That's a bit younger than I was expecting. Thanks Pete.

It kind of pokes a hole in the hypothesis that the Admiral set was the first commercially available color set: Admiral would not have been selling sets with prototype jugs to the public, and if the oldest known production 15GP22 is from the fourth week of 1954, then nobody could have commercially released a set before then. You've gotta have CRTs to put in 'em...
