    That's pretty slick, sir. Chalk it up as another thing I've never seen before, and didn't know existed (I get a lot of those here). Wink

    Good find on the tank jacket! I've got the overalls but the jacket has always escaped my grasp...

    Thanks mrf2. Would the label in your tank suit be any more legible than my example?

    Filupe-

    Slightly... my coverall is about brand new (still has the paper lot number tag in the pocket) and the tags are hard to read. Production date of 1984,

    Thanks a lot mrf2! My suit has not seen a lot of wear so I was quite surprised to see the tags so faded. It also looks like it has been hung near a window for some time hence the streak of sun fade down one side.
