C703 would be the third Paramount frame scheduled for March, 1967, production. The number should be stamped into the left (non drive-side) rear dropout and also stamped into the fork steerer tube.
The First Serialized Date Code
This system was used from January 1966 through 1969. It consisted of three components -
• Month Code: This one letter code corresponds to the month with A=January, B=Febuary and so on. Because I is not used, September=J and December=M.
• Year Code: This one digit code is the last digit of the year - 6 is 1966.
• Sequence Number: This two digit number represents the nth frame and/or fork scheduled during the month.
For example, H763 is the sixty-third frame or fork scheduled during August of 1967.
It's in pretty rough shape. The SunTour RD and the kickstand would not have been original.
