I found the company that made this coat so I can write them to try to get a more exact date. Hopefully the family has some ads for this coat too. I'm curious about the fur though since the pieces that it's made from are so long and skinny. It feels like the same fur as the one ID'd by Caryn as Mouton but that coat was made from large pieces. The fur is a bit wavy but all the same length. If it's the same animal, maybe it's the extras left over from the sheep, like legs and tails? If so, nice that nothing gets wasted but what a lot of work! Thanks for any help offered!
