Default 1979 VIN Door Jamb Sticker. Need Info

I recently ordered and received today a blank door jamb sticker for my 1979. The original was torn off by a painter two years ago. I know my VIN but I forget the other info for a 1979
-is the Date 11/78 such as for November 1978?
-what is the GVWR?
-what is the GAWR FRT?
-what is GAWR RR?

If someone with a 1979 could take a peek at their sticker and give me this info it would be very much appreciated. Also care to speculate on the font and font size used?

GVWR is the gross vehicle weight rating. Maximum permissable load, including car, fuel, passengers, luggage.

The others are max for f and r axles

Paul,

Where did you get that sticker?? The same thing happened to me when I had my car repainted and it was bead-blasted off. I have looked everywhere for another sticker, but I was able to find the only the tire sticker.
