Pre-WWII US Marine Corps "Banded" Wool Blanket. Marine olive drab. Measures 65" wide and 79" long. Features U.S.M.C. woven into the fabric in the center of blanket. (Have never seen another U.S.M.C. blanket with these initials woven in like this, they are usually embroidered or stenciled, so I believe it is very rare!) Also woven in are darker "bandings" near the blanket top and bottom. The name "S. G. Newman" is stenciled in white above the bottom band. The blanket has raw, unbound edges at top and bottom (although side selvages are intact), some corner tears, and some moth damage as pictured.

My father was a U.S. Marine in 1934-1938 but it is not his name stenciled on the blanket and I am not sure how he acquired it. $125 Cash
