WWII Flight Jacket starting at $1 w/ Free shipping

Post by CRAZYBUBBA » Wed Jan 27, 2010 3:31 pm

As above. The naval flight museum, ebay buyers and my alma mater don't seem interested but it's too small and I don't have the space to keep it around.

This is why i never buy leathers. They just take up too much space!

Honestly, I'm just surprised that the Naval Aviation Museum didn't want it, I thought that would be a sure bet.

Then another seller put up the same jacket (without a newer zipper) and sold it for $750+ shipping, yet I had no bites at $499. It's all very confusing.

I used to teach History and one of my mentor teachers had a jacket like that from his service days. So incredibly awesome! I can't believe no museums wanted it!

Wow, it's got 46 watchers at the moment, page views are almost 600.

This could be a popcorn finish, or not.

Yup, it was a great jacket.
Selling stuff is really exciting too. Although it is a little different when it's something that you've owned/been wearing for a while. I'm sad to see it go :cry:, but the extra $ will come in handy.
