Few coats in that condition. I think by and large a lot of U.S. Aviators coats were private purchase in WW1. I got an odd ball quilted cotton twil example from an aviator in the Colorado National Guard that flew Airmail in the 1920's (Coat was patented in 1918). That set you got was awesome. If I was to only have one WW1 group that would have been it.

Superb, thanks for posting!
