    While perusing my contracts list , i noticed that under the Bronco heading they show no contracts for the AC ?? Was BRONCO an abbreviation ?? Seems strange that the vast amount of jackets that were made by them are completely missing from the list ??

    Carl, I’m confused too but mostly by your question. I’m not following what you’re asking and it’s making me feel like I’m not worthy of forum participation...:eek:

    Everbody is worthy Tibor !! no one is better than anyone else !.
    What ill do is post a pic of the Bronco contracts between 41 and 46 . It is very odd indeed , and might help in understanding my question .
    This is the listing of contracts supplied to Bronco . Now , any contract with a value of less than $50k is not entered as it was deemed insignificant to the war effort .

    What was the procurment price of an A2 ? about 9 dollars ? When looking at Gary Eastmans A2 book , it shows at least one contract of $472k for the 19172P contract . Seems a little odd that such a vast amount of money was overlooked .

    I cant seem to find any information about the company at all ,apart from that they were still going in the late 40's early 50's .No history whatsoever

    According to the Goodwear website Bronco Mfg, United Sheeplined and I. Spiewak & Sons companies were owned by the family of Isaac Spiewak.

    Don't know if that is of any help?

    Sure is, they supplied the military and not only civilian markets.
