WWI officers overcoat 77th Division


Recommended Posts

I just added this incredible coat to my displays and archive. i was able to get it through a friend. I have never seen one of these in person, only in pictures and its in wonderful shape. Just wanted to share it with everyone because I am very excited about being the its caretaker. I hope you like it.
