Saw this in an antique store today for $40, but I passed. A little beat up...still pretty cool though.

Its a repro done in the early 80s and came out of England.They were brought in by the cartload.They also at that time made some of the neatest looking B-3 jacket all painted up with squadron patches on the front and full painted backs.They got some of the collectors back then for thousands of dollars they looked that good.You will see very very few Squadron patches on the shearling style backing that are period done.Scotty
