Daisy air rifle adverts (1919-1949).

 

These are being sold on Ebay US, some of them as 'artificially aged' metal plaques. I've added the date in the sales ad, where there was one, but I've no idea if they are correct:

 

 

1930s

1930s

 

1949

 

1936

 

1932

 

1948

 

1926

 

1919

 

1931

 

1925

Daisy air rifle evolution from solid castings to tinplate.

 

With thanks to John A for this pic, which he says shows Daisy's:

"evolution from solid castings and drawn tubes towards the ‘tin'-plate mode of construction. To be accurate, the early pre turn-of-the-last century B.B models are not tinplates at all."
