Damn!! Foiled again by TFL Radar........... And I woulda got away with it too if it wasn't for you Kooky Kids!!!!! (mask torn off by ScoobyDoo and his stoner buddies)...... ThunderDome comin!!!!!! Or worse...............

Ha, don’t blame me. I proposed years ago that only sales with a BIN be posted. Some of us put in work and should be able to go for the auctions against just the usual suspects. I was shot down like the idiot brother in Legends of the Fall. Haha.

Sears MC jackets with the fieldmaster label are not that common. The first use of the Fieldmaster labels I found is 1955.

Check out the thread:https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/sears-motorcylce-jacket-history-1949-1963.101311

There were several makers for Sears through the years. I do associate Fieldmaster jackets with Appalachian. This same jacket may show up with no label, Hercules label, maybe Oakbrook. Again they have to match. Did you get a picture of the epaulets?

This is from the 1956 catalog.

T. love the research you have done, and I thank you for sharing with us. The company producing this jacket was doing a much better-quality jacket in a (sample I currently own) in 1954. The newer labels after 56 were not as good in quality. However, I have not seen many with my own eyes. I am particular found of that 54 I own. I found one after talking to a very well-liked museum curator I had the honor to meet in person. He also had an authentic 50s cycle king.
