Forest Service Stratton Campaign Hat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281693447638
This hat was made by Stratton for the US Forest Service. It is made from Stratton’s heavyweight fur felt. Originally, it was flanged similar to a fedora, rather than the flat brim of Army or Park Service campaign hats, and had a center dent. It has been re-creased, and the brim has been re-shaped through wear. It is a 7-3/8.

1918 dated WWI army overcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281645258225
This vintage overcoat was made in 1918 by Cohen Endel . . . of New York and was distributed by the New York Depot quartermaster. The coat is double breasted, with a belted back and buttoned throat latch. There is a secondary stamp from the New York Depot, stamped Marvin Falk and what looks like 1933. The belt-back is is sewn over the tag and lining, and from its construction, looks like it may have been added later. There is a army air corps patch on the shoulder, obviously added later than WWI, however if the coat was re-issued in the 1930s, it would likely have been added at that point. The As is typical of coats of this period, it is only partially lined.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″” (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 38″
