Custom 1950's Leather Motorcycle Jacket

The jacket is in fantastic condition with no wear and no damage! It one of the most rare and uncommon biker jacket I have ever seen during my time selling and collecting vintage. The zip pulls are Acme and Talon zips which both dating back to the 1950's and the lightweight aluminum buckle is also an indication of a pre-1960's jacket. There is cotton corduroy lining the sleeves which was a common practice for jackets back in the 50's. Since the label is missing I cannot tell you who manufactured it but by the overlock and stitching I can tell it was tailored to fit and not made on a manufacturing line.

Exterior: polished steerhide (you can tell by the texture and grain of the leather) black leather outer shell
100% quilted nylon lining
Cotton corduroy lined sleeves Belted waist with aluminum buckle
2 hand pockets
1 small snap pocket
Condition: Considering the age of the jacket I would say it is a 9 out of 10 condition although it is missing the zip pulls at the cuff (they still zip with ease) and patch at lower back removed (iron cross?)
Size 38? 40?

Measurements taken in inches while jacket was laid flat:

across shoulders: 17"
