Help identify this Perfecto? 1940’s?

Hello! I picked up this very cool old one star jacket today and I’m having a hard time figuring out when it was manufactured. The tag is long gone. The small button pocket has just enough ink on it to see that it says Size 44. The buttons are labeled “Rau Fastener Co. Prov RI” zipper is a Talon, there are no buttons on collar.

thanks in advance!

If the jacket is a Perfecto Schott brand, the style appears to be the vintage style #615. This jacket was a Steerhide leather with a quilt lining, and no belt. The #615 was in our line from 1970 - 1979.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I forgot to note that there are belt loops with fasteners on them which is something I’ve been having a hard time identifying. Here is a picture. Also, the material underneath the wrist zipper seems to be much different?

Also, I looked at the back of the cuff material and it is manmade? Picture below.

It is a the style 615 as I noted from the 70's, the inside cuffs are a man made material, which was used at that time. The laces on the side gussets are not original but added by a previous owner. It appears this jacket needs a lot of refurbishing to restore it's original condition. It appears to be very worn and I can see at least the one broken zipper missing teeth. The leather also seems to be cracking and dry from lack of conditioning through the years.
