Nice jackets! I don't have any painted or patched jackets but I have this salty A-2. Not in good condition but can't complain for $25. Also found a piece of a 1940s cigarette pack in the pocket.

This A-2 was also at the show, and you can see it in the far background of the "Flak Haven" photo shown above.

It was ID'd to a member of the 446th Bomb Group and came with a Riker mount containing several loose items (shown in photo above).

Do you happen to have the contact information for whoever was selling this jacket? Thanks

The ball turret gunner was from New Jersey and they called him Jersey.

 

Jersey's girlfriend was an artist and she came up with the design.

 

Jersey Bounce was a song that was out at the time.

 

Jersey is also a cow.
