Unfortunately, we didn’t use any dating back then – the numbers were basically
sequential for each model. I would guess early to mid 60s for most of the gray
guitar speakers. I believe they went to the black crinkle finish for the E
series (or the K series?) around 1967 or so. If Miller Dial and Plate is still
in business (in Glendale, California) they might have better records, since they
made the foil decals for all those units. Other than that, I can’t help much.
Glad you still like my babies. 🙂 I enjoyed making them.
