Bob, Thanks for scanning the catalog. You're pretty sure it's a 1950 catalog? I've been comparing it to this one on Bulgier.net which is for the home market: http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/Catalogs/Raleigh47-48/ They seem identical until the last couple pages. I wonder if it could be older? Or maybe they didn't put dates on the US catalogs.
