United States Army Airborne M1942 Paratrooper Jump Jacket. The jacket consists of four front pockets with two button snaps on each. Also, there is a dual-zippered knife pocket located on the upper front center portion of the jacket which was designed to contain a switchblade pocketknife, used to cut the parachute rigging if entangled. The zippers on the knife pocket are both Talon marked. The jacket main zipper is marked Conmar and the zipper works fine. The jacket also has cloth belt as well. The contract tag located on the inside of the lower pocket is totally washed out where you cannot make out the contract dates or size information. There are holes/tears in each lower sleeve area. The interior jacket has a very faded military laundry mark near the back upper neck area. The edge of the neck area is very worn condition and very frayed and worn through at the edge. Also, frayed at bottom of jacket and sleeve areas as well. Very heavily worn and used condition.
Also, the jacket came in with it’s medals and patch as well (sorry, no other documentation or history with this one). The medals include a Purple Heart with case, good conduct medal, ww2 victory medal, and 82nd airborne patch.
