my 1st post.

I recently purchased a HD jacket on ebay. Double breasted, old cycle king style. The snaps are coins, nickles and quarters. anyone have an idea when these coins were used on jackets? thanks. opr1945

Please post a few close up photos of your jacket and we might be able to help you out with it.

While I’m guessing a bit here , I’d say if you want to date this particular jacket it would be better to focus on the components and construction of the jacket as opposed to the coins. I would ask what year the coins are dated as this might give you a general time frame of production . I recall seeing these coin concho jackets back in the 70s from Harley Davidson, but that’s the best I can offer. So what do the coin dates say?

I know..... you get caught up in the process and overlook the details . Happens to me ALL the time :)
Interesting coin dates . Does it mean the jacket’s that old.., I really doubt it but more research required I guess .

At the first sight it looks to be a modern jacket, definitely not a vintage one. What's on that small tag which is sewn right in collar seam (I mean that small teg which is right next to size tag "42")?

!990s to 2005 in that range probably made in Korea .Harley went in for this boutique thing around that time jackets hats hemets sweat shirts blah blah blah .The coins ar made in china and are not real you can buy them at any leather crafting place .These would of been fitted on the jacket when made for HD its just a look .

small tag says made in Korea. being made in Korea and with the embossing on pocket I didn't think it was real old like WW2 vintage. but curious none the same. if it was made in 1990 it would be old enough to get an antique license plate here in Michigan.
