Our ongoing adventure finding un. Connecting great people with unique, often hard to find treasures..Original Salem Vintage Military Fishtail Parka M1951 Parka Shell, M1951 Alpaca/Wool Liner 1951 Korean War Issue Small, (Fits Like a Medium-Large) Cold Weather Gear. US Military, Salem Liner - M1951 Shell. Gold/Green Liner with Alpaca Fleece Against the Shell. Size/Measurements: Men's Small-Fits Like a Medium-Large.
Chest Width: 23" Shoulder Width: 22" Length: (Bottom of Collar to Jacket Bottom) Sleeve Length: 23. Cold weather M1951 parka shell with M1951 Liner. The shell is like a thick poplin material with seven snaps that cover a thick metal zipper that requires regular waxing according to the instructions printed on the jacket. It still zips up smoothly now.The hood has a thick lace pull and heavy leather buckles for tightening. The shoulders also have button down epaulettes. The sleeves also have center straps to keep your sleeves down, (just a guess here). There is one button missing at the end of the left sleeve.
The liner is a wool blended with alpaca fleece. The wool is against the body while the fleece is between the jacket and the liner. The only other place that I can see any wear is the liner is pretty frayed on the right side edge.
