What is that Color?

  1. I recently acquired a mint US military trench coat, it is hard to date as I know nothing about contract numbers and such but I'd suspect this one though in as new would perhaps date from the early 80's. I can't see a lot of change over the years so I'm confident I can wear it with my WW2 Pinks and Greens as the WW2 ones frankly look identical. The thing is I can't find a reference to the color. It looks almost light sage green in some light and more of a tan in others. Does anyone know the correct color name for this?
     
  2. I've managed to find a contract number and as it is a DLA # It has to be (1978 - 1993) Prefix DLA100-86-C would seem to suggest it was manufactured in 1986?
