Women's Army Jacket with Hippie Patches
This is an original vintage army jacket that has been covered in hippie patches. It is a women's short wool jacket, size medium, with hidden buttons and a cinch waist. Has a US Army patch and two original lapel pins, but the rest of the patches were added on later, and include "Dead End", "Yield", "Detour", an American flag lightning bolt, an ankh/peace sign inside a heart, and a flower covered in ladybugs that says, "Don't bug me".
The lapel pins are from 1956, from the 558th Artillery Group and read, "Honor Guides Our Power". The eagle stands for the US and the bob for artillery missile warhead support. The two stars refer to the Group’s two-part mission: the command of assign US Army warhead support organizations and the furnishing of related advice to its host nation. Campaigns: World War II—Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, Central Europe.
Has one stain on the front, which I have not tried to remove. Otherwise, excellent condition with no moth holes.
