Original U.S. WWII Naval Aviator Sheepskin Painted Winter Flight Jacket M-445

Item Description

Original Items: Only One Set Available. From the bleak Aleutians to the isolated airstrips of the Pacific, US Navy pilots of WW2 were issued the M-445 sheepskin leather flight jacket for winter weather.

This US Navy WW2 M-445 is in good condition, with tearing to the left reverse shoulder. Otherwise, the jacket is in good shape, with no other damage to the tough sheepskin leather construction, which still remains fairly supple and pliant. It boasts a warm sheepskin fleece lined collar and interior, sports a brass front zipper (functional) and bears the classic US Navy black and gold nomenclature tag at the interior neck that reads:

JACKETS, WINTER, HEAVY
Bu AERO- U.S. NAVY
SPECIFICATION M-445
MONARCH MFG. CO.

APPROXIMATE SIZE 40. It features button closures at the front pockets and middle waist, carries leather strap and brass buckle side adjusters, and is "USN" stamped at the back underside of the collar.The best aspect of this jacket is that the reverse is painted with a pinup girl and:

SKIPPER

A nice example of a very rare Painted Original U.S. WWII Navy Sheepskin Winter Flight Jacket M-445.
