B3 Jacket AC17757 contract
« on: August 18, 2014, 08:36:08 PM »
Now that I have it re-zipped I figured it was time to show off my new beauty.  This B3 is a 1941 unnamed contract in redskin with the two panel back named to an Allen Graham(yet to be researched).  When I picked it up the M39 Talon zipper was an absolute wreck but the jacket itself is in otherwise amazing shape.  I was able to find an original zipper and took the time to sew it into the original stitch holes.  No easy task let me tell you but well worth the time it took.
Always on the lookout for USAAF flight gear and anything pertaining to the Aleutians Campaign.
