1930s Red Head half moon hunting / fishing vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271420560900
This vest was made in the 1930s by Red Head Brand and was sold by the R.S. Elliott Arms Co. of Kansas City, MO. This style has come to be known as a half-moon hunting vest, after its pass through pocket. Period advertisements generally referred to this style as a sleeveless jacket rather than as a vest. This one has pleated, flapped patch pockets on the front and back, as well as two patch pockets on the lining. The half-moons pass through to the roomy internal game pocket, which closes with a button.

Chest (pit to pit): 22-1/2″ (doubled = 45″)
Length: 27″
