    Hello,  I have a chance to purchase a few items and was wondering if anyone could help with identifying if they are original or reproductions.   I have done some research, but have not come up with anything conclusive, and have limited knowledge of this time period of uniforms.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

    the top one looks right, it's army, but it's been a long time since I handled ww2 camo. The patches are of course not correct.

    Not so sure about the lower one which is cut like a marine raider smock.

    Here's a link to a repro USMC:

    Top piece is a current reproduction top, probably from WW2 impressions...a nice repro, but a repro indeed.

    Second set, Para-Marine smock/trousers/hat. No, nope, uh-uh. All matching wear, matching size no doubt, no rusted or missing snaps, and associated with something I believe was an Army issue item (and very limited at that) the camo hat. It's an older repro, late 90's I believe. Real ones are extremely rare, and tend to be in ratty condition at best. Also almost never found as a set.

    Pay repro prices for these or let them go by.
