Found this A2 on a militaria auction site recently. As you can see it has no maker label.
Can one of you guys ID this thing based on the pics? Thanks in advance.

It does have 3-piece sleeves which means not an offical issue contract.
Maybe a private purchase Dubow.

out of curiosity what purpose did the addition of the three piece sleeve serve? why would a contractor alter the cut of an A-2 in such a way? was it easier to produce in this fashion since it didn't require military contract approval?

Makes for more economical cutting, there aren't enough small panels in an Issue A-2 and Horse FQs are fairly small
