U.S. overcoats were olive drab, not brown.

The original overcoat I own does have a bit of brown to it. Greenish, but not as green as the M41 field jacket, but not as brown as what's shown in these pictures.

Right.

Yes, the color is too brown. But it could be just lighting etc. ?

The problem is the old color film of that era -- it tended to make things look redder than they were (thus turning olive drab to brown).

Yes, that seems to be what happens. Maybe going to some sites online ? Or if one is fortunate enough to have some sort of museum near by. Which has an item like this and others.

E.g. I know the Infantry Museum at Ft. Benning, GA, did have, IIRC an original example of almost all US ARMY uniforms from most eras/conflicts.
