Found an older gun cleaning kit in another house we bought (and demolished today). Anyone know the date it may have been made?

Westernfield was the name wars placed on their hunting items. Bought my first couple of guns there,also waders.
Back in the day they were the go to place to shop.

I have their 22 auto
i have put a lot of boxes of ammo thru it.

Wards line of outdoors and sporting goods.
1960 - 70's is about right

Still have a Westernfield 12 gauge pump. Last Montgomery Ward store I seen was in Duluth Minn. Wonder if it's still there? I believe they are still a catalog store.
