Chestnut: Has Anyone Seen This Id Tag Before?

    I just picked up another old canoe. I believe it is a Chestnut. Under the forward seat is a wooden ID tag screwed to the inside of the canoe with some information stamped into it.

    I would like to try and identify the model and approximate year of the canoe if anyone can help.
    I appears that it has original paint and canvas and is in overall good condition. 15' long, tapered keel.

    Thanks for the help.

    Thanks Andre. Any idea on approximate year? What is "older", what decade or decades? Thanks
