Nice find!! We generally consider that "linen finish cover" catalog the 1936 and that 1935 price list should be in the "leatherette cover" catalog.

So your opinion this is a 36 catalog with a 35 price list. Hard for me to determine the difference between Aqua and Blue covers without a comparison.

Probably the only important difference on the inside of these catalogs is that the 1936 shows the option of a ventilated rib for the SPE-Grade Skeet & Upland Game Gun. On the February 10, 1936, Retail Prices, they list the SPR-Grade which had a vent rib --

The only piece of Savage-Fox paper to surface that pictures the SPR-Grade is the March 5, 1936, Wholesale Price List --

All this to show how confusing this matching dated price lists to undated catalogs can be. No Retail Prices or Wholesale Price List gives the option of a ventilated rib for the SP-or SPE-Grade.
