What does this mean?

Dear Carly,

Thank you for the additional information and your patience.

The presented object appears to be a black Boston leather bomber or flight jacket. This jacket does not correlate with the common A-2 jacket for the US Air Force during WWII especially the pockets on the front. The inside is custom-made and probably a later addition. On the chest, we see traces of the fixation of a label or something similar.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
