Please also post some info about the dates and styles of the coats and label photos if you have them. That will help other perhaps ID ones they have.

 

thanks...

Ricardo,

 

Your Army Air Force coat is a Mackanaw. Is there a date on the quartermaster tag? There were several versions of these Mackanaws but I think yours is the 1942 model.

WWII US Women's Naval Reserve enlisted overcoat.

There are no other labels or markings other than the one shown below. The veteran was a Pharmacist mate 2nd Class, but there is no evidence of any ratings or other insignia being sewn on.

Some very nice overcoats have been shown. Overcoats are hard to display but some are quite interesting.

 

Here is an interesting Constabulary overcoat. It has an unreadable ordnance tag in the lining and brass buttons.

The brass buttons are all made by Firmin of London. I suspect that the Constabulary Trooper changed out wartime plastic buttons for private purchase British buttons made of gilt brass.

I only have a couple of interesting ones.

 

This one doesn't seem too interesting, just a ruptured duck, but...

it's named to my grandpa, and it's the only time I've ever seen him write his real name, Deforest. I have drawings of his from when he was a little kid that he signed as "Skip", as that has been his nickname since he was young.

Nothing rare but interesting nonetheless.
USAAF overcoat with lapels buttoned over themselves. It also has a ruptured duck. It is size 44R and extremely heavy.

Uh oh... my mistake. The first photo is of a USFA Private's overcoat. Here is a front view of the USFA Corporal's coat. Oh well, two for the price of one. thumbsup.gif

This is my 28th Infantry Division overcoat. Made by Jules Segal in 1941. I found this coat in a region where elements of this division stayed after they left the Hürtgen forrest and before leaving to Luxembourg.
