  I was searching for a previous thread...thanks for finding it and reposting it.  Libby-Owen-Ford (LOF) of Toledo, OH was a  vender of windshield safety glass for W-O.  I do not know  when they started to supply glazing or for how long.   I believe I have the two original panes of glass that came with my '46.  I have been wanting to post this question with pictures hoping to confirm that they are indeed original.  I think the etched "7-46" right of the LOF trademark represents the month and year of manufacture.  It would match closely to when I think my '46 was assembled,  October or November of 1946.

 
  Here is a  B& W publicity still picture of LOF manufacturing line in Toledo from the Lucas County (Ohio) Library collection called, Images In Time.  The ladies in their hair nets reminded me of why I preferred to brown bag lunch while in school!  
 
Did W-O take over LOF for an in-house glazing operation much like they did with their coach works with American Central Manufacturing (ACM)?    Did the "Shat-R-Proof" slogan replace "Hi-Test Safety" ?

Joel,
Looking at that picture of the LOF factory, specifically the worker closest to the camera, seems to indicate where "Jackie" worked before marrying "JFK"LOL (can anyone say "doppelganger"?)

Man! That's exactly what I was thinking when I saw the picture and before I read your post.....it's uncanny how much she looks like her.

Here are the markings for the glass on CJ2A 11662. I don't know if they are original or not, but they are a match, which might be an indicator they are. Unlike the GPW and MB stencils I've worked with, I don't recognize the date code on these.

I visited Jerry in CT today and took these images of the glass etchings in #11802. His jeep is incredibly original. I've never seen this pattern before, but then again, I have very limited experience with Willys glass patterns.
