Dating a brochure that uses Eurostile

I'm trying to identify the production date of an early brochure the company I worked for produced between 1963 and 1980. It definitely looks like it was done in the mid to late 60s, and I'm guessing it was done with phototypesetting.

I'm wondering if the fact that the main typefaces it uses are Alternate Gothic and Eurostile Bold would help narrowing down the timeframe it was produced.

I know Eurostile was designed in 1962, but perhaps if it wasn't available as prototype until later, that might help me narrow things down.

Any ideas?

You may date the brochure no earlier than a certain date from the typeface used, but that's about it. The only other easily-seen factor that could date your brochure to earlier than late 1963 would be if the address doesn't use a ZIP code.
