1935 tagged US Army coat. What model?


Recommended Posts

Saw this coat in a local antique store. Quartermaster tag is dated 1935.

 

What model would this be? And it's really nice. looks a lot warmer than a regular field jacket. Would this.. OR I just I should ask, Could this have been worn into WW2?

I think this is a first pattern Mackinaw, made them in Wool at first before going with the more familiar Fabric with Wool collar type. It looks similar in cut to the Officers type, but those were made not made in Course Wool as seen here, but with fine Moleskin cloth and had fancier buttons.

 

Here's one image I found of the Wool one like yours.

Found another one of this type on the Forum, no definite ID is given for it, just the questioned asked and the reply of it either a Mackinaw or a M-1926 Officers Short Overcoat, which its neither, it is however we found just like the WWI Mac, the 1935 date? Maybe just a Spec Update???

The WWI one, it differs outwardly only by having Cuff straps,, larher patch pockets on the skirt, slightly different buttons, and slightly different belt.
