It's a pretty nice condition late war AAF B-15A flight jacket. Prices can be all over with these, and a lot of it comes down to size and what shape it's in.

IMHO i dont think it is ! the label looks spot on to me so does the oxygen mask tabs plus the maker is correct

Without any doubt. Size 38 is pretty standard for these. If you want a range on value for your trade, drop me a PM.
