Also, could I get a confirmation this is indeed a 118? There's no coin pocket tag, I have YKK on the main zipper, schott on the snaps, a "Z" style pattern on the cuff zippers and the main tag says Perfecto by Schott NYC without any trademark sign. Is there any way to tell if I'm dealing with a 618 or a 118

I cannot confirm the type of leather from photos, plus the pocket ticket is missing from the snap coin pocket which could confirm the style number. On a used jacket you never know the history of the jacket on how previous owner or owners have maintained the jacket. Not conditioning the leather, storing in a hot area, covering the jacket with plastic and applying products especially a water repellent product can cause the leather to dry out. If you decide to keep the jacket I would recommend you have the jacket professionally cleaned and conditioned, this removes all the dirt and sweat from linings and conditions the leather. If the jacket has had a sealant applied from a previous owner then the pores are sealed and conditioners cannot be absorbed to condition the leather. If you got a bargain price, but do not want the cost of professionally cleaning & conditioning, then I suggest the Otter Wax products we sell on our website under Accessories. The kit contains Saddle Soap which can lightly clean the leather, the Salve can restore, soften & repair cracking if a sealant has not been applied. The oil will condition and revive the finish.
