Some great observations! Like many of these models, I refrained from posting most of what I had... so others could "get more involved," sooner... Many good insights gained, with more people's INPUT!

Hereafter's a portion of a 1947 Christmas ad... ALSO showing the "GG" as available, in that year...  (Likely not before mid December, however, for it's debut, then???)


And also a 1949 ad ... for good measure!
