Late 1940's or Early 1950's Horsehide Buco Motorcycle Jacket J23 or J24

THIS JACKET BELONGS TO MY FATHER IN LAW. HE GOT IT WHEN HE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. HE THINKS IT WAS AROUND 1949 OR 1950 BUT HE CAN'T REMEMBER FOR SURE. HE DOESN'T EVEN REMEMBER IF HE BOUGHT IT NEW OR USED, SO IT COULD ACTUALLY BE OLDER THAN HE THINKS. IT IS HORSEHIDE AND SIZE 38.

FOR A JACKET OF IT'S AGE, IT'S IN GREAT CONDITION. I HAVE NOTED ANY MAJOR IMPERFECTIONS BELOW AND IN THE PICTURES.

IT DOES NOT HAVE THE BELT WITH IT.

THREE OF THE ZIPPER PULLS ARE GONE.

THE LEFT SLEEVE ZIPPER IS MISSING THE ZIPPER PULL AND THE ZIPPING MECHANISM.

THE SQUARE CIGARETTE POCKET ON TOP OF THE D-POCKET HAS COME UNSTITCHED ON THE TOP RIGHT SIDE FOR A COUPLE OF INCHES. I'M SURE IT COULD BE EASILY FIXED.

THE MAIN FRONT ZIPPER IS WORKING PROPERLY, BUT IT HAS COME UNSTITCHED ON THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THE ZIPPER FOR APPROXIMATELY THE BOTTOM INCH.

THE LINING IS IN GREAT SHAPE, BUT IT HAS BECOME TATTERED IN THE END OF THE SLEEVES. I HAVE INCLUDED PICTURES OF THE INSIDE OF THE SLEEVES BELOW.

THERE IS NORMAL WEAR ON THE JACKET. YOU WILL SEE IN SOME OF THE PICTURES THAT SOME OF THE WEAR HAS A GREEN TINT. I BELIEVE THIS HAS COME FROM SOME OF THE BRASS CLASPS TARNISHING, BUT CAN'T BE POSITIVE. I THINK IT WILL CLEAN RIGHT OFF, BUT I DIDN'T TRY TO CLEAN IT BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO CLEAN IT WITH. I FIGURED THAT WAS A JOB THAT SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE BUYER. I DIDN'T WANT TO ACCIDENTALLY MESS SOMETHING UP.

THIS IS A WONDERFULLY PRESERVED JACKET. IT WOULD BE HARD TO FIND A BETTER ONE OF IT'S AGE.

EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR REQUESTS FOR MORE PICTURES.

THE JACKET IS SOLD AS-IS, SO PLEASE TAKE NOTICE OF ALL THE FLAWS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE IT.

SHIPPING IS $20.00 TO THE UNITED STATES. THIS WILL INCLUDE INSURANCE AND DELIVERY CONFIRMATION.

THANKS FOR LOOKING!

I THINK THE GREEN DISCOLORATION HAS COME FROM THE BRASS BUTTON SNAPS. WE DIDN'T TRY TO CLEAN THE JACKET. I WASN'T SURE WHAT TO CLEAN IT WITH, SO WE JUST LEFT THAT FOR THE BUYER.
