Pre Wwi / Ww1 Us Marine Corps, Blue Wool Blanket, Named, Unit Marked, Vg Cond.:
Pre WWI / WW1 U.S. Marine Corps, Blue Wool Blanket with Dark Blue Stripes, Unit Marked and Named to Marine, Very Good Condition. I am not sure exactly what time period this Blue Wool USMC Blanket dates from, but I am guessing the early 1900’s. The Blanket is made of very old Blue Wool and has a darker blue stripe along each end of the Blanket (see pictures). The Blanket is stenciled with the Marines Name and Unit Number “846, USMC, LEWIS” (see pictures). The Marine also hand painted his name on the opposite end of the Blanket “H B LEWIS” (see picture). One side of the USMC Blanket is in great condition. The other side of the USMC Blanket has some very old light brownish paint spatters that did not bleed through to the other side of the Blanket. There is one hole in the blanket that measures about 1 1/2” inches and could easily be repaired. The USMC Blanket measures about 74” x 59” inches.
