Good point Rob. I mis-interpreted what may be a part number (DND 83) for a contract date. Checked my Canadian microfiche from 1985 and it does not go this high in part numbers.

An opportunity presented itself a couple of weeks ago but I was unable to say anything at the time owing to Operation St. Nick OPSEC restrictions. Needless to say that restriction is now over and I can reveal what Santa left me. He did an awful job of wrapping it, it was casually left n the bed of the truck, but hey ho its home.

A somewhat dated version, 1970 if my eyes don't deceive me, but looks like every other toboggan I have seen except that the painted markings are new to me.

This was quite a score as far as I am concerned, in as much as it is complete and not damaged, just heavily used. As a welder I love the symmetry of the tig welds down the runner troughs on the underside. I am not sure exactly what the runners themselves are made from, I may have some new ones coming, we will see.

As far as the cover goes, I have a new one on the shelf but will wait a while before I fit that as this one is still usable as is.

The two harnesses and their ropes are old and the rope needs replacing if I can find some of the same material for those. The handle is not bent, seen many that were.

In general I am very happy to have acquired this. Thank you Santa.

The runners are described as "phenolic plastic". I have always considered them as nylon. I used to cut up the old ones to make windshield installation tools for the Jeeps etc.
