    Hi,

    I know nothing about vintage fashion and I was hoping someone here could tell me anything about this coat in the attached pictures. Thee were a couple of hits on here rega4ding the ‘Tucson Fur Skins’ label, but that label looks pretty generic, and this coat has a different appearance to the ones in the thread I found.

    The coat is probably at least 50 years old.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Caryn will probably be able to help you with your coat.

    Thank you for those additional images. Very pretty coat. It is faux fur and I think it's intended to look like sheared beaver.

    Hi Caryn - thanks for answering so quickly.

    So fake fur - any idea if it is worth anything? I thought that the Tuscan ‘made from fur skins’ label would have been reserved for real fur?

    Regards,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    I’m unable to offer any advice on what the value might be but there are genuine Tuscan furs too so that’s just their branded label.
