I was informed that this is a later issue than 1951, the number 1951 might be a catalogue number or item #. The way to tell age is from the markings, and they did not use a full bee back then. If you bid not aware of correct manufacture bid, please withdraw your bid if you wish, thanks.Manufacture DATE, not bid
