Rattlesnake skin jacket, 1946
Made by a Mr. Payne for Bert Wallace from rattlesnakes he trapped in 1944 on the O-Bar-o Ranch in Kent Co. He was a Trapper for the Federal Government at the time. Given to the Museum of Texas Tech University in 1963. The reason I like this coat is the fact that it is snake skin and the time and effort that went into making this jacket.
