I recently grabbed this grouping and am quite happy with it. It is difficult to find Span Am Marine material, and a khaki tunic from that periord was needed to fill a gap in my Marine uniform pre WWII display. This tunic came with a fair amount of paperwork and photographs that identify the owner of the tunic as Perry Daubenfeld. Perry entered the Marines in 1901, rising to rank of Corporal in 1904 and was discharged in 1905. He led an interesting life, moving on to the Illinois National Guard where he rose to rank of Captain and then served as a Captain in WWI with the 132nd infantry. His service record with the Marines is recorded in some of the paperwork I received in the grouping as well as his muster records on Ancestry. He spent considerable time in the Philippines.
Here is the tunic that came with the grouping. I really like the tunic, it "feels" right. It has a nice set of period correct USMC Cpl. stripes (a little dingy from some old water stains) and a complete set of matching Horstmann back marked Marine brass buttons. I found a very faded and difficult to see name hand written under one pocket flap that the seller missed (he said it was un-named). I can just make out the first half of the name which "P Daub" which is a match. There are no other markings in the tunic.
