As I write, this jacket is live on ebay for an opening bid $800. I recently purchased a similar era Block Bilt crosszip jacket. It is superb, but also like new. I have a passion for these late Talon Sunrise jackets from the Bay area. The Block Bilt jackets do not show up often so I certainly take notice. In fact there is one currently in Japan for sale for a hair under the asking price of this jacket. In comparison the Japanese jacket is very clean size 42, Steerhide with the original detachable collar. Of course for the same money the ebay jacket is way over priced. So what is a jacket like this worth? which ask the question of what would it take to restore it. I'll post the auction pics and hopefully get to give some ideas about how she would approach this restoration/repair. (Edit Note by Peacoat: this tag ought to get her attention: @iknowleather) (sorry I don't know how to tag her, some one please help) This Block is labeled as Horsehide. It is not unusual to see this style in Steerhide. They often used these light material plaid linings.
