Federal 10 gauge 00 buck

Does anyone here have any idea from what year Federal introduced their 10 gauge 00 Buckshot cartridges ?
I really appreciate any help.
Buck .

If anyone could even identify the earliest catalog which lists it , it would be a big help.
Federal 10 gauge 00 Buckshot copper plated

From “Federal Cartridge Co. Shot Shell Ammunition” by David Frederickson, states that "First 10 gauge buckshot load added in 1982. Granulated filler added in 1983. “Premium” buckshot loads with copper plated shot first appeared in 1988, again as per Frederickson’s book. Hope this helps… Jim Eichas
