Unfortunately I cannot provide much information on the leather peacoat style140. Our bar codes do not start with an alphbetical letter such as "B " that you have listed, and our bar codes have 10 digits not 9 as you listed. Jackets with bar codes were produced after 1992. The 5 th. digit represents the year a "0" would represent the year 2000 or 2010. In regards to the US740N label we have used this label in our peacoats since the 1970's. Gail

I found my magnifying glass (usually for threading needles and reading obits) and guess the first digit to be an 8 and not a B. It is entirely possible there was another digit before the 8 because the tag appears to be torn at a slight angle and not perpendicular to the base of the tag. But, thank you, all the same, for your efforts.
