That makes sense they were on punch cards, one step better than hard copies, unless he also has the computer to compile all of the data and convert into more friendly modern computer languages. A lot of punch cards, must have been hundreds of boxes.

Thanks David, I'll see if all of your codes are in there.

Yes, same spreadsheet, just the different format. Some folks using older programs can't open the .xlsx.

I use a lot of spreadsheets in my line of work, still working part time. I am a civil engineer specializing in traffic engineering and transportation planning. I review and analyze huge amounts of data. Freight analysis data I get from the USDOT are thousands of lines of data, crash data from the states aren't as big, but when looking at crash data from places like Las Vegas they will run into a few thousand lines. So, I use a lot of formulas and sorting and filtering to extract what I need. The latest Excel spreadsheets can hold most of the data I use, used to have to start with Access to break it down into spreadsheet size.

If anyone has any codes that don't show up in the buck tag sheet, let me know and I'll see if I can track them down.
Hi Don,
Thanks for the great lists, lots of good info there.
I know this thread is a little old but I'd like to ask about my buck tag.
I found all the codes from my Buck tag except one.
If you look at the tag for my 73 vert, (I found it on drivers side behind the HL bucket) I see a "CHR" but I couldn't find it on the list and was wondering if I overlooked it.
Also, does anyone know anything about the "A", upper left corner or the "M" on bottom edge?
Thanks again for maintaining such a great resource.

The CHR may be some option that is convertible specific. I couldn't find it in any of my references. If you have a Marti Report you might post it in the Marti Reports section of the forum, maybe we can find something in it that fits.
The A and M are likely inspector's marks.
