the cable a-2 is in super nice, wearable condition. it is completely original. it was made with lighter colored hh, and has worn and faded to an even lighter color. this one was fitted with a kwik zipper, as seen. interesting that the original knits though faded, are in splendid condition. the 39th fs patch is wool chinille, and original to the jacket. if you look closely, you will note the original russet color on the collar back side. no info about the original owner, a.h. wood. as is often the case with original cable a-2s, this one is an easy comfy wearer.
