Coming Soon! original M1948 US Fishtail Parka with real fur hood VERY Rare!!
This was the US Army’s no expense spared fishtail parka, patten date M-1948, adopted in 1949 and approved 25th July 1950 and made for one year only in the same year. The Parka-shell was made of wind-resistant cotton sateen in Olive Drab shade 107 and featured a snap and slide fastener closure heavily offset to the left for snorkel fit when done up, slit front pockets, and a patch pocket on the upper left sleeve for pencils and cigarettes. The hooded parka liner was composed of wool-pile cloth in Olive Drab shade 30A.
The finest ever produced fishtail parka!! Even back in the early sixties these parka’s were rare and sought after because they were only in made for one year due to their high production costs. These are extremely rare!
The M48 parka liner is virtually impossible to find these days.
These collector pieces are so rare that they cost a small fortune.
