I have collected LEGO since 1960, and spend years researching the history of LEGO sets, parts and products. I've had help from collectors around the world, as well as the TLG Archives, Vault and Collections in Billund Denmark.
When the folks at TLG get questions from others that they cannot answer... sometimes they refer the questions to me! Reason is... the Archives at TLG are somewhat sparse prior to 1970.
I also contributed to the Fantasia book on collecting (the one with the 1-6 bricks for set rarity).
