Mine is dated 1934.  Some issues have numbers but no dates, or vice versa, don’t understand the irregularity, but Stevens, Lyman, other cats, are likewise irregular.

I agree with Clarence.  This is the era where they quit using a number according to my notes.  If anyone has newer catalogs with a number let me know so I can update my list.

My copy of 89 has both, which is a little unusual.  My copy of the ’33 has date only.  Strangest of all, my ’29 (containing all the hardware) has neither date nor number!  I think I deduced it was ’29 based on internal evidence, but could be wrong.  What was the LAST catalog to include the complete line of hardware, tackle, cutlery, etc.?

The 1934 catalog No. 89 is the last one to use a number. From that point on, they simply have a Date on them.
