USAAF B-4 lifevest

Code: MW23477

SOLD

Vest, Pneumatic Life, Type AN6519-1.  Date of manufacture ? 1945.  The material has stiffened and is quite faded and worn with frayed holes in places.  The manufacturer's details are no longer legible and whilst 1945 can be seen of the date, the month is not visible.  The 'sides' of the vest retain much deeper colour and two small fabric pouches remains in place.  The vest retains its securing straps, all of which are in very good condition.  It also has both CO2 bottle holders complete with screw-on covers and pull-strings.  The inflation tubes/valves are present and in very good overall condition.   Stencilled with the owner's name.  Procured for use by the AAF and USN.  A somewhat 'tired' but perfectly displayable example.  Priced accordingly.
