Constructed of olive drab wool, the single breasted cotton lined tunic features a five button fly front closure. Affixed to each breast, pleated pockets are adorned with scalloped flaps which conceal buttoned closures. Similarly hidden beneath the lay-down collar, buttons secure the tunic shoulder straps at the base of the neck. Additionally, both pleated cuffs feature buttoned closures for a total of nine olive drab bakelite buttons. To each flank of the hip adjustable blackened steel buckles, while male and female brass button snaps are found on the waistband and corresponding waist tab.
Sewn below the left shoulder seam, a period appropriate 2nd Armored Division patch and corresponding “Hell On Wheels” title. Four inches above the left cuff, five gold bars are present suggesting two and a half years of service. Sewn onto each arm are three stripe chevrons denoting the soldier’s rank of Sergeant. At the nape of the neck the small white size tag remains noting the tunic to be size 38 Regular. Stitched into the interior right breast pocket, the manufacture date shows as June 9th 1944.
