The description says 1st pattern and it appears to be (made with out shoulder straps) which would make it very early. If I remember right they only made them that way for about a year.

Yes it is very early, the number DSA-100 was only used in 1966 and the shoulder straps were quickly added. I expect the price of this jacket to shoot up at the end as it is a very hard to find pattern and there are a lot of people watching it and I am sure more now that it is posted here.
