FS: Minty 1914 Spec Army Wool Blanket $90

Here's an extremely nice, original 1914 spec Army Blanket for your consideration...

Image

This is the 1914 specification: olive/brown wool with darker brown end stripes, no U.S.. The later (WWI-production) specs are different. Edge thread is khaki. Missing the tag but no mothing, stains or damage (the "spots" on the image above are from the camera, not on the blanket). Easily nicer than most WW2 vintage blankets I encounter... and thirty years older. This reportedly came from the daughter of the WWI vet (per the seller I bought it from). Other, militaria, dealers had told the seller "Nope, that's not WWI"... They wuz wrong. I saw some WWI pattern blankets at the recent Louisville Show of Shows but they were nasty compared to this and priced at $100-$150.

$90 plus postage. Please PM direct if you are interested. Thanks for looking!
