I'd like help with the age/authenticity of my jacket

I just got my first ever Schott today. I bought it used off of an auction site and paid a little over 200 dollars for it.

The seller did not give any info on how old it is but does claim it's an original style brown perfecto 115.

I'd like to know if it's legit, when it was made and what type of leather it is.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

This is 100% legit

I quote Gail : 

We offered the Naked Cowhide style #115 in 1983 & 1984, your jacket was produced during this time frame.

That makes me really happy to hear! Thanks very much.

 

A quick aside about cleaning, I know if any major work is to be done that I should take it to a professional but what about just minor upkeep? Is wiping it down with a damp cloth a big no-no?

It is fine, when a jacket is dirty/old i clean it with glycerin soap and a sponge and then i dry it with microfiber cloth

Just enough to clean it, i don't soak the leather

When this is done you can apply leather conditioner on it like Pecard, Obenauf, ko cho line ...

 

I don't really trust professionals for my jackets, i'd rather do it myself so i know what is puted on them

I see, thanks again. I was told an old wives tale that putting nivea skincare cream on leather is good for it but that sounds way too random to take a chance on and end up ruining something like this.

You are welcome

I used baby lotion (called mixa bebe in france) in the past without any issue, but still i stopped just in case, i don't know about nivea since i never tried their products

Now i'm using Pecard and bickmore 4, there are tons of nice products out there, here is a list of some of the best from what i've read on forums :

Pecard, obenauf, ko cho line, bickmore, elephant leather
