1940s Hercules shawl collar horsehide coat

Although I can not find it in Sears catalogs post-war, this front quarter horsehide leather coat bears a c.1947 Hercules Outerwear label.  The original bakelite buttons were replaced at some point with post-war US Air Force metal buttons, and the belt was removed.  The brown mouton collar on the black leather is a great look.  Inside is corduroy trim and a cotton, as opposed to sheepskin, lining.
