No rips, tears but there are worn marks from rubbing against equipment in the cockpit, see pics. The left side belt loop has fraying, probably from Shoulder Holster rubbing against it. Fabric has light fading from age and storage. Its been in a storage bin for decades with Cedar Blocks.
The Pilots name is hard to decipher, looks like T. Domin, which may be short for Dominic. Research on WWII Pilots did not turn up his name. Ive noticed that there are records missing for many Pilots in the Africa and Italian Campaigns.
Shoulder to shoulder is approx 20" Armpit to armpit is approx 21". The Stencil below his name shows the P-38 Lightning image. The Pockets were converted to zippered, they work well for their age, see pics. The Sleeve Zippers may not be original, see pics. Hanger on back of neck which was issued cloth or leather has been replaced with metal chain, see pic.One of the underarm vent holes is missing the metal ring. All snaps on the neck, arms and legs are there and work fine. I remember as a kid in the 60s building the P-38 Lightning Model. It was a amazing Fighter and Bomber.
Its in amazing shape and the Pilots name and the P-38 Stencil and the custom add-ons make it a must have.
