    Trying to date this G-1 I just picked up.

    Contract number is: DA-36-243-QM (CTM) 2134

    Any ideas on how to decipher that?

    has a Conmar zipper (silver teeth) so guessing late 50s on this?

    Much appreciated,

    thanks!

    I think the 7823(aer) began in 1951 & ended in 60, so for sure is a 50's jacket. someone will chime in who knows the contracts & can date it a little closer.

    The contract number dates this Foster G-1 to the 1958 fiscal year.

    Just bought a size 48 manufactured with the same contract number. How do you decipher the build date to be fiscal year 1958? I assume that FY58 in that time was July 1957 to Jun 1958? We did not change over to FYs starting in Oct until much later. Your thoughts?

    Cheers,
    Mike

    An extensive list of G-1 contracts and their issue dates is printed in "Full Gear" by Aota Mituhiro.
