Hi Gail. Thank you so much for the information on the last 2 jackets I posted. They fit great and are really good quality.

I've just recently purchased another flight jacket with a couple of "war patches" and a strange W.W.2 label. It seems to be quite vintage and I was hoping you had some more info on it as I've never seen another one like it. Years produced and perhaps how many would you estimate? I picked this one up for $120 and Im hoping it was a good buy.

The second jacket Im considering seems to be a flight jacket as well but with the old style Perfecto label. I read through the forum and another guy asked about a perfecto flight jacket as well but the labels seem to differ. Could you tell me if this was maybe just an early production? If so Im guessing it is quite rare.

Thanks in advance for your help.

The first jacket is the style 674SP made in distressed steerhide leather. The jacket was produced from 1983-1985, patches and bars on epaulets were added by owner. The second jacket with the "Blue" Bull label is much older from 1960, possible style number could have been 734 as this was the style number for the A/2 flight jacket in steerhide in the 1960 catalog.
