One of the most iconic pieces of WW2 clothing, famous as much for it's long march across Europe as it is for Brad Pitt's turn as Wardaddy in the 2014 film Fury! What many people might not know, is that the name Tanker was only really applied post war, these were officially known as Jacket Winter, Combat. This is an example of the first pattern, and it is one of the hardest to find pieces of US Army WW2 clothing.

Condition

This is in good solid condition, but clearly had a run-in with a moth or two. The jacket itself is great, the outer-shell is in great shape, the original talon zipper is perfect, and includes a grenade ring-pull, plus the lining has a couple of areas of wear/moth bites, but no major issues. The knits are a bit salty, but they are original, and given they're still pretty wearable I'm not inclined to replace them. When I bought this it came with deadstock 2nd Armoured & Staff Sergeant patches, and I've found some original (yes these ww2 made!!) replacement tanker cuffs. I'll include all of these with the jacket.
