U.S. WW1 Army Engineers wool winter tunic and cap with patriotic framed picture of soldier wearing uniform. On one sleeve of tunic has cloth rank insignia (appears to been a two stripe corporal insignia with a single stripe added below to make it a three stripe Sergeant rank, probably additional field promotion). On the other sleeve is an Advanced Service of Supply shoulder sleeve insignia (patch) with a red discharge stripe below and one overseas stripes near end of the sleeve (each stripe represents 6 months service overseas). WW1 Allied Victory ribbon bar above one front pocket. Also, a U.S. and an Engineer EM Collar disk on collar. One lower pocket flap appears to be old replacement/repair that is different material than rest of tunic. Very worn condition with several scattered moth nips on tunic. Garrison cap (side cap) with Engineer disk on cap and with Philadelphia Quarter Master Depot contract tag on interior with size mark of 6 5/8. Also, named on interior of cap faded, however, appears to be E.Johnson.
