Can anyone tell me when Payne switched from blond cane to the darker colored cane ?

As pointed out elsewhere by "fishnbanjo", sometime after Jim Payne took over manufacture he developed the darker cane look for Payne rods. there must have been a transition period while this occurred so one would surmise sometime in the early 1930's.
