Officially the "Overcoat, Short, Officer's, M-1926", this was the belted wool Army overcoat worn by officers during World War II. The interior pocket label is dated 1942, with a stated size of 40 Short. The overcoat is in overall very good condition. There is a small, almost perfectly circular, hole on the lower front of the jacket that is about 1/8 of an inch wide. It may be that another officer held a lit cigarette too close to the officer who was wearing the coat.
