Crown zip mouton collared bomber jacket

This jacket was made post war- late 1940s into the early 1950s.  It has a mouton collar, handwarmer pockets, knit collar and cuffs, a Talon breast pocket zipper and a spring loaded Crown main zip. Unfortunately, the liner and label are gone, although it would have originally had a sheepskin lined body and quilted rayon lined sleeves. More on the history of these post-war "bomber" jackets later.
