This vintage Peters leather jacket sold on eBay quite a while ago, I’ve just been a little skeptical of it selling for this price so I refrained from posting about it. I haven’t seen it relisted, nor have I seen it show up anywhere else, so I guess the sale was legitimate. No doubt the Peters label is super rare. In fact, I can’t remember one popping up on eBay anytime in the last several years. It was first offered up on eBay as a Buy It Now or Best Offer (BINOBO) for $8,500 and the offer price that was finally taken was near the 8 stacks price of $7,700…
It is a beautiful jacket with plenty of great patina, excellent back detailing and all the original working zippers! That Art Deco Talon zipper is gorgeous and it looks like all the o-pull rings even exist! Just missing the leather laces for the sides.
If anyone knows where this jacket went, please let me know. I’d like some better photos of it. ..and maybe to try it on.
