Here's one from 1986 with the original "Mr. Redbook", Dick Yeo, a.k.a. R.S. Yeoman.
ANA Numismatic Personality: R.S. Yeoman
The Redbook started during WWII, but Western Publishing was not permitted to create new products. It was utimately published in 1946.
Prior to 1940 the only catalogs were published by dealers like B. Max Mehl and Wayte Raymond. It was felt that there was a need for an independent publication. A panel of some 25 dealers was enlisted to provide advice and market valuations. Some of those initial dealers included Aubrey Bebee, Abe Kosoff, and Charles Green.
The hobby in 1986 was already quite different than that of 1946, with more emphasis on silver and gold issues rather than the Lincoln Cents and Buffalo Nickels that people started collecting from circulation.
