WWII USMC Tech Sgt 5th Marine Div. Paramarine
There are dream uniforms and there are dream uniforms. This is one of those uniforms that Iwo Jima and Paramarine collectors would like to have in their collections and the price that sold for this was reflected in the high dollar sale. This one is such one coat. Let the jacket this speak for itself. Most importantly we must not forget it was one Marine who earned all what is shown on this coat. What a Marine! This jacket was indeed named to a Technical Sgt. who was at Iwo Jima and jump qualified. An incredible coat from a vet from one of the finest divisions of the war.
