Jeep in back has no “X”. I think it is 39, otherwise could be 59.

    I’ve added a pic of the rear jeep. It lacks an “X” and seems to read 39, but could be 59.

    I can’t make out the X number on the jeep in the back, appears lower and older. I wonder about the color difference, is the back one still olive drab while the newer one is harvest tan. I don’t know much about the early jeep colors.
