I have a Broadway with the manu. date of F44.
Gruhn said they didn't manu. Broadway's until the beginning of the '50's. So much for his "expertise".

Some Broadway models definitely are in the 1940 catlog. I had some other evidence of Gruhn expertise about Harmony guitars. He expertised a Kay (small solid body) guitar as a Harmony (Stratotone).

I've got a H961 and the last time I checked it was a 1931 but I lost the sight that I found it on and can't remember it. It was before Harmony bought out Nobility, which was a Ukelele company. They made guitars for about two years.
