This uniform is of the 1950 to 1960 period. It is a US Army, M-1950 Pattern, "Jacket, Wool, O.D., M-1950". It is manufactured to "Spec. No.: MIL-J-10801 (QMC), Pattern Date: 1 Nov. 1950" or as it is often known as a "IKE" style of a jacket. The uniform is named inside to: "R. Brabeen B0523". This uniform is in EXCELLENT condition with no mothing except for 1 very tiny moth hole hidden on the back side of the right lower sleeve (it's almost impossible to see) and a 2nd tiny hole is found under the front flap and thus is invisible. Each upper collar lapel has Enlisted Man's brass discs for "US" and for service in the Armored/Cavalry branch of the service. They are of the rare semi domed (not flate or full domed) type. They are also of the clutch back style.

Each middle sleeve has the cloth rank stripes of a Corporal. Sewn near the top of the left sleeve is a 1st Armored Division cloth patch for current service. There is no evidence of any ribbon bard being worn. All buttons are present and match. They are sewn on with correct thread. The inside of the jacket is of the proper full lining type and is made of artificial silk. It too is in EXCELLENT condition (it has a stain or 2). Stapled to the lining is a correct style and period laundry tag with the name: "Brabeen R."inked on. Inked inside the inner neck area is his partial serial number of "B0523". This uniform includes his khaki color tie, and his December 22nd, 1950 dated, "Trousers, Field, Wool Serge, O.D.-33, 18 Oz., Patt. Date 20 Dec. 1945, Q.M. 8590, Spec. No. 8-152, N.Y.Q.M.P.A"

Comments From The Curator:

Here is a beautiful condition IKE jacket, from the WWII occupation to the Korean War period. It is a text book example of a M-1950 Pattern uniform. The fact that it is named, makes it all the more desirable. We have not had a chance to research this Tanker's military biographical information, thus the low price to you.
