1940's Era Salt & Pepper Twill Pants WPA New Deal Program

Killer pair of never worn Depression Era WPA / New Deal Program button fly pants. Recently sold for just north of the $600 mark. Details include,
• Salt & Pepper twill fabric (aka Convert Cloth)
• Wide waist band 
• 2 button fly with single button top closure. Lack of button hole for top closure is another sign that these pants are a sample
• Dungaree style angular front pockets with large HD bar-tack reinforcement
• Unusual front coin / watch pocket located between the right front pocket and fly as opposed to the more common location above the right side front pocket  
• Tagged WPA Not To Be Sold (Illinois), Style 102, size 18, lot 633, date 3-7-42
