    It's not an A-2 jacket, it's a civilian A-2 style jacket very similar to the old Schott 674.

    I won't guess how old it is, but for what it's worth, these sorts of jackets were popular for decades. (I bought a brand new Schott 674 in 1984.) Hopefully, one of our Buco experts will know more.

    Not to say that it isn't a cool jacket... But the two-piece back, blended-fabric knits, double-entry pockets, snaps on the windflap, and missing spec label, throat hook, and collar snaps all mark it as not being a legit spec A-2.

    Cool civi A2, I like the handwarmer pockets/ cargo pockets hybrid. Hard to say how much you'd get for it, the knits would need replacing by a new owner.
