This one always got positive comments. I just think these were late 50s early 60s. The label is often lost since it was just glued on.

This one looks stellar!! Not to be a VINTAGE SNOB but it seems that the older stuff is almost always better quality than the newer stuff across all makers. Even the later Hercules jackets can't hold a candle to the earlier ones. Now that may have something to do with the fact that Sears contracted out all of their jackets so there were different makers over the years. Excelled is itself a maker. But similar to Fidelity, (both companies I believe still survive today), the older Excelled jackets seem to be a cut above the more modern offerings.

^^ That is tiny for a 40. Like 19.5" pit to Pit
You would think the seller would at least put some back and inside photos in thier ad, perhaps?
If the seller knew what he was selling, he would have gotten more money
Original Bucos I own the 46s have 23 P2P the 44s 22 P2P taking in the give or take in measuring P2P I can see a size 40 jacket with a declared P2P of 19.5

Yes I suspect so. It was in Viroqua, Wisconsin which is a rather small rural town on Rt 14. I have driven through there several times, and it might be a good place to find something like this in an antique shop, even. The graining on that leather was amazing. It looks to have had the original fur collar too which probably makes it rarer.
