i came across this listing. item# 273672583013. it may be the earliest elc b-3 i have seen for sale to date. the bill of sale in the pix says it was sold in 2003. the listing goes on the indicate it is a 40 long. however, by the measurements that i asked for, i would say that it is a 40 regular. the jacket is listed for a $800 bin, but suspect that an offer of $600-$700 may buy it. whats so special about it? it is made with super dense shearling [fenland?], and it is finished as wwll originals were [not the newer crinkly finish] . except for the cuff ends, it appears to have hardly been worn, and well taken care of.
