    my friend i showed it to didn't like it & the 65 you gave as the date of the cover is wrong there is a stamp on the brown side of the cover that can be used to date it correctly so if you could provide a picture of this stamp i'll be able to give you correct date.

    yeah i know the forum where you found this date but its been brought to light that there are some aspects of dating these contract numbers is wrong. your cover is what called a long flap version which means the area around where the cover meets the chin strap bail has a gap were as if it was a short flap version you would have to either cut a hole in the cover for the chin strap to pass through or bunch it up around the chin strap area (see pictures below).

    yours being the long flapped version came in to use 1969 onwards.

    hope this makes some kind of sense ?
