Old Town 7710 or 77107

I have a green and grey Old Town wood-and-canvas canoe with a registration number of either 7710 or 77107. E. Hack is marked on two ribs. It seems to be 16 feet long. I also have two paddles marked Hack. Two photos are attached.

The serial number certainly starts with 7710 but I can't tell if there is a 7 at the end.

The prow has an obscured Old Town plaque. The canoe came into my hands from the Philadelphia PA area.

Can you find the card that says when this canoe was made? Thank you very much.

The Old Town canoes with serial numbers 77101, 77103, and 77105 are all 16 foot long, CS (common sense or middle) grade, gray canoes that shipped on May 7th, 1923 to Edward Hack in Mount Holly, New Jersey as shown below.

These scans and several hundred thousand others were created with substantial grants from the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association (WCHA) and others. A description of the project to preserve these records is available at http://www.wcha.org/ot_records/ if you want more details. I hope that you will join or renew your membership to the WCHA so that services like this can continue. See http://www.wcha.org/wcha/ to learn more about the WCHA and http://www.wcha.org/join.php to join.

You may have another number or manufacturer if these descriptions don't match your canoe. Please reply here if you have any other questions.
