 5 main front buttons. All the rest of the buttons on the jacket are there. All of the snaps on the liner and jacket are there and are all in fine condition. It still has the original outside waist belt. It has a Conmar marked zipper.The liner is removable by snaps. Something was spilled on it way in the past on the lower back.
It did not soak through to the inside. I tried water on it and it did not come out.The outer cuffs are frayed at their edges. The liner knit cuffs are fine and not stretched out. There is a little fraying by the middle front button hole. There are a few little tears and holes. See my photos with the white arrows. The liner has no holes or tear.
