    Yes it is an original issued B-10. H.Bernstein made a range of flight jackets for the USAAF. The 44-10096 contract dates to the 1944 fiscal year. They used two different labels as did Sovereign for their early contract. These two contractors were the first to be awarded contracts for B-10s and may have initially produced their own labels before the Materiel Division had supplied standard ones.

    Interesting! First I've seen of one of these. There must not have been many that left with those style labels. Cool to see.
