Maximuseverus Antiques, Art & Artifacts. WWII USN M-69 F Leather Transport Coat Trenchcoat Navy Pilot. I think it is approximately Size 50-52. ALL ORIGINAL AND COMPLETE. Rare early 1940’s WW2 US Naval Aviator Flight Jacket Overcoat. The M69 was created for long-range missions in cold weather conditions, including the Atlantic. Worn by aircraft carrier pilots, the m69 offered greater protection for sustained periods in the air and over harsh sea weather, most notably on a submarine hunting sorties. The M-69 was later phased out when the G1 flying jacket became more popular but it remains a rare example of 1940s aviation wear. The coat is fully lined with a mouton fur collar, constructed in pure goatskin leather with a fantastic reddish patina. USN tag spec and USN stamp to back collar. Has original belt and features long trench design. Excellent condition, although there is a small worn area on the left collar tip fur. Skip to the beginning of the images gallery.
