The start date may have been late 1972. According to Richard Sachs, Witcomb USA started in 1971, but the frames we now know and love didn't start being made by Richard and J. P. Weigle until a couple years later, when the original business plan wasn't panning out. Weigle was at Witcomb England during most of '72. Witcomb USA serial numbers start with a 2-digit year, followed by the sequence number of the frame, so 7529 is the 29th frame made in 1975.
