Would somebody have any info they could share or remember on the 1982 Oklahoma Diamond Jubilee commemorative. Also looking for the ad, magazine advertisements, Dealer order form, etc. Any reply is appreciated.

Oklahoma Diamond Jubilee; mfg. 1982 cal.32-40, 23" rnd. bbl. 4 capacity mag., 1001 pieces produced at New Haven, gun is blued with gold bbl.band, trigger, mag. plug and butt plate. Ceramic stock medallion  is the seal of Oklahoma. A real diamond in the front site. Gold filled etching on the r'cver includes  Indian buffalo hunter on horseback, banner reads 1907--1983, 46th state, on L side, Ok. Dia. Jub. emblem, state flag, a buffalo. Bbl. engraved Oklahoma Diamond Jubilee. The box is very ornate with Indian, buffalo, cowboy/girl, and game scenes. I would have to dig through My pile of Win. adv ertising etc. to see if I have anything related to the O.D.J. The O.D.J.,in My opinion, is one of the nicer and better finished of the commemoratives and is not plentiful to find in pristine cond.

Thank you Henry for the info. Let me know if you find an advertisement for this gem. I acquired one unfired in pristine condition and really want to know how they were distributed or advertised.

I have one also, mine came through Interstate Distributing in Little Rock, AR. Don't know if I have one, but I'll bet there were ads in American Rifleman and other magazines of that time. IMG_0388.JPGImage EnlargerIMG_0392.JPGImage Enlarger
