Usmc Marine Officer Mess Dress Uniform China Old Timer Philipines Marksman:
This is an incredibly rare early USMC Marine Officer Mess Dress uniform to a real old timer in the Corps. It is named in both the pants and jacket to a J. E. Snow and dated 1922 when he was a Capt. This upon research proved to be a long time Marine with prior enlisted service and officerwith various assignments in China, Philippines, Pearl Harbor and sea going. Ancestry will show this to be James E. Snow who was also an expert marksman with awards and trained others (search his name on the internet) The jacket and pants are in great shape and are incredibly ornate with beautiful gold. Feel free to ask questions and I don't ship outside the US.
