The suspenders originally had simple wire buckles on each strap. These are referred to as "4-wire" suspenders and lack the snaps of later suspenders. In 61 specs were changed to make the front hooks out of aluminum and the rear hooks became the standard gated snap. You see these changes in the 1963 production year. A later change in the suspenders was the use of nylon for the underneath padding of the suspender body. These suspenders are typically early 70's production.
