This uniform is dated 1983. It is a US Army, "Coat, Men's, Poly/Wool Serge AG-344", or "Coat, Man's, Army Green". It was manufactured to "ContractNo. 9037-83, 60% Polyester, 40% Wool, Defense Personnel Support Center". This uniform is in EXCELLENT PLUS condition with no mothing or stains. Each upper collar lapel has, proper period "US", and Armored/Cavalry, Enlisted Man's style metal discs that are clutch backs. Sewn on each sleeve are the cloth rank patches of a Staff Sergeant, or "E-6". There are 2 matching diagonal "slash" shape cloth patches sewn near the botton of the left sleeve for 6 years served. There is a proper style plastic name tag found pinned to the upper right breat with the name: "Dobson" engraved on it. The tag has proper clutches and attaching bar in back. The buttons are all of the 1 piece eagle types and appear all of the proper period and with hallmarks. The smaller pocket buttons are of a slightly different style on their back side. The large buttons are sewn on with proper thread and the smaller buttons are attached with common safety pins in back (a common occurance).
The lining is of the partial type and is in EXCELLENT condtion. The lining shows evidence of a left upper breast pocket badge at one time being pinned on as well as evidence of a ribbon bar over that same pocket. There is also evidence on the lining of a award ribbon being pinned over the upper right breast pocket. There is a large cloth size tag found sewn in the neck area. Sewn inside the inside pocket is a cloth tag delineating the contact information listed above. Sewn on the outside of the inner pocket is another cloth contract information tag. Found in a pocket is a correct period Armored Forces cloth patch with remnants of it's attaching threads still present. This uniform includes a pair of EXCELLENT condition, but oddly short, Enlisted Man's style trousers. They have a large cloth tag found sewn inside that lists much contract information. However, it is so faded that it will take a better pair of eyes than ours to read it now. They may have been added later as they are kinda short for the coat size.
Comments from the Curator:
This Armored/Cavalry uniforms was found in a local antique/junk shop about a year ago. We tried to locate the soldier in the local phone books but apparently Staff Sergeant Dobson has moved on. Finding the Armored Forces patch tucked well away in the pocket was all that it took to convince us to buy this uniform. While it is not fancy - it still is a desirable Tanker's uniform, probably to a Desert Shield/Storm veteran.
