Need help with US Army blanket


Recommended Posts

I got this new in the bag US Army blanket from the same dealer I purchased the two cots that I listed last week. He informed that he got all the items from the same estate sale and everything was Vietnam War related. Obviously I don't want to open the bag and my questiion is can anyone possibly tell me what era the blanket is from by the information on the tag in the bag? Thanks!

if the tag matches the blanket, the 11digit NSN puts its late 50s to early 1970s?? I think they switched to the 13 digit NSN in 74 ish

 

The bag is sealed so I cannot look at the tag on the blanket itself without tearing open the bag. With that said I have to go on the information you provided, which I appreciate. Thanks!

I have WWII vintage personal equipment issued and used during VN. With regard to this bagged blanket, I'd be comfortable stating it was issued for use during VN, along with the cots you got.
