Unknown coat-wwii(p42), later, or just hunting?

Recommended Posts

Found this in some of my old uniforms. Unfortunately, no tag. Not sure of the period or if even military. Buttons have me thinking military.

I have one of these. I got mine from a person selling them from a small-budget movie that used them to simulate WW2 USMC uniforms. May be a common reproduction used for movies.

The WWII era Burst of Glory tack buttons are found on the commercially/civilian produced camo hunting and even fatique clothing from the 50s-60s era. The buttons were apparently surplused and or sold to various commercial work/sporting cloths manufactures back in those days.

The commercially Fatique shirts and pants were these tack buttons are used I might add could and were bought and worn by Officers and men in the 50s, both the HBT 1947 pattern or the OD Cotton Sateen version of this pattern, they were sold Army-Navy Stores nation wide, and even PXs Army wide could be found selling them as well.

 

Here's one in Cotton Sateen that's been striped of it's insignia, note the ghosting of the chest tapes, and the GI QM Laundry tag inside. On this one, the buttons were unpainted leaving them all in a steel like color that has some of the corroded.

Interesting discussion. This whole area is new to me. Did GI clothing use the tack buttons on OD-107s, or is that one of the give-aways of a commercial piece?

The Cotton Sateen ones that start to be seen from 1952-53 on tend to have plastic sewn on buttons if in the majority of cases, it's the earlier M1947 HBT shirts that one will see an assortment of buttons, Burst of Glory tack buttons, both Black and or OD, sometimes unpainted, though this is rarer, normally they are painted, Plastic buttons, and a pattern of tack button I call the Laurel Leaf and Stars type, these also will be ether Black or OD or even unpainted, and an Unpainted Silver colored one on a GI issue shirt HERE. This last one, the Laurel Leaf and Stars type does show up on some commercially OD Sateen shirts too, painted or unpainted an example of a Brown-sh OD painted Laurel Leaf and Stars on a commercial sateen shirt HERE.

Here's a matching set of the Army-Navy Store Sateens, with Black Burst of Glory buttons, note the use of the commonly used light drab threads throughout on the shirt and trousers.
