Today, a post went up on Facebook Checker World looking for access to production reports. Unfortunately, the paid Checker World archive does not include production reports. We’re happy to report that the free ICTA archive does indeed have production reports, more importantly, access is free.
The various in-the-know Checker experts over at Facebook Checker World suggested that the poster reach out to the Gilmore Museum. No one bothered to mention the ICTA, they never do, oh well, here is the links to all the detailed production reports from 1966 to 1980.
Each or the reports represents calendar years sales. Typically produced in the February of the following year, these reports were used for inventory planning for the following years production. No report was issued for 1981 as planning for shorten 1982 required limited planning.
In the coming months we will be adding earlier production reports. Note to the right above, we have expanded our library in year one production. More to follow.
