Default Taylorcraft BC-12D - first introduced?

Does anyone know when the BC-12D was first introduced by Taylorcraft? I find references that say 1938 and others 1942...

specifications

II - Model BC-65, 2 PCLM, Approved July 22, 1939

Model BCS-65, 2 PCSM, Approved October 7, 1939 (Same as Model BC except engine installation)

The 12D had to be later than 1939.

Here's a quote I found: After the war, the BC-12 was updated and became the popular BC-12D, Taylorcraft's most-produced model with almost 4,200 being made.

What I am looking for is confirmation (or not) that the BD-12D was produced and sold before 12/31/1939. I want to attend an event that requires all models to be of airplanes in operation before 1940... This is the "oldest" model I have and without it I will be crew...

Bob,

Unfortunatelly it actually discualifies my plane from participating in the event. They only accept planes in operation before 1940... My buddy flies an Aeronca C3 which qualifies which means I will be crew...
