    Formerly the property of VICE ADMIRAL USN (Ret.) N. Ronald Thurman



    This jacket is absolutely wonderful--both in itself, and because of its provenance! This was formerly the property of Vice Admiral N. Ronald Thurman, the Vice Admiral of the USN who oversaw the undersea exploratory expedition that discovered the remains of the Titanic. (The USN was not interested in the Titanic, but in two sunken naval nuclear submarines; the Titanic just happened to be in the same area!) Because of this, one of Thurman's many distinctions is that for a short period of time only he and the oceanographer in change of the expedition at sea knew that the Titanic had been found.

    If you're a Titanic buff, this would make this jacket pretty darn appealing. But even if you're not, the jacket's appealing in and of itself! Cut from a lovely dark bottle-green cloth (no Master's comments here!) with a wonderful hand and drape this features subtle darts and flapped pockets. It is fully lined, and half-canvassed. It features a single centre vent, and four kissing metal cuff buttons on each sleeve; these have a wonderful metallic tone that complements the cloth beautifully.

    It was Made in Canada by Paul Stuart.

    This jacket is in excellent condition except for a minor smudge on one sleeve, which might or might not come out with dry-cleaning; hence, this is in Very Good condition only.

    As such, given the provenance of this jacket, as well as its quality and beauty, how about just $49 > 40 > 35, boxed and shipped in CONUS, with lower offers being VERY welcome? International inquiries are also welcome, with shipping at cost!

    Please PM with interest and offers!
