Yashica Happi Coat from Japan

A wonderful find in our world of Yashica collecting that we would like to share. We’re thinking this coat is from maybe as early as 1965 but more likely from 1968 to 1972. It’s always difficult to put an exact date on marketing items as sometimes they will appear again after the initial release. We thought the coat reminded us of something Doc would have dressed Marty McFly in in the 1950’s with the electron symbol and all. Maybe something Doc would have worn as a lab coat from time to time.

Anyhow it’s now part of the “silly stuff” that we’ve collected along the way. The original black sash or belt was with it too. Nice condition overall given the years its passed through. Of course ‘Sailor Boy’ had to be included.
