1940s C. C. Filson Mackinaw Cruiser Hunting Jacket

This is a late 40s Filson jacket that was rescued from a trip to the dump.  Even with the few moth bites to it, we picked it up and set it to auction.

This is one of the 16 oz.wool surge jackets that were very popular amongst Pacific Northwest foresters, lumberjacks and firefighters as well as hunters.

 The auction was pretty uneventful, probably because fall/winter clothing sales are low this time of year, but whoever got it found a great gem of an item in a sea of eBay crap.
