An original 1952 issue M-1951 Korean War US Army poplin cotton fishtail parka shell with Crown zipper. Made in USA by Woodbury MFG. It is in good vintage condition with a little staining, a small hole in the back, a frayed shoulder seam and a couple of areas of missing seam stitching that might need repairing.
Half way up the zip there are a few teeth missing, i haven't tried to zip past this point as there is a chance it will make it worse, please be aware of this. The waist cord is missing. Please see all images to get a complete picture of the condition. The original size stencil reads Medium and there is a white tab over the top that reads Small so please follow the measurements to ensure the right fit. M-51 parkas are traditionally worn very oversized so measurements come up big, so to ensure the desired fit please follow the exterior measurements.
