Hi, it has been relined post war and had at lest some of the insignia reapplied. possibly most of it. It's a good starter jacket waiting for an upgrade to something legit throughout. A lot of vets did this sort of thing, but it really reduces value and puts up a lot of flags I'm afraid. All of the bits look real, jacket too, just perhaps not together for the last 70 years. Best to buy some of Jon Maguires books if you plan to keep after A-2's.
I agree with 'asterperious' and his comments made regarding this
A-2 jacket. It's nice - but not everything is period, as said.........
Thank you for your help i dont have lots of knowledge about these and will be returning it!
