A lovely, original USN deck jacket - Genuine US military issue
Used throughout the 1960s and into the 1990s, these jackets are the ideal basic winter warmer with a thick synthetic pile lining and robust cotton/nylon shell. A simple design with great potential.
A really lovely example, this A-2 shows the original sailor's name written in pen over the chest pocket (not an unusual practice) as well as an original stencil on the back. Stencils were often used to identify what ship the jacket/sailor belonged to.
In excellent overall condition with minor wear - All buttons, zips, fittings, and fixtures are present and working. The contract label is present and legible. The knitted cuffs are in excellent condition with no damage. The zip runs smoothly. There is a small paint stain on the lower back as seen.
