This one looks just like @regius jacket. The label is a Montgomery Wards, but the design screams Ralphs-Pugh. The zipper isn't original, but they seem to have done a great job with the replacement. If it does belong to @regius, then the repair work was all done by Dena.40s steerhide aviator, probably a Ralphs Pugh (looks a lot like it, but it's actually not written on the label) size 40, 487$ starting bid:

If it was one of OUR OWN you'd think it woulda hit the classifieds here before hitting eBay..... Perhaps the Seller thinks an auction will bring a higher price even with the sales fees.
JUSTICE was done in the end!!!In 1979, I visited a place called War babies? In Melrose Street, Los Angeles. They had bucos and 50s HD for sale. I remember the prices were very high, somewhere around 1.5k for the coolest jackets. Purchased a Schott 184sm there. My first brand-new jacket ever. I paid $159.00. They were selling those like hot bread, LOL. In 1983, while traveling in Spain during the San Fermines, My idiot buddy left the "bear" on the back of a seat on a rental car. Rateros broke the window and took everything from the car. I specifically told my idiot buddy to stay inside the car and keep an eye on our belonging while I was getting the lodging. Sadly, that was not the only time I got my jacket stolen. Something similar happened to me in Italy. However, Not long ago, I purchase the very same model in mint condition. I paid $120.
Did you see the wrist openings? I was looking at the jacket as well. But I do not feel strongly about it.
Seems like the link is the wrongBlatantly fake Buco which seller is representing as real it seems
I’m used to seeing fake designer items on these marketplace sites and clueless people

I noticed that too and made an offer. A little bit wide for me shoulder wise.Instant buy if it were my size. Be aware, sleeves are shortened.
My first jacket purchase in over a year and I have sold 4 or 5 vintage jackets. I do not know I all ready have two Cal racers. I moving to a ranch just outside of Grass Valley CA next week. Once I get settled in I am considering put a couple of jackets on TFL
