118 dating and belt buckle
Watch this Post
I recently bought this new 118. There is no imprint anywhere on the belt buckle, an arrow leathercare label on inside liner, and chain zippers and a button for the belt buckle. The jacket did not come with any tags when I bought it. As I understand the 5th digit in the barcode is the year, but is this a 92, 02, or 12 year? Is it standard that there is nothing stamped on the belt buckle?

Thanks for the authentication and year confirmation Gail!  I was unsure why the belt buckle did not have century canada imprinted on the underside, I guess that is no longer imprinted on there.

The Century buckle was a company we purchased the buckles from for several years. We no longer purchase these buckles from this company as they closed their manufacturing facility. Going forward we are now having made and will be using this type of buckle on ourjackets but it will have the "Schott" logo on the back of the buckle. Gail
