Default Can Anyone ID this Maine jersey?

Picked this one up for dirt cheap, but have no idea what team it is from.
It doesn't match the UMaine colors, nor do I think it matches the Maine Guides (the minor league team back in the '80's).

I thought Little League or High School maybe, but the numbers are sewn on and not silk screened. Would schools pay for sewn on logos? I know my high school sure didn't back in the day.
Legion League or something maybe?
I also can't think of a High School team that would use a "Maine" logo.

I am guessing late '70's or '80's?
Anyone recognize it?

Thanks,
Sean

I grew up in Maine and can only think that there are several "U Maine" campus' across the state and it might be U. Maine Farmington or another lower level college team.

That tag dates to 1974-77, in 1973 and earlier, there was a red line between the instructions and the size. In 1978 The circled R was moved lower to the bottom of the N in Wilson.

It's a long shot, but there six other towns in the US, outside of Maine, named "Maine".

Good call, I would search around Chicago and Skokie first, one thing I leaned about collecting minor/college/HS is they tend to use more local suppliers.

Joe and Jim have probably zeroed right in on it.
Maine Township comprises several Cook County / Chicago suburbs
and has a long-running youth hockey programme.
