I just picked up an old vest on ebay thinking to make a speedrail vehicle mount with the socket block. When I received it I became very curious as to where it falls in the timeline of vests and if it's the oringal steadicam vest. I found the attached picture of Garrett Brown wearing a very similar vest in The Shining. I noticed the Logo in the picture on the front of the vest and peeled back the velcro over the font of mine to find the same Brown steadicam logo.
Vintage Vest. Can you identify it?

Is there a serial number?
Not that I could find. unless it's under some of the velcro there's no marking on the vest aside from the brown logo. Would love to know who it had belonged to.

I think what you refer to as the "brown-logo" is the logo of "CP", "Cinema Products Inc.". The company that manufactured the first steadicams together with Garrett Brown.
