- Significance Of "453" Regarding Oakley?

Ok, The story on the #453 on the Oakley tank was not anything specific relating to Oakley. The tanks actual serial number when sold was #453. There were three tanks that were shipped from over seas to a company in Nevada. The tanks were decommissioned and made available for public purchase. # 452, 453, 454. Oakley bought #453 and over time the tank number had worn off. There repainted it and it became more visible. So basically it was the tanks original serial number.
