Found at the bottom of a duffle bag.  Sure wish it was in better shape.  Thought you’d enjoy seeing.  Not many left.  Name appears to be BRONOSEN

I have two D-1s. They both survived a bit better but not by much and surely not better than my B-3s. It's funny, even in period photos they already look worn out.

Thanks, dmar836.  Since you own a couple any advice on pricing this would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.  Brian

it is a survivor, and what Dave said is true, they look beat up in the period pics...the flightline is tough on clothing

Without functioning zippers they just don't bring much. They are commonly found this way. You might be able to clean them up as representative examples but that adds a lot of time and careful effort with little financial gain. Plus the blown out areas indicate the shearling is likely rotted. Still , I bet you could make it look a lot better. I would use a lanolin based soap and oil. I generally don't advocate lots of oiling, etc. but there is little to lose here I'm afraid.
