WWII US Field Jacket M43- 1943

Top Rated


The uniform was tested in Italy in 1943 but some GIs claim that non-combatant officers and enlisted personnel would use their position in the rear to get the new uniform, delaying the ultimate field testing in Italy for some time longer. This, along with shipping delays after D-Day kept this uniform from widespread use in Europe until late 1944. After D-Day, Paratroopers were issued complete M1943 uniforms, and infantry units began getting the uniform parts here and there.

WWII US Field Jacket M43- 1943


Unfortunately its original owner has never been identified. The jacket clearly shows marks that it was worn intensively during WWII but possibly also after the war.

Right sleeve shows holes at the cuff plus multiple tiny holes from wearing. Not mint condition but 100% original.
