The catalogs in the "Library" aren't complete, but from the info there, I'd guess '62-'63 based on the
included crossover and logo styles. Just a guess though.

With the grilles off, you can see the frame paint color of the LE15A woofers. I believe they would be blue if they are from around '62 and they would be gray after that... and black after that, but that crossover is an earlier LX5... I had a pair like that and mine were also blue along with the woofers.
