This Jacket is certainly one of the coolest historical Black Sabbath items ever ! The jacket was bought by Tony Iommi in 1969 and wore it out through Sabbath's early tours adding stickers and patches along the way.The Jacket was donated by Tony Iommi to Hard Rock and is currently in display at Hard Rock in Berlin,Germany.
