Offered here is this scarce L-2A made by the prominent A. This contact is one of only 3 made for the L-2A between 1951 and 1952, which makes them quite scarce.Unfortunately, I was not able to get any info from the original owner nor the reason for the patches. Although I have seen a couple examples issued to Civil Air Patrol pilots many years after Korean War. This example comes in the iconic Air Force Blue nylon. The exterior shell is in good condition, considering it is 60 years old, but could use a wash as it was stored for many years. Conmar zippers are working properly. The inner lining is in great condition. The cuffs were replaced at some point, and still keeps its original waistband.
Original label still attached and marked as a 38, but in my opinion it fits more like a 42 (M). Make sure to check the measurements. This is a great piece from Korean War Era and still in wearable condition. Let me know if you have any question.
