Dating vintage Schott Perfecto jacket

I have a vintage Schott Perfecto jacket and I would like to find out what decade/year (approximately) it was manufactured in.

 

I attached a couple of photos of the jacket. The tag has the image of the bull and the text reads: Perfecto by Schott Bros. (The word perfecto is written diagonally across the tag)
The right epulet shows the marks from a star which it previously had.

 

Is this jacket from the 50's or is it from the 60's - 70's?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

I saw this one on ebay and thought it was one of the coolest looking Schott jacket I've ever seen! I would have bid on it but unfortunately not in my size.

According to the Perfecto Wikipedia page your jacket appears to be a brown 613 from the mid - late 70s. I believe it would have been equipped with a triple-stamped Talon main zip but looks like it was replaced along the way:

"Jackets are made out of steerhide (613/618) and naked cowhide (118, introduced in 1977). Neck label is rectangular, creme white with bull in upper left corner, Perfecto in yellow diagonal stripe and by Schott Bros. in lower right corner. Small white size tag with red letters directly to the right of neck label. TALON cuff zippers. Side pockets are at an approx. 55° angle and breast pocket at a 60° angle."
