Ww2 Us Aaf Fighter Pilot A-2 Jacket W/ P-47 Art & Orig Leather 85th Fs Patch For Sale

Ww2 Us Aaf Fighter Pilot A-2 Jacket W/ P-47 Art & Orig Leather 85th Fs Patch

I have dug out of storage a jacket, size 38, w/stenciled owner name and serial # in lining, leather 85th Fighter Squadron patch on chest (winged skull), painted P-47 on back. They started flying P-40 and transitioned to Thunderbolt after arrival in Mediterranean theater.This squadron was part of 79th Fighter Group. There was an excellent book published by Schiffer about 5 yrs ago on this group. There are new and used copies available on Amazon and .

Mr. Stalter died in Illinois in 1997 at age 75.

The paper clip in the photo showing specification label is used to make it easier to read size tag, which tends to curl up if not anchored.

Regarding condition, I can see by extra stitching holes that the waistband is a replacement. I cannot find extra stitching holes at the cuffs (if done correctly you can't always find them as they can be inside not in plain view); however, since the cuffs match the waistband very closely in both wear and color, it is my opinion that they also are replacement.


As to the rest of the jacket, there a few small tears to the lining, mostly around the collar.
I only found one tear in leather, probably a cut 1 cm on front panel of Rt sleeve near elbow; it is linear and would be easy to patch if desired.
There is considerable wear to the front panel of both sleeves, with small bits of the original dye having flaked off here and there, exposing the raw, undyed leather beneath, in these areas, as shown in photos.Conmar brand zipper, collar hook, and snaps are present and fully functional.
