We all have said, "Just never know what you may find at the bottom of the barrel." A few years back that was what an old girlfriend said when she saw me unexpectably.
Stopped at a yard sale today, they had no knives but I did find a QUEEN distribution catalog -- or at least parts of one (14 pages in a folding cover). Nice pictures with some description of knives, and an order sheet with prices. It is titled as "CATALOG 50", but no date of issue. I hope somebody may have a clue of issue date or tell me what to look for to answer my own question. Thanks
Just found a recent post on news about Queen. It had a dialoge box going to Historical Catalogs. It lists Catalog 50 being from 1972-78, so I think that answers my question. Thanks to all anyway.
