Vintage M-1951 Fishtail Parka with Attached Hood and Heavy Liner (removable). Size Large, but was designed to fit loose for easier mobility.I did a little research and found out this liner is 60% wool and 40% cotton. The cotton is shiny with a tight weave... Sateen cotton is commonly used in bed sheets for silk-like comfort, durability, and nice looks.
There are a couple of stains on the shiny side of the liner but the wool side is in mint condition and looks great as Seen in Pics. The zipper works fine but may need to be wax treated at some point. All the snaps and brown buttons are intact.All labels and are pretty readable. There are some marks on the exterior from age and use. You can see some light and dark marks on the exterior of shell in the pics which may be able to be cleaned but not guaranteed. See Pics and Use Zoom. For the years and things this coat has been through it is in Overall Good Condition and would be a Great Addition for Anyone. Liner and Shell Size Large (Chest 41 - 45).
