What an unbelievable find indeed!

These ponchos appear to have been produced for the US Military during WWII never to be issued!

Extremely rare in unissued condition, these reversible Desert/Jungle Marine ponchos have a plainly visible stamping showing the date of manufacture.

As we understand it, these were sent over to Europe during the War, and just never got issued. Recently uncovered still in the original shipping crates, there is a very small lot of these available in this "like new" condition.

Fabric only shows slight fading and of course the creases where each has been sitting folded, untouched for almost 70 years! So many times, things made of wood and metal have survived the war in only fair condition, but to find something new/unused made of cloth almost never happens.

Collectors, this is your opportunity to own a piece of history that won't be seen again. Measures 5 feet by 7 feet. Supplies are extremely limited!

Item arrived today, as described, and it even included a bonus batch of nasty long-dead bugs hidden in the folds. But it cleaned up nicely, and looks great.

Reviewer: Grey
Very nice WWII USMC poncho. Was covered in a sort of white dust when I got it, took it out in the backyard and hung it from the shed, brushed both sides with a broom then washed it down with the garden hose and let it hang dry - now it looks like new. I am exited to have this unissued mint condition WWII poncho in my collection.
