On a local second-hand market I found wonderful "Chocolate chips" jacket, a 6 Color Desert Сombat Uniform dated 1984.
Size: Small - Regular,
Material: 50% Cotton 50% Nylon Twill
Contract #: DLA100-84-C-0726
Manufacturer: Terry Manufacturing Co., Inc.
Particularities: Elvis collar + inside liner in the upper back + reinforced elbows
I tried to find out if it's real one or copy.
On the web-site: https://sites.google.com/site/unitedstatesmilitarycollection/desert-uniforms
I found some contradictional info, and that's really strange.
Desert uniforms (DCU) - DESERT 6 colors "Chocolate chip"
Coat, Desert Camouflage Pattern; Combat (desert 6 colors)
According to the site, the Contract # (DLA100-84-C-0726) corresponds to the Manufacturer (Terry Manufacturing Co., Inc.) - that's true and is seen on the tags inside,
this manufacturer produced only X-Small - Short sized jackets with NSN:8415-01-102-6758.
The Size (Small - Regular) and NSN:8415-01-102-6762, indicated on my jacket, correspond to another contract manufacturer - "Selma Apparel Corporation".
Another interesting fact: in a lower cargo pocket I found a small brand-new piece of paper with inscription "INSPECTED BY 10".
Any ideas, what's the matter and what it ould be?
Thanks in advance for any comments and/or suggesions!
