New member with jacket question

I have always been fond of leather flight jackets. I found this one for sale near me. The size is right, but my question is about the quality. I have never heard of this brand and a general search turns up jackets from $75 to over $500. Can someone give me an idea of the quality and approximate value?

Hi Kyle
Your Golden Fleece Jacket is a commercially made jacket that is fairly common. While your jacket is pretty common the history of the name goes back quite a few years to a company owned by I. Spiewak and Sons.
The company made jackets for several years and during WWII had a one time contract to make A2 jackets for the USAAF . You can read about the company at this link.


I hope that helps to answer your questions
Cheers
