This one is beautiful but the zipper issue is a huge pain and the buckle takes a few minutes too, but AGRAA, these are wonderful jackets! There are still, to be clear, at least three different types/levels/variations of these and not all are the same quality by a big spread.

When you have the time and the inspiration, please post some info on the differences between the various Branded jackets. This would be interesting and helpful to let WE THE LOUNGE scrounge up all the higher quality ones and leave the lessers to the LAY PEOPLE of the world who do not posses our high intelligence and good looks!!!!!!!!

Well, got a couple of more pictures. I wonder how this compares to the Cockpit M51 reproduction, which is new and for about the same price?

https://cockpitusa.com/products/m-51-field-jacket?variant=28424872001629

Nice jacket! That is a pristine Vintage nickel plated (slider, box and puller) Prentice Zipper on that M-1951 M51 FIELD JACKET 1959. However, if you want to find out approximate production date, look into the snaps. They could be Scovill,DOT, or Rau. Hope this helps!

I remember in the late70s those can easily purchase for $ 4.79 at my local surplus store.

That is a lady's jacket. Called the cycle queen. Nice jacket for petite ladies. Very short. No taller than 5'6. The cut for the ladies is usually "adjusted" at the top of the jacket all the way to mid upper part. Brooks and others clearly make these "adjustments".

Here's another Cycle Queen...................... I don't understand why these pop in in MENS JACKETS...........

Shoulder darts are s dead giveaway. I see a ton of cycle queens offered as kings. on ebay too.
