Sadly probably thrown out. Like most government issue stuff, store it until needed, once it's too old or if it's not needed try and sell it, if you can't sell it throw it out.
same here. I spent a lot of time looking at all the posts and pics here months ago. and checked out other sites and google images of period A-2 jackets. I have a fascination for them. only just this past year was I able to finally get one... then another.. and another. lol! all repros. maybe one day I can invest in a period authentic theater worn jacket. I look at those too that come up on various sites but I just can't do it right now... so I spend on the peripherals like leather helmets, gloves, wool flight suits. Its amazing what you can get if you live on feebay and keep hitting the newly listed button lol! hope I can pay my rent next month! LOL!Man, what the heck is wrong with me. I love looking at vintage A2 jackets. I need help.
Do bears poop in the woods ?so I'm mulling over adding a set of NOS TYPE A-9A gunners mittens to my museum.
not sure on the maker. Ken-Wel Sporting Goods Co. (a lesser known but made baseball gloves.) Purchase order 44-6528 AF spec no. 94 3070 A
