Schott 118 or 618?

Just picked this one up, trying to determine model, cow/steer/horse, if insulated and year range. It looks like a 118 or 618 but the half-belt is aligned differently on the back, its almost in line with the top of the kidney belt. There are no tags in any of the pockets but there is a Leathercraft cleaning tag on the inside left. Thanks!

Update: just received this jacket. It's very light and the leather is much thinner/pliable than my Vanson, Langlitz, Fox Creek and Aero. It's definitely a men's jacket (I know Schott makes Women's in Lambskin). Could Schott have make this in Lambskin? Also, there is no snap on the back below the collar.

Without the coin pocket ticket I can determine the style, as you cannot tell the different types of leather by a photo. Based on the label with the motorcycle rider the jacket was made after the mid-1980's. This is not a lambskin jacket nor a horsehide jacket. Gail

Thanks Gail! I've torn it apart looking for the batch tag to no avail, there isn't one. It's a short jacket, measuring 23.5" from the base of collar to the bottom on the back.

I wish I could help you but just based on what you can tell me does not help determine the style number. Gail

Gail, this is the North & Judd buckle used on this jacket, does that narrow it down? The more I wear it the more I think it may be goatskin as well. I may send it in after the new year for a repair. Thanks!

I am really sorry but we bought buckles from North & Judd in the 1980's. This particular miter corner buckle may have been on used a special production we made for a company as it was not the regular coenered bucke we used on the jackets at that time. If it was a special production jacket the missing ticket could have confirmed that as it would have had a different style style number then our stock jackets. GAIL
