    Found this one recently on an auction site. Very little information other than "A2 type jacket" and the
    two photos. Not even a size. Can anyone give me a maker and/or date based on the contract?
    Looks to be in pretty good shape. Thanks in advance.:) 670-1.jpg 670-2.jpg

    That's a Cable Raincoat Co. contract out of Boston, MA. According to Gary's book, the date of the contract is April 29, 1942 with 50,000 jackets produced at a cost of $8.24 per jacket.
    I've got an example of same contract and have to say it's might comfortable jacket to wear.

    There is a sticky at the top of the Vintage Section section with all the A-2 contracts/orders/quantities and dates.
