Hi folk,
I recently bought a G1 jacket at good price, it has no label, zipper is Scovill, the collar is in dark brown mouton (probably synthetic), it has USN punched vertically on the windflap (U atop the S, and the S atop the N) it is not written as it is generally found: horizontally from left to right, from the bottom to the top.
The skin is in brown but not too dark, it’s not too thick and probably is goatskin.

The seller told me it is a 70s vietnam war jacket.

All this information makes me think that it is a 1970s g1 probably Brill Bros, it’s that possible?Can anyone give me some more information (age,contract number)?

How about the strange vertical perforation “USN” on windflap?

Thanks a lot

I have seen quite a few vertical perforation “USN”. It is not very strange or uncommon. Could be a Ralph Edwards. Here is one.

I didn’t know that,
Yes it’s quite similar to that model.

I knew mouton collar changed to synthetic around the 70s, as mine probably is.
