This is an original goatskin G-1 United States Navy (USN) 55J14 model flight jacket, size 38. This model followed the WWII versions and is the earliest of Naval flight jackets designated as the G-1, introduced in 1947 and used extensively through the Korean War. The tag reads:
BUAER - U.S. NAVYG-1 FLIGHT JACKETSPEC. 55J14(AER) 38CONTRACT NO.\-383s-29897L.W. FOSTER SPORTWEAR CO. INC.
It has no divisional markings, however, all over the front, it has what appears to be writing, which I cannot make out. Under the collar in the rear is painted in white “U.S.N.”. It has the correct TALON zipper, which works fine. It has one interior pocket on the left closed, closed by a snap button. As an early jacket, it correctly lacks the pinpricked markings on the goatskin strip behind the zipper. Pencil slot is located on the left exterior pocket.Overall, it is in good condition. No holes, tears, or repairs. All of the original buttons are present. Brown liner is in excellent condition. The wool knit sleeves and waistband are in great condition. The mouton collar is in great shape. The goatskin and stitching are strong. It has some crazing and flaking issues along the rear along the shoulders. The right sleeve is a little stiff. Please see pics for condition and ask questions if you have them. Thanks for looking!
