WW2 USA Manhattan Project Uniform to Authenticate

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone.  I have an opportunity to buy a uniform purported to be from a soldier serving during WW2's Manhattan Project.  The uniform seems to be in pristine condition.


In reality, it seems to be in too good of condition.  Please check the photos. Is everything in its proper place and look authentic?  For example, the three ribbon bars are separated.  Is this common?


Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks.  Linas

I don’t have a problem with it. Manhattan project ended in December of 1946, army commendation ribbon authorized in 1945 (although not seen worn usually until after WW2), ruptured duck honorable discharge patch stops being worn around 1946/1947. I think it’s all original.
