Summary Very Good

Assessor Christina

Notes It is a reproduction, and it looks like it has nevere been worn, but does have a few light stains. The patches on the left and right sleeves have started to curl at the edges. The denim itself is in excellent condition. It is sturdy and still has the stiffness of new denim. However, there are some heavy creaes that could be ironed out, but may be more permanent with time, partcularly a diagonal crease across the front chest and a horizontal crease along the proper left front side aligned with the 4th button. All buttons are present. There is a slight circular stain on the propers right breast pocket. There are two metal pins on the collar, one reading "US", and the other is a rifle certification pin with two crossed rifles on it. There is what looks like a small black marker/ink stain on the proper right sleeve just above the stripes. The back has a few light stains across the shoulder blade area.
