1957 - Satellite Explorer Aluminum Helmet By Mirro

4 posts in this topic

The dealer has many, many individual catalog pages up for auction from a Dues Wholesale Distributor toy catalog from 1959. The Dues name can be found at the top of the page. While this particular page is undated, the 1959 year is most likely correct.

Here's a link showing the helmet and box:

Also depicted is Ideal's Electronic Countdown (Missile Base), Timeline dated to 1959, Electronic Fighter Jet and Steve Canyon Helmet.

In the lower right hand corner is a yet-to-be-identified (water powered?) multiple rocket launcher by Park Plastics.

Anyone recognize it?

Hi,

Found the following in the Milwaukee Journal from 8th March 1957.

So it looks like the timeline can move back 2 years.
