Good condition!

 

As far as I can see from the photo, it looks like a lot of mouton on the edge of the jacket remains.

 

Is the very clear AAF decal original?

Nice looking two tone (1942-1943) vintage B3. Who is the maker? Size 38 is too small only if someone wants to wear it and I am here to say wearing an original B-3 jacket is only asking for trouble. The shearling on these should really be treated with extreme caution or you are just asking for it. I like the display as is, and it should look just the same for the next generation to enjoy if cared for properly. Thanks for sharing.

Ever since I purchased my B-3 it went onto a torso mount. I don’t  wear it , mess with it, or handle it . And yes my son will inherit my collection once I move on.  He said he probably will donate it to a ww2 museum .

You are a smart collector! Personally, I think the size 38 jackets fit perfectly on the dress forms and would rather have one in that size than the larger sizes myself.
