ELEY-KYNOCH catalog


#1

Does anyone know when this catalog was produced. I haven’t found a date anywhere in it, but on the inside of the back cover is '231/752/657 Printed in Great Britain at THE KYNOCH PRESS, Birmingham. I’m thinking perhaps the 752 indicates July 1952 or the 657 June 1957.

Thanks.

Guy,

I would wager its June, 1957 because its the last set of numbers in the sequence of numbers.

Anything interesting in the catalog you can share here on the forum?

Brian is correct 1957

Any proof it is 1957 except the assumption it is June, 1957 because its the last set of numbers in the sequence of numbers ??

Yes definitely June 1957.
Those numbers are the Eley-Kynoch date code, found on all their catalogs.

Thanks jeanpierre and ArmourerJim. Would I be corect in assuming that the 231 in the number string (231/752/657) is a catalog format or number and not a date?

Here are the 22 rim fire boxes from the cataog:

Guy,
Yes you are correct, those first numbers are a catalog format or number - not the date.
