1950s 1951 USN G1 goatskin leather bomber flight jacket brown size 40 by Monarch Mfg. US Navy military 7823 aer


Here's a brown USN bomber jacket from the 1950s, 1951. It's nicely worn leather with worn away areas on the collar. It has a "USN" on the back of the collar and a chin strap under the collar on the left side. It has a Conmar zipper with a leather pull and there's an inside pocket that snaps shut. The stitching in the lining seam down the center of the back came loose, and there's seam separation in the lining in back by the collar. The zipper is separated from the fabric at the bottom. It works fine if used gently. There's small blue paint spots by the right elbow, see photos. Otherwise, it's in excellent used condition.
