Cool- October 1966 ad date fits nicely.     You have good eyes...I can't see if it's a D or a B :)  but you had the original PDF's so I'll take your word for it...
EDIT:  Is the price in that ad $39.95?  There's appx 40 something variants of Sea King in 1961-64 model lists, and some entries give dial color, gold color etc....
