This classic vintage U.S. Navy pea coat features heavy Kersey wool in a deep midnight navy, all eight original U.S. Navy buttons (6 front buttons and two collar buttons), full lining, two corduroy-lined exterior pockets, two interior pockets, and a hook vent.

The original interior tag is missing, but you can see the outline of where it was originally sewn under the interior chest pocket. Presumably it was removed because the original owner's name was written on it. However, faint military stenciling on the bottom of the lining reads "CHRISTIANSEN, R. J."

This coat has corduroy pockets and double-row stitching above the cuff. These details place this coat's date of manufacture sometime prior to 1967.

This coat is in exceptional condition, with no stains, holes, fading, lining tears or missing buttons. It's very difficult to find a genuine U.S. Navy pea coat of this vintage without moth damage. For the sake of full disclosure, there is a 2" section under the rear collar where the stitching has become detached. This is a very easy and inexpensive fix, or it could be left as-is, since the collar remains firmly attached and its appearance is not impacted whatsoever.

The coat measures out to be approximately 38R, but please see the actual measurements listed below.

Measurements (taken with coat buttoned and lying flat)
Chest: 41"
Shoulders: 18.5"
Sleeve: 23"
Length from bottom of collar: 30.5"

Asking $120 or offer. Price includes free CONUS shipping.

Great jacket. I have a 67 model with the corduroy pockets. It really is a fantastic jacket. Heavy, warm and always in style. You're unlikely to wear it out. A good buy if it's your size.
