WW2 USAAF Overcoat

Recommended Posts

Here is a mint condition WW2 United States Army Air Force (USAAF) Overcoat. The USAAF was created on June 20, 1941, succeeding the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). This particular model overcoat is a pre-WW2 model, as indicated by its date. In 1942 the brass buttons were replaced with greenish/brown colored plastic versions as brass was needed for the war effort. The pre-war models are very heavy and thick and made very well, later models began to cut back on these features also. Typically on the overcoats, a division or unit insignia was worn on one or both sides of the shoulder and enlisted chevrons were worn on the sleeves. These coats are still easy to find, however they are getting hard to find in mint or unissued condition. Also there are reproductions being made as well.
