WWII Willis and Geiger US Navy Dirigible Leather Jacket

Up for sale is an original WWII Willis and Geiger leather jacket which I’m sure had many uses one of which was by US Navy dirigible crews patrolling for enemy submarine activity. It is a size 42. Other than some scuff marks and a 2 x 1 inch dark spot, looks like black ink, on the front of the jacket approx. 12 inches below the waist belt, it is in remarkable condition for it’s age. All original Talon zippers in good working order however the main zipper has been replaced with a very period appropriate YKK. Has map poket on front of jacket along with two deep flap pockets and two zippered pass through openings next to flap pockets and matching leather belt. Silk lining in near perfect condition, only noticeble wear along collar which unfortunately has degraded contractors tag to a degree, see picture. Storm cuffs in perfect condition as well. There is definately alot of life left in this jacket as the leather is still in great condition. Faux collar is in near perfect condition as well.
