You may need to create/be part of a secret “enthusiastic amateurs “ cabal to do surely !
Im holding off making this "public" at the moment
Well this has really turned the contract list saga upside down !! Thanks to Grant for helping me in my quest i have noticed that many of the contract number/order numbers shown here in Aota's list for B3's are also showing for D1's .
Aero Leather Contract W535 -AC- 17755 is shown for B3 /A3 set
The same contract number is also shown in the D1 /B1 list
That’s strange. At risk of asking too much, does that jibe at all with your list?
Dave , the list i put together for B3 contracts is now " null and void" at this moment in time .
But i do have concrete evidence from my lists that show "Jackets Mechanics D1 " with the contract number shown in the B3 list . Im trying to work out if the author of FULL GEAR has either made a mistake ( which i doubt somehow, but plausible )
Also wasnt there a list on here somewhere that someone rolleyes posted regarding the B3 makers ?
What would be helpful now is a pic that if an original Aeroleather Beacon B3 label with that contract number on it and also the D1 with the same contract number
And my Type A3 trousers
Wonder until how long this will be spread about the hobby ?? and i find it posted elsewhere !
Anybody have any feasible ideas ??
Its got my head battered !!
Seriously , im at a loss as to why there are 2 identical contract numbers for 2 different items .First time i have come across anything like this .
Im wondering if an email to Aota san is worth a try ?
Do you have Western Lea.(ther?) Clothing Co on the B-1 list. Donny see it listed.
Dave , yes Western leather are listed . Ok if i show you them on the list tomorrow ?
IIRC Western Leather were a later contract . 43 or 44
Dave , here you go . this is the only contract ( over 50k) that Western Leather had for the AC
Looks like AEROLEATHER Beacon NY , ROUGHWEAR and PERRY seem to have followed suit in using the same contact numbers for both the B3 and D1 ?
Can I edit
Looks like The AAF seem to have used the same contract numbers for both the B3 and D1 in orders placed with AEROLEATHER BEACON ROUGHWEAR and PERRY ?
yeah sure Ken , have i written somthing down wrong ???
The first draft reads (to me) that the maker issued the contact numbers not the AAF as would have been the case.
See what you mean Ken hope the edit reads ok now ?
