The first one in green is 1950.

The last green perch one is usually blue and is from 1951


The blue stag one has a date on the front...can't quite make it out...1949-50?


According to a list I was given by Pete Carman there is one for 1939-40 and no more until 1947. There is one each for 1949 and 1950 apparently.

Hello everyone, I have an update for you all. If you have not already seen one, I have the 1939 - 1940 Allcocks Anglers guide it has a dark green cover with a green stag set inside a lighter green circle emblem on the front, a gift from a friend. In rather tatty but very readable condition I'll put a picture up in a couple of days.
~~~
Rather interesting it is too, I have a question to ask if anyone might know what year did Allcocks change the handles on their Nimrod spinning rods as I recently brought a 8' 6" Nimrod which I am guessing is from the 1930s - 1940s it has the Light Caster type handle and not an all cork handle like you would find on a 1955 Hughes Parry fitted with a sliding winch fitting. Look forward to a message I'll get that pick up shortly and if you have any questions please feel to ask and I'll help as much as I can.

Regards Trevor
