The retroraleighs.com site has a catalog dated at 1962 with some subtle differences such as the swallow style saddle and, perhaps, different mudguards in the Gran Sport model. Could this be a difference in British and American market specifications or does this help determine the catalog dates of these two catalogs?

I have a Gran Sport with the swallow saddle but I've no idea what fenders graced it originally. Would serial number and equipment comparisons among those CR members who have these help?
