Default folding stretcher

as long as I have this thing out I have taken a few pictures of it. it's a first gen Ferno - Washingtom folding stretcher. some times called a road flat hangings stretcher and a number of other terms if you had to be the one to get it out of the storage box. I have been informed that the black usually means military surplus as they used the dark color on all there stuff. but I have seen some in the blue gray to come from there. this one has the spring loaded locks on the hoops that form the leg hand holds. i have been told by more then one person that they would pop out if you got it into a bind and the leg would then swing around dropping the pt 6 inches really fast. should be correct for 55 -mid 60s. but is period correct for any up to today this kind of stuff never gets thrown out. here is the group shots

John,

If you could post the serial number of the cot, I could tel you the date when it was produced (give or take a few months).

Based on the serial number, the cot was probably manufactured between October - December 1969.

how about the j 67231 number. thats off a #30 I have. if the folding cot was build in late 69 then it's a good match for the 72-73 cars I have it in.
