The Salesman joined Sherlock Hemlock and Roosevelt Franklin as new additions to the line when Questor took the Child Guidance brand from Topper in 1973. Evidence suggests that the 3 were sold between 73 and 77 and were phased out by Gabriel in 1978. The quality of these 3 matches Topper's--softer rubber and better detail.
