I don't think you would have a DQ that is "pre-Duofold", since it stands for "Duofold Quality". Nobody would have known what that meant.

Yes thank you for pointing that out.


Facts about the Raven.


I know that the Raven came in three banding options:


single band

two cap bands.


They were made in the USA.


They all had the same diameter = 0.480 inches


But what lengths

I have seen ones online state 4 inches and one at 5 inches?


does anyone know the correct paremeters for Ravens.

The True Blue and Pastels are both part of the Duofold family so they would not be pre-Duofold either.


They were marketed as smaller, lower-cost alternatives to the Duofolds. They both sold for $3.50 compared to $7.00 for a Senior-sized Duofold.


Unfortunately, I can't help you with the model numbers or with the Raven.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
