I have bikes from the 1970s with these headsets, although - as you mention - they were probably first introduced much earlier."

I associate RGF with bottom bracket shells rather than headsets, and I've never seen a boxed RGF headset or one on a bike clearly marked RGF.

When I looked at the ebay photos I noticed that the boxes look a lot like the fragile boxes used by the nylon headsets I used to sell. The RGF headsets do not include the ball bearings and neither did the nylon headsets.

I've long wondered who the actual maker of the nylon headsets was.
