    Hello everybody!

    Is there anyway to tell an early MIL-J-7823 AER from a later one? I know the specification started in 1951 and ended in 1961. The particular one I'm looking at is made by J.A. Dubow with the contract number being N383S-47654. Im hoping its an early one as those could have seen service in Korea. Attached are images of the tag and the front of the jacket.

    Hi,

    I am no expert but I think this could be a Lost World repro...

    To answer your initial question, JA Dubow 7823 would be Korean War era as I used to have a patched JA Dubow and I know the pilot flew night fighter missions during the war.

    Nice Lost Worlds G-1! Dubow never had a 7823 contract.
