    Found this at a yard sale. Seems legit, wondering if it's authentic but not getting my hopes up. Haven't been able to figure out what the shoulder pins mean yet.

      Well for WWI it has no signs of wear anywhere. Not on the sleeve cuffs, not around the button holes. Kind of looks brand new doesn't it? Perhaps it was never worn. Who knows?
    2. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 3 years ago
      Bobby725 yes they are captains bars
    3. fhrjr2 fhrjr2, 3 years ago
      The war service chevrons are correct both in color and placement as per regs back then

      Yes, the lack of wear seems very odd. Perhaps it was just never worn, or else it's a very good replica.

      What does it look like on the inside? Any labels?
    6. coletaylor017, 3 years ago
      No labels that I can find.

      Looks to be a WW1 Captains uniform jacket from the US Army as others have said.

      The lack of labels may not be an issue. I have been reading an article on the manufacturing of WWI uniforms. It seems a vast majority of the uniforms made were actually sent to both England and France and completed there and were Not marked/labeled. The article states:

      The U.S.military was completely sold on the design of the British tunic. Much of the clothing manufactured for American soldiers was completed in England---and even in France.

      Both the tunic and overcoat were similar for officers and enlisted men. And this applied to the winter wool and summer weight uniforms. Pockets, high collars and shoulder straps were identical for all ranks.

      That is from the history of American Wars/WWI uniforms.

      Wow, I agree with everyone else, if it's og, it's beyond luck to find in that condition. Too bad the pants weren't with it. In fact, what I do know, is that's where the money is, in the pants because it's very rare to find them. But this is super find anyway!
    10. scottvez scottvez, 3 years ago
      Not that unusual to find the pants-- they are readily available. During the Civil War era, the pants were often used after muster out/ post war, so there are few surviving examples and they do bring very good money.

      I have about 8-10 WW1 uniforms-- most are complete with jacket and pants.
