An excellent original Type D-1 fitted with a sunburst Talon zipper which suggests that it’s a very early jacket as does the leather trim fitted to the cuff edge as opposed to the more common folded back sheepskin. The jacket has some patina and there is a short surface crack in the area where a decal is normally fitted. Other downsides are a missing label and one period patch to the lower back. This is a unusually large jacket easy big enough to fit a 44” chest as the external circumference is nearly 49”. A good honest type D-1 ideal for a collector.
