I am selling this WWII USAAF A-2 for a collector friend. It is an original WWII AAF A-2 with period made/sewn squadron patch and period painted mission bombs to the right chest.

This A-2 is the real deal and shows average wear commensurate with its age (see photos). The thick leather shell is of excellent quality and remains supple/durable. The exterior has no rips, mtears or losses anywhere, is very solid and without issues (see photos). Upper left chest area has a period theatre made/sewn 487th Bomb Squadron patch that measures 4 inches across and upper right chest has 51 period painted bombs indicating missions flown (see photos). The 487th patch is multipiece cloth and shows expected topical wear and minor losses (see photos). There are a few loose pieces and when one is lifted you can see the period foreign newspaper used as filler (see photos). No other patches or namestrips have ever been sewn to this jacket. Knit cuffs and waistband are later style replacements and are as new with none of the usual small snags or losses (see photos). Zipper run is the original small tooth Crown that has oxidized and cannot be zipped (needs replacement - see photos). There is a very neat metal bomb fuse tag that was period added to the pull as a souvenir (see photos).

Original brown cotton lining remains solid overall with light/averageage soiling (see photos). There are some very minor losses to the collar area but no other worn areas or seam splits (see photos). Nomenclature label near the collar is present and shows the manufacturer as Star Sportswear Mfg. Co., Lynn, Mass. (see photos). The small size tag below the label shows size as 42 but the jacket fits the mannequin as a size 38 (see photos).

There is no name or partial serial number anywhere that I can find (see photos).

The 487th Bomb Squadron was established as a B-25 Mitchell medium bomber squadron in mid-1942 and trained by Third Air Force in the southEastern United States. They were deployed to IX Bomber Command in Egypt initially in March 1943 via Air Transport Command then reassigned to Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO), and to XII Bomber Command in Tunisia. They supported Allied ground forces in Tunisian Campaign; participated in Invasions of Sicily and Italy during 1943, supporting Allied ground forces with tactical bombing of enemy targets. Participated in liberation of Corsica during the spring of 1944, then returned to Italy engaging in attacks on enemy ground forces and targets in the Po Valley during the spring of 1945. Squadron personnel were demobilized in Italy during summer of 1945 and the squadron returned to the United States, being prepared for deployment to Pacific Theater for use as a tactical bomb squadron in programmed Invasion of Japan. Japanese capitulation led to squadron's inactivation in November 1945.

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 – 23.5 inches, base seam of collar to bottom of waistband material - 23.5 inches. Armpit to armpit across the front - 22 inches.

This is a real WWII made AAF A-2 jacket that is solid overall and was made by a rarely seen maker. It has never been fooled with, has period/theatre made sewn squadron patch and a painted mission display. It would be great for a WWII AAF display. Absolutely guaranteed as described. I really like thequality of the leather on this jacket. There are no splits to the collar and it remains of excellent wearable quality if the zipper run is replaced.
