    Listed as an original A2 but the label only has 3 digits on the end similar to a Lost World label.
    The jacket looks like a vintage Lost Worlds Dubow A2.
    Bids are up to $1,300.00.US. ...... Did I miss something?..... or did the bidders?

    This nice size 42 Dubow is being sold by Victor, (Silver Surfer here).The label is original to the jacket-but some of the lettering has worn off, which is quite normal with Dubow labels. Lost Words copied a worn Dubow label and hence the missing "1" digit on their repro labels, which incidentally do not incorporate the size on the label as original Dubow labels do.

    Thanks to all of you for your responses and for the education.
    I stand corrected.
    This is what I like about the forum the learning curve is immediate.

    My sincerest apologies to Victor (Silver Surfer). I previously purchased a vintage jacket from him and have spoken with him on a few occasions. He is absolutely one of the most legitimate and knowledgeable people regarding A2's , as well as being a good guy.

    In the future I will be a little more diligent in my research before posting any questions :oops:

    Remember, Lost World's doesn't copy errors:

    The LOST WORLDS "Collar Stand" A-2, like the original Dubow, is fully symmetrical. If something isn't perfect and balanced, we don't make it. Nor do we copy errors...

    Ours is perfection. LOST WORLDS has a different perspective on reproduction than some other mfgs. We conceive our jacket to emulate that A-2 which Jacob Dubow had cut, then sewn by his best cutter and operator to serve as a perfect production sample for the rest of his many workers, rather than a Xerox of a flawed piece such as one stumbles on at a military show or the like.
