Uber Buckskin fringed leather jacket

Uber was one of the big makers. Based out of Owatonna, Minnesota instead of Wisconsin like most of the deer tanneries, this was one of their higher production models. While many jackets of this type are butter soft, this one was heavy, thick and somewhat stiff. Someone wore this one particularly hard, and stored it badly, as evidenced by the field of stretch marks on the shoulders. Main zip is a Coats Clark.
