For G-1 flight jackets, in 1968 the D series was introduced and many of the jackets now had a fake fur collar instead of the mouton used in all of the earlier jackets. The D series G-1 jackets were still goatskin and were relatively common. These D Series jackets do tend to make great everyday wearers.
Note, contractor BRILL BROS., INC., produced these jackets from approx 1968 through about 1987.
