I am selling this WWII USAAF A-2 for a collector friend. It is an original WWII AAF A-2 with period made patches identifying it to the 7th Bomb Group.

This A-2 is the real deal and shows average wear commensurate with its age (see photos). The thick leather shell has the usual expected wear/scuffing overall but remains supple/durable. The exterior has a few very small repairs, some topical losses to the collar fold and a small seam split under the right arm in the pit area (fairly easy repair - see photos). There are a few small paint stains to the front, rear of the right sleeve and to the group patch (see photos). Upper left chest area has a large period made/sewn 7th Bomb Squadron patch that measures 8 x 5.5 inches and is paint on leather (see photos). Upper right arm has a period made 10th Air Force patch that measures 3.125 inches and has been attached with glue (see photos). Both patches show expected wear & minor losses and the 10th AF patch has come loose to the leading edge (see photos). No other patches or namestrips have ever been sewn to this jacket. Knit cuffs and waistband are later style replacements and are near new with only a few of the usual small snags or losses (waistband - see photos). Zipper run is the original small tooth Talon that works properly (see photos).

Original brown lining remains solid overall with light/moderate age soiling (see photos). There are some small losses to the collar area, some small worn areas above the waistband and minor seam splits to the armpits (see photos). The nomenclature label was apparently removed by the Veteran long ago and is not present (see photos). No size is indicated anywhere but the jacket fits the mannequin as a size 36-38 (see photos). There is a name written to the lining above the waistband that ID's the previous owner as R. Leonard (see photos).

The 7th Bomb Group operated initially in the Philippines as a B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bomber unit assigned to Fifth Air Force but after the fall of the Philippines in early 1942, operated primarily with the Tenth Air Force in India as a B-24 Liberator unit. The group motto was "Mors Ab Alto" (Death From Above).

Measurements for this jacket are: shoulder seam to shoulder seam across the back – 18.5 inches, shoulder seam to the end of the cuff material – 24 inches, base seam of collar to bottom of waistband material - 23.5 inches. Armpit to armpit across the front - 21.5 inches.

This is a real WWII made AAF A-2 jacket that has a few repairs but remains basically solid overall. It has period made patches and could be used for display or wear. That WWII 7th BG patch is a tough one to find. Absolutely guaranteed as described.
