U.S.A.A.F. B-4 Life-vest


Code: SOLD-1309

Fully AAF marked. Date of manufacture is March 29th 1944 with a later inspection date stamp of 12/45. The material remains flexible and has quite good colour but is a bit grubby and has dye marker type staining to the lower right front area. It retains all of its straps but the end of the waist strap is severed (see photos) and the metal componants have some rusting and vergidris. The CO2 bottle holders are in position complete with pull strings and one retains the screw-on cover. Both inflation tubes/valves are present and in good condition. Overall this is a reasonably good used life-vest. Stock code MW17229.
