indentify flight jacket + date?
Watch this Post


I acquired this jacket about 10 years ago and was told it was from approximately 1960-1970.  The main tag has been removed. The snaps say "Schott" and are black.  I have included 2 tag pictures.  The one in the pocket is the lot/size white tag. The pockets are a whote woven material inside and the lining is just plain black - no quilting.  There are snaps that look like a collar could be attached.

Is this a genuine Schott? 

How old might it be?

Is there a way to determine value - I will probably sell it here in the trading post.

Many thanks!  (from Kitty)  (I added a picture of the back to help identify - the jacket does have epaulets with snaps)

Not really alot to determine the age, based on the Schott logo snaps it is our jacket, and we started using Logo snaps after the mid-1970's. I think it is either a 684SM or 184SM depending on the leather and someone has removed the zip-out liner zipper. On older jackets the main label and size label were on the zip-out liner and since there are no labels I think it was this style. We do not determine a value on used or vintage jackets. I cannot even really determine the actual age, except it was made after the mid-1970's and we are still making the 184SM. Gail
