That 16159 is one example of only 9700 jackets made under that contract according to Eastman’s book. Speaking of it, does anyone has an original 16159 label that might want to sell. Looking for one....

I think you're getting at a question I've had for a little while now - Eastman's guide gives the dates for when the contracts were let (FWIW, for the 16159 it was Nov. 2 1940), but how long was it from getting the contract to delivering the finished product?

1940 is good enough for me, and it confirms some earlier findings. I’m looking for a mid-30’s, #6 Talon, probably brass.
