The main Piper J-3 Cub series run from about 2000 to 23180, as a continuation of the earlier Taylor Cub and Piper J-2 Cub. However, some earlier numbers are already officially listed as J-3. These are listed here, but might actually have been J-2 Cubs.
Cxxx and xxxC numbers were constructed in Canada and MDCxxxx numbers in Switzerland (mostly from parts).
The G-xxx series are for the TG-8 glider, most survivors were later converted to regular powered Cubs.
At the end of the listing are several out of sequence numbers which mostly belong to replicas. Some of these might actually have been constructed from specific kit models, but this is not always known.
