1942 Elgin Catalog

UPDATE:  Scanned pics now available in this post.

One frustration of collecting Elgins is the lack of documentation.  While Hamilton collectors have catalogs for every year from 1930 to 1970 as well as production figures for both movements and cases, we Elgin collectors have had to make do with ONE catalog from 1939, and all the ads we could find.

Last week, I saw a 1942 Elgin Catalog on Ebay, and I just HAD TO get it.  And I did!  It arrived last night, and I'm posting it here and elsewhere to get it as widely available as possible.
