    CDED438B-DCD4-4AAC-BB89-43D9FA786A29.jpeg A friend is considering buying a G-1. He sent me a few pics and asked if I could date it. It’s got no label. The jacket has USN stamped into the windflap, brown lining, non scalloped pockets and a real mouton collar. The zipper is a small toothed rectangular puller Talon, but I suspect that it may be a replacement. I told him that I reckon it’s from around 1960. I haven’t a clue about the maker. Can anyone date it more accurately ?

    Hi Peter,
    It does look like a 7823 LW Foster with that small collar. Zip and wrist knits look replaced.

    All the best
    Stu
