I recently obtained this jacket, and clues make me think it is a Schott Perfecto 118.  Do my photos show enough to say for sure? If so, what period might it be from?

Though the jacket is close in styling to our classic 118/618 motorcycle jackets, this jacket is not a Schott jacket. I am not sure what the name on the sleeve zipper pull is, but I am not familiar with this particular zipper pull. The most telling that it is not a Schott is the front buckle, which is called a "End" bar buckle as the belt is attached to the end bar of the buckle, all our buckles are "Center" bar buckles as the belt is attached to the center bar of the buckle. Finally the contact label sewn in the jacket, this is not a label we ever used, the content of our jackets were on a hangtag attached to the jacket, we did not use sewn-in labels, until recently and they are black in color. The jacket does appear to be old based on the old Leathercraft Process care label with only their NY address on it, which would be from te 70's to 2003, then the label added there NJ location to the label.
