Been collecting for most of my life and never owned one of these. This one came up at an auction and paid too much, but oh well. Now I have one. Zipper is shot and it’s worn, but it has character. It is named to a Sanborn with laundry mark of S4248. I think I’ve figured out... Harold M Sanborn, Jr. of Florida (born in New York) - 34404248. Did every Google trick I know and have been unable to find a tie to him to the Tank Destroyers.... maybe someone can help? Enjoy the pics. Thx.Posted Image

Theres a Harold M Sanborn, Jr. 1912-2002 buried in Florida. This matches the NARA entry where I got the serial number (birth year and Florida connection).... assuming that is the right guy.

Nice jacket!  I like M41's. I wouldn't keep it too long on that wire hanger but would look for something that gives it more support.
