I always thought they were 60s. They're on my 60s Brooks cr.
I had them on a 60 gold label as I recall.
It feels 60's Marc, I wonder if Cal sold pre-loved CHPs to Patrolmen

Any tells I might find from the main zip?

That talon was used from the 60s on through the 80s/90s. Send pics of the stop. IMO the main way to start dating Cals is by the hide. So many were customized, based on a contract or so well-used that hardware was swapped but the hide was pretty much the hide.

I always think mid-later 60s into 80s with the teardrop pulls. None of this is an exact science. It’s a great effin’ jacket!!

My oldest sons wedding today. It was a 50's-mobster themed wedding. I said "I think I might have something that will work" :) The @regius square pocket, cap and a tie and I'm the talk of the party. I said "but I dress like this everyday" and my son said " yes, and you look like a mobster most days", smart ass!
