    Wow, I've become numb. Thought I actually had a shot at this one. Oh well back to looking for a repro.

    Regards,

    Pretty amazing.

    When I found this one back in September my wife said that I stopped breathing

    Yes, found it at the Pickens flea market here in South Carolina, Size 48 (fits more like a 46) and it's practically new
    very lucky find, I knew they were desirable but I didn't know where the market was
    I didn't spend a lot on it either

    The best news in all of this from my standpoint is, that its a size 46!
    That means somewhere out there .....there could be another 46!!
    Nice Find Tom.

    Yes, for some reason these jackets sometimes show up near new in size 48...not sure why, but 48 is a "common" size in a very uncommon jacket...so I do have hope for you.
