DEADSTOCK 1940's MONTGOMERY WARD BROWN CONVERT CLOTH WORKSHIRT

This vintage Montgomery Ward salt & pepper workshirt is another classic case of ebay now you see it, now you don't.  Deadstock with lot & size tag and Pepperell Fabrics Sanforized Shrunk, Vat Dyed placket flasher in rarely seen brown convert cloth, this beauty didn't last long before the much dreaded "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available" appeared. Details including narrow pointed collar and machine loomed neck label point to this shirt likely dating from the 1940's, possibly 1930's. Any and all information that helps better confirm age is always appreciated.
