That's what I'm saying too. The least they could do is just print,

"Circa 1941" or "First built 1929"

There wouldn't have to be any huge info, really, more than that. Any deeper investigation could then be at the consumer's own quest. But, Westerfield really does an excellent job on era, don't they?
