Yes they all date to 62-63. I can produce some documenting data from old American Modeler magazines from 62-63 where G.Harty Stine makes comments about them.

Also the letter head shows the NYC 1962 mail drop address except for the last one which shows Stamford,CT where GHS lived from 62 onward till he moved to AZ.
