    Nice find. M-65's are almost always worth picking up. Not quite sure what the date is on this one. Usually the DSA number will have a two digit number in the middle, which signifies the year of manufacturer. See the photo below. White label is pre 1985, though.

    If I recall correctly, some of the earlier Vietnam era pieces had numbers without the year. Could be a pre-1968 M65, but I think the font on the size labels were a little different on those earlier pieces. .

    @Mr G from SD Thanks, that's great! Gotta say, this is shaping up to be a good week!

    I'll admit I was hoping I'd win this one and already had my idea for the next hunt worked out.


    The Next Hunt!

    The theme is James Bond (surprise!)

    Here's how it works: Below is the list of the ten items you need to find. You need to find all 10 items to win the hunt. Certain items also have bonus points (1 bonus point per item). In the event of a tie (i.e. two or more people finding all 10 items), the winner will be the person with the most bonus points. These bonus points also relate to the prize, so it'll pay to earn as many as you can! More on that at the end of the post. To keep things real, your pictures need to include you making a "gun" with your hand, like this:

    [​IMG]


    What you need to find

    1. One item displaying the name or logo of one of the following 007 brands: Rolex, Slazenger, or Aston Martin

    2. A white formal/tuxedo shirt

    3. The widest solid pink tie you can find (Bonus point: identify the Bond movie in which this item appeared)

    4. A cocktail shaker (Bonus point if you can include a martini glass in the photo)

    5. A DVD/Bluray/VHS of a Bond movie (Bonus point if it is Never Say Never Again or the 1967 Casino Royale)

    6. A "spy" gadget you think would make Q proud.

    7. A piece of copper cookware (Bonus point: identify the Bond movie in which this item appeared)

    8. A white bikini (Bonus point: identify the Bond movie in which this item appeared)

    9. A white cat stuffed toy (Bonus point: identify the Bond character that owns the cat)

    10. An item related to the Nintendo 64 Goldeneye video game


    The Prize(s)

    Given the fact that it is very expensive a) to ship things to me and b) for me to ship things, I will be forfeiting my prize from the @Mr G from SD scavenger hunt. That means you have prize options! You can pick one of the following:

    Prize Option 1: One of the prizes previously offered by Mr G from SD. Here they are again:

    Winner may choose one of the following:
    1. Brand new pair of Alden dust bags (great for the thrifted pair of Aldens)
    2. 2 Polo T-Shirts. Hawaiian print in XL, and Polo Bear in L.
    3. 2 Recent Zegna dress shirts. Tagged Sz 15.5, regular fit.
    4. 3 Zegna ties.

    [​IMG]


    Prize Option 2: Donation

    I will donate $40 to the charity of the winner's choice in the winner's name. Now here's where the Bonus Points come in. For each bonus point the winner has earned, I will donate an additional ten dollars. There are six bonus points you can earn, so that's potentially another $60 I will donate, for a total of $100.

    And, if @Tyrone MacStiophain is cool with it, I will also donate the cigar I won from him!


    The Deadline

    I would love to give you (00)7 days! But being an MI6 agent with a license to kill is a high pressure job. So all entries must be submitted by midnight CST (UTC -6), Sunday, April 9th.


    You have your mission. Good luck and happy hunting!

    Since John offered to forfeit his prize, I am happy to offer the same prize choices for this week's winner.

    On a side note, found a few minutes to hit one thrift store while I was in Los Angeles last night. Got these Asics Gel Lyte III's for $10. Giving 'em a test run today.

    I actually just listened to that song for the first time in a long time. Heartbreaking. John Prine is great.

    Thanks,@Nataku. I was looking for that middle, 2-digit number. I'll have to do more research, because if it's really pre-68, it's in amazing condition.

    Happy to offer the cigar to this scavenger hunt winner. I was wondering what hoops I'd have to jump to ship a cigar south of the border.

    this is great.

    If I may make a suggestion - while prizes are extremely generous, I dont think its necessary to have them though. We should just play for bragging rights and just to have the right to start the next scavenger hunt.

    If I may be so bold.

    Yeah, well you started it!

    Seriously, I'm fine with a prize for mine since I already announced it (assuming Mr G from SD agrees). If the next person just wants to go for bragging rights, I personally wouldn't mind. I'm in it for the fun

    I guessed 1978 yesterday because for some weird reason, I thought I saw a DLA prefix on the tag but looking back at your pics, I see it's DSA 100 prefix but without a 3 digit date code, which was only introduced in 1967. 1965 had a different DSA prefix and date code. 1966 had DSA-100 prefix and no date code, like yours. I would think that means it's from '66.
