Any insight on what US Army blankets would look like from the 1910's? Most the ones I see are USMC or post war.

 

Thanks- Cote1918

Thanks for the pictures, they were very similar to civil war blankets just different color schemes it seems.

Also as I understand the blankets were first produced in Olive drab in 1905. 

 

Here is some interesting information on the evolution of the early blankets showing changes etc

It seems as though every blanket I get is different. Only the green one is dated - 1982
