Vintage sealskin Jacket - $995 (Juneau)

Vintage sealskin Jacket. It has a zip up front. The zipper is large and thick, which dates it to pre-marine mammal protection act.
It has pockets. The lining is excellent. Probably 1950's. Certainly before the 1960's as they never would have used such a wide metal zipper in the '60's. The label is from the Anchorage Fur Factory. Note the pre-zip code label. I have priced it low to allow for repairs.

Issues: on the neck is a thumbnail size piece of the fur missing (can be patched), and a repair area on left back sleeve not so noticeable.

Size: feels like S - M ( Please refer to measurements)

Measurements were taken with the garment laying flat:
Shoulder : 16"
Sleeve : 24 3/4"
Armpit to Armpit: 21 3/4"
Waist: 22"
Hips : 22 1/2"
Length: 29"

A similar jacket purchased today from an Alaska Native will cost thousands of dollars.
I can mail this. Shipping would be $18 within Alaska
