Let's find out what year my new (very old) 618 (or 118) was made!

Hi, recently I caught the Perfecto-bug again and purchased a vintage one on ebay in really good condition (considering its age). Theres a tiny white tag in the coin pocket that just says "Lot Size 40" in blue letters.

Key features are:

- Miter buckle

- Vinyl on bottom inside 

- SCHOTT main zipper

- EMAR sleeve zippers

- No underarm footballs

- No stars on epaulettes

- Straight lower back panel

- Zippers close "down"

It has a lot of features in common with 70's jackets which makes me think very early 80's, what do you guys say?

Hello i would say something like mid 80's, i owned few jackets with exact same zippers which were from mid 80's, or earlier

During 83 and 84 jackets had a pocket ticket saying "Schott"

So i would say 81/82 or 85/86, something like that

 

Gail haven't posted recently, hopefully she will comeback

 Since it has the Miter buckle and vinyl on the bottom inside, 81-82 makes sense. Thanks for your input.

Nice find, looks to be in beautiful condition.

 

I have one that is identical to yours but the main zipper is a Talon. I got it with the fur collar, hanger and the tags still attached. The tag says it's a 618.

Sounds interesting! Could you post some photos of it?

Great! Very similar to mine except for the main zipper, does the pockets on yours close up or down?

They zip down to close and are the regular rings not the chevron type. (Just realized they are not visible in any of the pics...lol)

So, we have two beautiful examples of early 80's Perfectos (80-82) confirmed by Gail. Great find!

 

Get well soon Gail!
