Alright, so I was at an estate sale today & found this coat for $10. I've done some research on the company, and it appears that they merged with Wilson's Leather in '88. The history of the company is here: http://www.startribune.com/business/13903971.html?refer=y As you'll see on the label it says: "Gunuine Leather by Berman Buckskin co. Minneapolis, Minn." So I believe it is post 1946 because "1946: Wearing fur is unpopular after World War II, and the store is reinvented as Berman Buckskin, with fringed deerskin jackets and Indian motifs marketed to tourists." whereas before that time I don't believe they went by Berman Buckskin. Even though I believe the fur is real fur. then it must be pre '88, because of the merge. I was a little surprised that there wasn't anything on Wilson Leather, or Berman Buckskin on the label guide! I can take more pictures, but let me know what you guys think! It is in absolute incredible condition. I'd bet she never even wore it! Ps. the pictures don't give the coat justice! Thanks again, everyone! You guys are amazing!
