    Since this nice find is in worn condition, with some holes in it, I would not pay more than 100 dollars for it. Do you mind if you can tell us the price he is asking for? Its a post WWII jacket and in Fair condition. Black tags are a nice addition.

    Thanks for that, the starting price is 150 so clearly that not something I want to be bidding on, and I am looking for a wartime flying jacket. Presumably its immediatley post war, as the Army Air Forces didnt exist for long after?

    You've stopped me wasting some money there, so thanks.

    Are you certain its not a wartime jacket? My reference book on the subject says type B-15 was superceded by B-15b in May 1945. Since this is a type B15 that would infact, make this one wartime. I notice there is one for sale at *Military Aviation Artifacts for $400. Presumably that one is grossly overpriced if I should be looking for one for $100?

    Dug around some data bases. I stand corrected, this is a first issue jacket. Hince B-15. The amendment to the original would follow B-15A. B-15B, B-15C, B-15D. Yes, this is for sure a WWII jacket. 1944 from what i come across. Perhaps you can grab it at 120 pounds? That's a fair price
